|Lindsey at her murder-mystery themed birthday party.|
Lindsey just turned 13. This is an amazing time of her life, and it is incredible to watch.
Her wit was brought to light when my family played cards when my mom and stepdad visited. She was funny. Witty. Intelligent. And won every game.
She is kind to her friends. She gives advice when it is asked, none when it is not, and a joke when the tension is high.
She speaks to adults with confidence and politeness, and has appropriate conversations and not awkward silence.
It is hard to believe that this independent, confident girl is my child, and not someone else's. Wasn't it just yesterday she was a little tiny baby, brought home from the hospital, with a mother who wondered how the nurses could entrust such a little life into her care?
Yet here she is, despite my foibles, a young lady growing, becoming her own.
I am so amazed and grateful.
