Our daughter turned 16 this year, time really do fly fast! I can't believe she's a Junior now. I don't even want to entertain the thought of her graduating from high school. I don't think I am ready emotionally lol. When she started driving, I was thinking to myself, did I really gave birth to her (lol). I am glad she's not like me who is scared of driving, she's courageous and very cautious.
Anyway, when it comes to creativity, I lack of it, big time! I am not like many Moms who has so many creative ideas when celebrating their children's birthday. In fact, I am the most boring Mom in the world, in my opinion ha ha. But that doesn't mean, I don't love my children, oh I DO, they mean the world to me! I just don't have that talent or skills of being creative.
Anyway, I only made her mini pancakes for breakfast and decorated our eat-in kitchen windows a little and that's it. I am happy though that my children doesn't really care much for elaborate stuff. I am glad that they are content with our simple ways of showing our love to them.
A friend of mine offered to take her pictures at Oglebay Park, which I am grateful. Our daughter had fun doing the photo shoot. If you want a fun shoot for your pictures, you can lookup Turquoise Sunset Photography on Facebook or online. She's an awesome photographer.
At 16, my daughter have so many opportunities that I never had growing up. It makes me happy that they have these privileges, thanks to my husband's undying support.
I can only hope and pray that I will live long enough to see them have their own families and be successful of whate3ver careers they choose.
