My oldest turns 15 this week. Yeah, 15. Wow.
She has grown up so much this last year. In fact it seems like each week brings some kind of growth in her character as she figures out adult behavior vs. childish behavior. I could not be more proud of her. We are in the Bay Area this weekend to see my mom. The soon to be 15 year old is out with my sister getting a haircut, learning to use makeup at a … make up place? Wherever girls go to learn to use and then purchase makeup. She sent me a some pictures, and they look like they are having a blast!
High school next year. Driving too. Probably boys soon. I mean I am fighting that one right now, but reality is that she will still be interested and I may change my no dating policy because she is very capable of making wise choices in that area and might as well let her make mistakes while I can be here to help and guide.
Happy Birthday kiddo.
