B is 16!

Dear B,

16! WTF? Seriously, how did this happen? One minute you were my adorable baby taking all the cans out of the bottom cupboard and now you are getting ready to get your license!

However, it happened.... I am grateful for the fun we have together, the rides to swim practices and meets, our shopping trips and just hanging out in general. You are the most perceptive 16 year old I know. Actually your are more perceptive that many people 10 years older than you.

Surprisingly enough, you remind me a lot of me at your age. If I could tell my 16 year old self one thing it would be to relax a little. I was stressed all the time. It's much easier to enjoy things when you are not worrying about the next day, week or month. Take things one day or a few days at a time. Breathe. And don't ever forget that "you can do it", you are one amazing young lady. And yes, I said "young lady". I could have said, "young broad", but I think you need to be 18 before I call you a broad :)

I love you millions xoxo

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea!

I just don't understand how she is getting so old while you stay so incredibly young. :)

You are an amazing young lady with lots of spunk! I can't beleive that you are 16 and soon will be driving your Nana all over the place. Hopefully, we will get some keys for that key ring. Here's to many more years of fun with you and talking to people in the grocery store as we go down the aisles together. Love you to the end of hte numbers, B.
