A very disgruntled difficult child went off to school this morning...said it wasn't fair that she had to work on her birthday. lol. We hugged this morning, it lasted forever. I closed my eyes and remembered her birth-day and her babyhood. Yes, of course, I cried. My tiniest baby is 19 now. I wish I could say it was so easy that it seems like it went by in the blink of an eye - hahaha. I can only say such things here. We're having her favorite tex-mex tacos for dinner and easy child made her a 'fancy' cake for after. I took her shopping at Kohl's yesterday for clothes as her gift. It's the only store card I have and since money is so tight, we have to be practical. She's happy.
