15 Things

10256247_10151985787017653_1254481822125875544_nLast birthday post or a while, I promise.  My oldest daughter is 15 today.  That of course makes this a pretty special day for me as well since I have been a mother for 15 years today.  Hard to believe.  I have messed up a lot, but my daughter (or any of my kids for that matter) don’t seem any worse off for that.  As a matter of fact my daughter is pretty amazing.  Here are 15 things that make her so awesome…

  1. She takes really good care of all of her younger siblings. Even the one closest in age to her, most of the time. She helps her with homework.
  2. She is really smart.  Probably smarter than she gives herself credit for.
  3. She has her father’s sense of humor and smart mouth which is really endearing, but also really aggravating sometimes.
  4. Family is very important to her.
  5. She is very sensitive to other people’s feelings.
  6. At such a young age she has already set so many amazing goals for her future.
  7. She is a rule follower.
  8. A bit of a people pleaser.
  9. She is a homebody.
  10. She loves with her whole heart, but watch out if you betray her.
  11. She doesn’t forget anything.
  12. She loves Moe’s Queso.
  13. She is often very childish and playful which is great because she’s not in any big hurry to grow up.
  14. She does not like change, but once she accepts it she excels.
  15. She is turning into quite an amazing young lady that I am so lucky to have the pleasure of raising and watching learn and grow.

And that is just a small fraction of what a great kid my newly turned 15 year old is.  I love that we get to experience so many firsts together as parent and child.  Walking this path with her thus far has been great and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for her.  The skies the limit.

Happy 15th birthday to my first born.  I hope it has been an amazing day.  It’s not so bad to be halfway to thirty, is it?
