My daughter turned 16 yesterday.
I'm still looking for anything that is sweet about it. My baby now wears more makeup than I do (I don't wear any), dresses in clothes that I will never again fit into, and talks to me like she is my Mother.
Just last week she started kindergarten, now she has half the boys in town fawning over her, I can't keep her home to save my (or her) life, no matter how much I want to spend time with her.
My son turned 18 last month, two milestone birthdays in one year is hard to deal with. I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that my baby boy is an adult now.
Sorry, I just realized how depressed I am.
I also realized as I was typing this that she was coming in to tell me she was going down to her BF's house, then to town and would be back by ten. I minimized the screen but I cant seem to stop the tears from falling and even in this dark room she saw; she stopped and hugged me and said she wouldn't go, while wiping a tear away. I told her it wasn't her fault, to go on, I will be fine.
She argued with me, I told her to go on. She went. They always go.
Hopefully, they will keep coming back.
I have to go start some laundry, work tomorrow, thanks for listening...
