    13 years ago today it was a Friday and there were big, fat snowflakes leisurely falling to the ground...the day difficult child was born.

    For her birthday, she got an acoustic guitar and lessons. She is so excited she's giggling. Her first lesson is tomorrow.

    I posted pics on the Watercooler of when my kids were much younger. I miss those years. We don't realize at the time just how fast they will go by.

    We've gone through many years of struggle with difficult child and while things are still a work in progress, difficult child has come a long way and has matured quite a lot in the last year.

    Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

    I bet she's thrilled with guitar and lessons. Hope she had a super birthday and that her teen years leave her with some special memories.

    Happy birthday, Wynter!

    Heather, my daughter A turned 13 on February 18. Our girls were born less than a week apart. Like Wynter, A has come a long way from her darkest days. I hope both girls continue to grow and prosper.

    Hugs to you on your little girl's special day.

    Enjoy her til she hits around 15. I dunno what happens to girls at that age, but even easy child's are next to impossible to live with again til around late 16 - 17. :tongue: lol But 13 can be fun.

    Happy Birthday difficult child!!
