I told her not to.
She did it anyway.
This beautiful girl of mine went & turned 17 on me.
She is growing into such a fine young lady. Everything I was hoping she’d be. Independent. Hardworking. Responsible. Kind. Strong.
I find myself constantly battling with letting her spread her wings, and keeping her under mine. It’s the hardest thing I’ve had to go through so far. But I will have to say she makes it fairly easy by being responsible and not pushing the boundaries too far.
She’s my oldest…my guinea pig, so to speak. I worry about whether I’m preparing her good enough for the future. Battling with letting her see & work through the tough stuff, while also trying to protect her from all the evil in the world.
She’s a good girl…so we must be doing something right! I’m so very proud of her!
