Happy Birthday to My Daughter
I haven’t been a woman in this state of affairs for a long time. For the last 7,469,280 minutes of my life I have been a mother of one or more teenagers. But today the streak ends. My younger daughter, obviously the baby of the crew, turns 20 today.Today I lose my title as parent of a teenager; all my kids are now twenty-somethings.
Happy birthday, dear, and I wish you a day that brings you much laughter and love.
