The Scream

Tomorrow morning at precisely 7:12 a.m. MST, I will officially become the mother of a teenage daughter.

This pretty much sums up my current state of emotion.

Funny how thirteen years ago, I thought having a baby girl was a great idea. The cute little booties! Those adorable little chubby cheeks! The sweet little cooing noises!

Amongst the smell of baby powder and the color of all things pink, I simply neglected to consider in only thirteen short years, I'd be drowning in sarcasm, moodiness and hormones.

Your condolences are gratefully accepted and appreciated.

P.S. I love you, kiddo.
Happy Birthday!
