It's my girlie's birthday today. She's 14.

At 1:40 p.m. on this day in 1996, I became a mama.

Now there's a little slice of awesomeness for you.

Happy birthday, sweet girl. I love you.

p.s. I'm sorry I said that one skirt and that shirt weren't your best look the other day. Fourteen years and you'd think I wouldn't put my foot so squarely into my mouth, but guess what? I still occasionally do.

I love seeing you become.

    Happy birthday to your girl! I have a 14 year old as well, so I know how you feel about sticking your foot in your mouth. I seem to do that daily…

    Happy Birthday, Aidan! Since I have the pleasure of knowing you thru your mother’s eyes, I know that you are a fabulous person. Thanks for letting me share some of your life. I must be an internet auntie, haha.

    Cathy, you are a kind and loving mother. It’s OK to put your foot in your mouth occasionally.

    Happy day for everyone to shower you with love, and affection and a amazing GIFTS Aidan…

    I had to LOL at the foot in mouth comment. I am still trying to thaw from the icy glares I got after suggesting my own bundle of teen joy might want to relax the eye makeup, that reminded me of a Micheal Jackson’s thriller, just a bit… Ekkkkk the experimental years!!!

    Sigh…no fair. She needs to go back to being 8 again. An 8 year old writing our names on the front steps in chalk. Please? Seeing her morph into YOU is making me feel really, really old.
