Wow, it's hard to believe today I am the mother of my first teenager. Happy Birthday Ben! My sweet little Ben is finally the big kid I never imagined he would be.
It's very cliche to say I don't know where the years have gone...but really I don't. Heck, in my mind, I still feel like a teenager.
At thirteen, my boy is obsessed with basketball and corvettes. He is excelling in school...I have never had to tell this kid to do his homework. He's confident and funny with lots of friends. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Ben...I wish you the happiest birthday...may all your dreams come true. Please be easy on me through these teenage years...K?
Advice on how to navigate these "upcoming super-wonderful" years is welcome!!
