Now I have two teenagers.
Do you remember when we started this blog? Do you?
I had these.
And now I have teenagers. A pair of them!
We celebrated my girl's big day at our favorite local hotel with a small group of likeminded girls whose parents done raised dem right.
When I asked what kind of activities we should plan for the party, my girl rolled her eyes at me and laughed. "we don't do activities, mom. we just talk."
I threw a few tricks into the ol' bag, though, and just as the sun started to go down after an afternoon of swimming and screeching and, yes, lots of talking, I tossed each girl one of my tricks
When the cans were empty, they took advantage of a convenient washing station.

Then it was back to the pool for a little synchronized swimming
|I'm apparently not allowed to show you the video|
|loooooooove... you can just see my girl's legs on the near side of the bed.|
In the morning, I was dozing when I heard the bellman come by to help my neighbors check out of their room, then I heard them both alluding to "this mess" and "what happened out here?"
Oh dear. I peeked through the blinds to make sure the trash I had oh so carefully picked up and removed from the room hadn't fallen over
|That was a pack of wild animals I heard!|
Then we enjoyed a gorgeously leisurely and full day of pure joy by the pool.
It's not so bad, this life.
|Happy Birthday, you beautiful baby of mine.|
