Sweet 16

Today is the spawn's 16th birthday. I've already waxed poetic in our shared journal for her to read when she wakes up, so I'm not going to share those personal feelings here.

But doesn't time fly?

I miss the baby of her, but am enjoying the woman she's turning out to be. Thank God she still acts a little immature. I hope that part of her never goes away.

Today is the most important day of the year for me, and I feel a little melancholy.


Happy birthday, sweetheart.

She is adorable, like her Mom!

Happy Happy Birthday to Kelsey!!!

(I know how you feel, that bittersweet feeling. Time is a skyrocket!)

Awwwwww, thank you! I'll tell her.

Time is a scary thing. Seems like only yesterday, she was four and with her arms in the air, begging me to "hold her". =/

A very happy birthday to your lovely daughter!

And though the question was doubtless rhetorical, time does indeed fly. I remember the night that the little guy sitting on my wife's shoulders in the user pic was born, and he's 22 1/2 now!

I hope she does keep that sense of fun, and refuses to mature too much. It's certainly possible; I'm three times K's age, and to quote my wife, "[I'm] such a 12 year old."

All men are 12-year-olds! LOL :D She gets the immaturity from me, definitely :) :D

I didn't know you had a 20-something-year-old! Wow. :) Neat. :D I've seen your daughter, and she's lovely :)

Thanks! She's the youngest. Our younger son is 19.

I don't have recent photos of the boys (they won't pose), but these are from about five years ago.

Here's our eldest:



Here's the middle guy:

Thank you! Fortunately, they mostly favor their mother.

I dunno about that; I think they look like a mixture of both of you, particularly your oldest son :)

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
