I know most of you brides out there probably don't have children yet...it's interesting to watch them grow up and remember them as babies and then suddenly see them running off to high school football games, dances, hanging out at the movies and wanting to know when you are going to start teaching them to drive! Takes me back to my own 15th year when my mom took me to the local college university parking lot on a Sunday in the off season and had me start putting around hitting the gas and then the break and learning how to effectively turn a steering wheel. :)
Here is me at about 15 years old:
I don't know why I felt like it was a good idea to 'flip off' the camera with my middle finger sticking out of my mitt...silly.
And here is my now 15 year old:
Notice any resemblance? I had braces, she has braces...although I am hoping she will be getting them off soon - like before our wedding in about 2 months! She's close so be praying for us :)
Anyway, just wanted to wish my precious little angel a very happy birthday today! I guess this will technically be my last two months as a 'single mom' since come April 16th, I won't be single anymore and Jordan will now have a step-father. I am really blessed that she and Mr Fix It get it along so well...though it's hard to raise a teenage daughter and deal with the emotions and concerns that come along with that, he truly loves her and tells me all the time what a 'good kid' she is. I hope he remembers that once he is dealing with curfews, screaming girls running around the house for sleepovers and boys stealing her attention. :)
