Wow! You're 18!
My daughter turns 18 on the 18th! It's just so hard to believe. And the worse thing is that I always say that it's hard to believe - every year as they get older. I guess it's because I don't feel older - well, not that old anyway.
But she is 18 and she's my baby. I am totally proud of her accomplishments and can see that she is making plans for a successful life. Applying to college, studying really hard, trying to show that she can do it. I'm pleased about everything with her. Where she's been and where she is now are world's apart. Any mother would be pleased to have such a wonderful daughter.
So, here's to you! Happy Birthday, baby!
