Lucky 13

Remember how the prize winning comment was #213? And how I said that it was a random number? It wasn’t. I lied. You see, it was representative of something major that happens tomorrow. My daughter Hannah will turn 13. Yup, my baby is a teenager. Sigh.

I could write a lot of things about Hannah and how fast she’s grown and I could spend time contemplating where these years went. I could tell you that she’s a great actress and she sings in the shower. I could mention that she has tried to learn to knit but just can’t stick with it. I could tell you that she has lots of friends and a great personality. Or I could even talk about the time she tripped and fell over absolutely nothing. But I won’t because I might embarrass her. And you guys know how easy it is to embarrass a teenage girl. And how long you have to suffer the consequences.

So, I’ll just say Happy Birthday, Hannah. And then I’ll spend some time contemplating how we went from this:

to this:

in the blink of an eye.

Won’t you all join me and wish Hannah a happy birthday?

  7. Happy Birthday, Hannah!! I hope you have a great day!

    Makes you wonder how far the next “blink of an eye” will take you, huh, Carole? Hannah looks like she’s standing in MY old kitchen in that wee pic — same doors and hardware! Kind of a blast from the past.
