Today, my elder child turned 13.
I am the mother of a teen.
We won't even begin to broach the whole "only five more years" thing.
I'll break down into ugly crying.
My baby girl.
We had a good day - it would have been great but we got stuck in so much traffic that we spent a total of about five hours in the car today.
There was a LOT of traffic.
We only went to the mall.
A. wanted a birthday Build-A-Bear.
It's kind of a tradition.
So two birds with one stone (an actual benefit to close birthdays!)
and they both got a birthday treat at BABW and enjoyed the new Lego store!
And we all just had a nice afternoon together.
And then we went to dinner.
And a very happy day for us all!
