So the teenager has turned 16. I still can't believe it! Boy has time flown. I still remember being pregnant with her and her delivery. It was my longest and toughest of the 3.... almost 3 days of contractions, walking, pacing, swaying and 2 hospital visits before they would admit me. And then finally 2 hours of pushing when the doctor threatened me with a C-section and with in 15 mins she was born. All 5 lbs, 8 oz of her!!  

This teenager and I have been through a lot together. A seperation, divorce, moving (several times), meeting her future stepdad, a wedding, and 2 baby brothers to name a few. Being that I was a "teen mom", I was 18 when I had her, I feel like we are more like sisters than mom and daughter which I am sure Super Nanny would have a fit over. But just in the last year or two I think I have turned more into the mom role as I often hear "OH MOM.... thats embarrassing".  LOL!

In just 2 years she will be 18 and close to graduation and off to college. I know these next 2-3 years are going to fly by like the blink of an eye. So I am trying to take it all in and cherish these times we have with her. She truly has blossomed into a beautiful young lady. I love this teenager!
