So, Vivi is waiting to be 16. I think others are waiting for her to be 16 too. I never imagined myself being my own mother. You know the one that always tells you what you don't want to hear. Well, that's me now. I say the same things my mom used to say. "make good choices", "God knows the truth", "be a good example", "you will get butterflies in your tummy"..alot of good that did me!! I just don't want Viv to struggle as I did and do. And I also know even when you do everything right, it doesn't mean happily ever after. But you have a better shot at it.
Hey, being the mom of a teenager is NOT easy.I feel like I should kiss my mothers feet for putting up with 4 girls!I am however blessed with a sweet daughter. One who listens to me chatter away even when she does not want to. One who still likes to snuggle and give me kisses (as she text's of course). And most importantly one who comes to me for advice and "pinky promise" secrets.
I love her so much and I am very proud of the young woman that she is. I just hope her fingers don't go numb from so much texting!
