Today the Dancer turns 13. My first female teenager. A she-nager.
I often hear people warn about when girls become teenagers. It’s all hormones, boys, shopping, etc., they say. OK, I consider myself warned. Not necessarily prepared, but warned. That may be true. But whatever the future may bring, I will be here for my girl.
I am proud of the beautiful, intelligent, caring, responsible young woman forming before me. She has so much to offer the world. I am excited for her and what the future may hold. Even if she goes through a hormonal, boy-crazy, money-spending stage. I will love her no matter what.
Happy 13th birthday, sweetie!
