We’ve been totally focused on Bat Mitzvah weekend, hurtling toward next Saturday like a glittery, homemade asteroid. But Josie, in general, has been more interested in this Sunday – today, her 13th birthday, the day I “officially” become the mother of a teenager. Her auspicious response: “You have to remove the tweenager category on the blog! Woo hoo, tweenager no more!”
And there it is. One day you’re reading Frog and Toad, the next day they’re out for sushi, sporting better accessories than yours. This is the circle of life.
Happy, Happy Birthday to my one and only, tootsie-roll-and-cranberry-eating, one of a kind girl. We love you more than blogs can say.
