I am now the very proud owner of a Teenager!
My beautiful little girl was thirteen yesterday. Thirteen!! I am not sure how that happened quite so quickly ~ I really don't feel old enough to be a Mother of a teenager, but that's what I am. It doesn't seem like all that long ago since she was born and whisked away to Intensive Care in the Special Care Baby Unit where I sat holding her tiny little hand through a little door in the incubator and didn't even dare to dream about birthdays. However! Here we are celebrating her thirteenth birthday and what a lovely day we all had too.
The present of choice this year was an ipod touch.
Yesterday was an extra special day for our family as it was also our wedding anniversary. I have been married to my wonderful husband for twelve years! All those years ago we thought that it would be a lovely idea to get married and have our daughter christened on her first birthday. A little unconventional perhaps ~ but something that is very special to us as a family.
We tend not to do very much to celebrate our anniversary as birthday celebrations are obviously much more important in the minds of children. Our anniversary night out was a trip to The Handmade Burger Co. accompanied by the birthday girl, her little brother and her best friend. All very romantic I must say, but very enjoyable none the less :O)xx
