AND WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY THIS WAS!!! HAPPY 18 TO OUR LITTLE GIRL!!
Yesterday our firstborn came of age - 18!!
It used to be 21. Strange since many started to work at 15....
Now she can vote, order wine but not buy it....take her drivers license and pay her own bills!!!Her room is still a lumberyard, but now it has a new sofa, carpet and lamp.
|Moviecake- Potter, LOTR and Star Wars|
She arrived with her behind first, awkvard little person, don't try that at home!
Now she collects information from the universities and highschools.
A Nikon camera. ( No, they didn't pay me for writing that) Oh, and jewellry. And more jewellry. And a Star Wars lamp and bobblehead of Princess Leia. And a pillow with motives from Big Bang Theory.....
An amazing scrapbook from her best friend!
We made decorations with old pics hanging all over the place but that scrapbook was totally heartbreaking and wonderful!!! When everyone had left and we had swiped and cleaned and finished the dishes we took one leftover good friend home to watch the Second chance competition before the finals of the Swedish Melody festival. We almost got another year with Loreen but something happend and we are still not sure if we will send 87 year old Owe the great!!!
Well, watching your children grow and get more independent is something most of you already have gone through and many of you also know the feeling of grandchildren.. we will catch up eventually, getting older by the minute. But the good Lord gave us two beautiful girls and hopefully he will keep us bright and shining for as long as they need us. Scary thing this parenthood, you are not even half grown yourself and sometimes they have the answers and I stand corrected. Only thing we can hope for is that we have given them enough love and security to last the turmoils and backlashes that will come their way. Prayers and good wishes will follow. Next year she will graduate and you are going to hear my whining through the screen but also our joy. The whining will come from the expences of: balldress, examsdress, hairdresser, coach or sportscar for the transport home, graduationhat, reception and gifts, food and drink, limo for the ball, no, let's leave that.
Now she is 18 and it's quite enough for the parents to handle!!! And we are still eating the cake...........
