Wordless Wednesday… My Daughter is a Teen!

Welcome to Wordless (or NOT so wordless) Wednesday,

I have missed visiting and being visited ;)…

Her 13th Birthday!!!!
 Out of 6 kids, I was given 2 girls, and although the majority of their lives they have been a bit “un-girly”, for her 13th Birthday, my NEW Teenager wanted to dress like a girl for School 😉

We all made such a huge hype about her 13th Birthday coming up, she was SO excited, AND THEN?

Her best friend was grounded so she wasn’t able to come over for a hug and some cake, money was tight so we couldn’t go out to celebrate like I would have wanted too, and the worst part was that EVERYONE forgot her Birthday!!!

No one called her, she kept checking her phone every few minutes hoping she missed a text, nothing.  Finally at 11:30p.m I asked my MIL why she didn’t call or text her Granddaughter.  She forgot!  She immediately called everyone and suddenly my baby’s phone was ringing like crazy.  Although she was happy they finally called, I can tell she was hurt, I mean it’s not everyday a girl finally becomes a TEEN!!! 😉

So to make her smile, because what kind of Mommy would I be if I didn’t make her smile?  I ran to the grocery store, bought her an adorable cake that looked like a rose bouquet, and we sang her Happy Birthday… again 😉

As she was getting ready to pose for a picture of her biting her cake, her baby brother ran under her and shoved the cake into her face!  We all looked in shock, I guess we were waiting and fearing for that teen scream fest…
suddenly she bursts out laughing and next thing I know, there is an all out cake war in my dining room!!!  There is no way I could have gotten mad after the crappy day she had, and as the photographer, I was spared from the battle 😉

  1. Awwwwwww!!! That poor baby!!! My parents forget my birthday every year so I know how it feels. 🙁 I sure hope everyone makes it up to her!!

  2. Thanks for sharing this story! I loved it! I even told it to my husband because i thought it was so cute. What a great birthday story 🙂 Happy Birthday!

  3. LMAO I would love to have seen the initial shock of everyone after the cake in the face LOL

    Well she looks very pretty

    A very Happy Birthday to your daughter I’m glad her day turned out a happy one.

    Have a birthdaylicious week 😉

  4. Happy Birthday to her! Becoming a teen is a big deal! And 6 kids and a cake fight?! That must have been a fun mess to clean up!

    Happy WW!

  5. Awww! I’m so glad that in the end she had an unforgettable birthday! I’m simultaenously looking forward to and dreading the day Princess Nagger becomes a teen – she just became an official tween on her last birthday. 🙂 Hopefully her little brother won’t smush her cake in her face – though it turning into a cake war and lots of laughter isn’t a bad thing! 😉

  6. What a sweet story! You’re an awesome mom to just roll with the punches like that and your daughter is clearly pretty awesome too to turn cake in the face into a fun event! Lol Happy birthday to your young lady! 🙂

  7. Happy Birthday “Teen Girl”!!! Have a blast! Now the fun begin. Thanks for hosting the party, came hopping over here from Oh boy, oh Boy, oh Boy party!

  8. Ahhhh I remember my daughters 13th B-Party. What fun we had. My oldest daughter was feminine, but my youngest was a bit of a TomBoy. So, I understand what you say here. 🙂 Nice to meet you.

  9. Happy Happy Birthday. So wonderful to have a teen in the house…

    My mom forgets too at times=) LOL

    We have a family of 8 like yours=)

    Happy WW!

  10. Oh I remember having my birthday forgotten one year. I was working at the mall and my family didn’t send anyone to pick me up. They actually had the cake and Ice cream without me! Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl!

  11. Oh Lily! I can imagine how hard that must’ve been on your mama heart. I would’ve been so upset. I’m SO glad the rest of the night went well. =) Birthdays don’t always go the way we hope. My son’s 13th last year wasn’t what I’d hoped for either. Unfortunately, that was a fail on my part. =/ Thanks for coming by the other day! <3

  12. I remember having my birthday forgotten one year too. Nobody could make it to my party….it was terrible. But I am so glad this one turned around. She laughed!?!? That is amazing 🙂 Happy birthday to your daughter!! 13 – so grown up!

  13. What a beautiful young lady. You are now the Mom of a Tween. I suppose you are thinking where did the time go? They grow up so fast but to us mothers they are always our little kids.
