I have a teenager.
My daughter turned 13 today.
I can't believe I'm the mother of a teenager.
I'm too young to be the mother of a teenager.
Way too young.
..... this is where you say, "RIGHT!"....
I will not panic.
I will remain calm.
I will continue to act like I know exactly what I'm doing.
Heh... its fooled everyone so far!
It really is remarkable, and a bit unfair, how quickly they grow up. Thirteen years. THIRTEEN YEARS. Seriously, where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday our tiny little bundle of joy came into our lives. And now.... she's a teenager! So while part of me is in shock and perhaps a bit sad that she's done so much growing up in such a short time, another part of me is so incredibly proud of the young woman she is becoming. She is truly one of the most good natured, patient, thoughtful, empathetic, and helpful people I know. She is a good student, a passionate dancer, an active girl scout, and she loves to read!
Since we are both avid readers, and often read the same young adult novels, we decided to start a blog together where we could share our thoughts on the books with other readers. And we thought her 13th birthday would be a great day to start! Our mommy daughter book blog is called Bookalicious and tonight we posted our first duo review of Anna Godbersen's debut novel, The Luxe.
