We love you Becca- you are a joy. Happy 13th Birthday!
Thursday, February 14, 2008
Today, my Becca-girl turned 13, and I am the mother of two teens! Philip, Becca's next younger brother who totally adores his older sister, spent his very own gift card on jewelry for her at Walmart. (Smart boy, that one!) When her dad asked what she wanted for her birthday, she requested a new Bible, so he made a special trip across town to purchase one for her- a hot pink and brown number with pink-trimmed pages and a fashionable belt closure. Since he is not "up" on teen fashion, he was not too impressed with his purchase, but she was, and they are both quite pleased. He was glad to buy this for her and asked if she wanted anything else. "Well," she said, "I'd really like it if you'd fix the dishwasher!" Oh, she's such a smart cookie, and I think her dad just might do it for her. We all have our fingers crossed...
