The eldest turned 15. Over the last few weeks I've been practicing saying I have a 15-year old, but it still sounds crazy today even though now it is real. I don't think anything can really prepare you for parenting a teen. She's much closer to being an adult than being a child. It's amazing to watch her spread her wings a little more each day. She's pretty responsible. She's very likable. She can be very serious, and she can be very funny. She also has raging hormones. She is a teenager after all. It comes with the territory. :)
Unfortunately she also has the flu. Spending the day in bed with a sore belly wasn't exactly what she wanted, but there's always next weekend.
Here's to another year of growing and learning and coping and cracking jokes.
