My daughter is celebrating her 19th birthday this week. It is an exciting time for us both. Can you imagine? 19 years!
Sometimes, when I try to remember her crawling on the floor or saying her first words (which was early, very early), I have only vague memories.
She is so big now (she is taller than me, but that is easy), yet she is still young and acts like a child. She is so mature, yet she is naïve.
Our kids’ birthdays are a wonderful way for us to take stock of our parenting. Every year, they grow and mature and learn about themselves, we do too. We learn about our achievements or our challenges and it makes us better people, better parents.
