My oldest daughter is 15 years old today.  I hate to sound cliche but it really does seem like only yesterday that she was a bouncy little sprite jumping on the furniture. She is now growing into a beautiful young woman, but I’m happy she’s still so much just a kid too.

So far the teen years have been kind to our relationship, although remembering my teen years I know that could change any second. I am happy for now that we still have the occasional movie night at home together and that she still talks to me sometimes.

She is smart and socially conscious. And I’m so happy to have her in my life.

Happy birthday to my beautiful daughter.
