Happy Birthday, Baby!

It’s official. I am the mother on an 18-year old! Just saying that makes me want to cry. I don’t know how this is even possible or where the time went. All I know is I am blessed to have such an amazing daughter. She is kind, respectful, hard-working, responsible, determined, witty, and has a strong moral character. All that and she genuinely likes me! How many parents of teenagers can say that?! I love you, Allegra! I hope you have a very happy birthday.

    Happy Birthday. She gets all those attributes from her mom – no doubt.

    Happy Birthday!
    I am also blessed to have 3 great kids, 20, 24, and 27 who all have those attributes and I am so proud of them. Time sure does fly by.

    The years go by so fast- my boys are pushing 50. How did this happen? I just thank
    God I am still here to enjoy them and their families. Your baby is beautiful, Karen.
    Mary Thanks for all you do

    My niece is going to be 22 at the end of Sept, and graduating from college with her Master’s next May.
    The older you get, the faster time goes!
    Karen, I know how much your kids mean to you, and how much you love them.
    Sometimes good mothers and loving parents are hard to come by.
    It warms my heart that you are one of the good ones.
    Happy Birthday Allegra.

    You must have been scoring deals then, too, Karen. I believe that is a “Reading is Essential” shirt from Scholastic, if I’m not mistaken. Happy Birthday, Allegra!
