That moment when you realize that your baby is no longer a baby. No one ever tells you that the hardest part of having kids is that they grow up; it's the good and the bad in a sense. If you know me, you know that much like a faucet my eyes just drip when I think about how amazing and special this little girl is to me. Today, this beautiful lady turns 13 and I've loved every moment of being a part of it and watching her so effortlessly be what she has become. Happy birthday, sweet Mootsie! I am so thankful for you.
Shameless brag, I know. However, I am so proud of this girl. I've never met a kid who wasn't just serious about pursuing her dream but was so intensely focused on it. She makes me so proud! She found out this morning, she got the part in the school musical she wanted and we're having a blast in NYC seeing all the shows. I'd say her 13th birthday will have been one for the ages!
