We have a TEENAGER among us!
So, as of yesterday, we have a teenager among us. Kamryn turned 13 yesterday! She has been waiting for this birthday for a while, to be able to say her age with it ending in "teen." We celebrated from 8:45 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. We just happened to notice this as we were having cake at 8:45 last night, way later than planned. Her birthday wishes have changed since she was little. For this day, she wanted to go shopping at the mall with me and out to lunch with Lance. First of all, I am not a fan of the mall (haven't been there in years), second it was a Saturday, and third, it's 2 weeks before Christmas. But she had been looking forward to this for a long time. So, we went. Kamryn wanted to know why it took so long to find a parking spot :) But it was fun to see how excited she was to go into any store she wanted. She took her babysitting money and was super smart with how she spent it. As we left the mall 2 1/2 hours later, all I had to do was look at the smile on my teenage daughter's face to know that it was well worth dealing with the crowds and chaos to take her shopping at the mall. Happy Birthday, Kamryn. You are a great teenager...so far. 2 days down... :)
