Tween in the house



My big girl is now a tween.. I had a little cry - a crazy happy can hardly believe it type cry. Her birth was an absolute stand out incomparable moment in my life, so many emotions and sensations crammed into seconds and then the mothering began..

 

So last Saturday, about an hour short of exactly 11 years since I first heard her voice, I raised a glass full of fine Australian Sparkling, met her daddy's eyes, took a sip and smiled.

 Happy birthday sweetheart. x

Happy Birthday, beautiful 11 year old! And birth*day to you too, proud mama. The tween years are a blast. A sweet taste of the teen years to come (which I gotta say, I am LOVING).
