The teenage years are hard on a mommy. They want to talk less, where there earbuds more, and pay far more attention to their devices that you. It's frustrating at times, but watching her grow into a young woman is exciting to see too. Lately, I have watched the Tomboy tendencies slowly diminish as she begins to experiment daily with makeup, and actually embrace girlie clothes (every once in a while.) Taking her shopping for Grandma and Grandpa's anniversary party was one of the best days we have had together in such a long time. I was in heaven watching her try on dozens of dresses, getting her opinions on my choices, and taking pictures of each other in our favorites. Theres nothing more fun than playing dress up with your daughter, even when it happens in a dressing room of a department store!
|Pie Face? I don't think my friends and I would have been as excited about this game as the kiddo's are these days.|
After staying awake til almost 4am, the scene was rough in the morning!
I thought I was never going to be able to wake them up. But, as soon as I said the words biscuits and gravy it was a stampede down the stairs. Kevin has never been so happy to accommodate. He loves making breakfast for the kids!
