Oh what a ride it's been with this child LOL
14 years ago, I was a young newlywed, giving birth to my first child. It was such a scary experience and nothing with that birth went right, I was exhausted by the time she came out, but what joy to see that beautiful little face.
And now here we are, with a 14 year old. This quirky, independent, self assured, strong personality, hilarious girl.
It's not always easy, but then I think any mom with a teenager knows that. I can't even begin to let myself think that in just 2 years she'll be driving.....oh boy.
I wouldn't have it any other way though, I think my husband and I are extremely blessed with the beautiful, smart children we have.
So I wish my daughter nothing but the best in life. I can't wait to go along on this ride, to embark on this new journey as she continues to grow into a beautiful young lady, as we get ready to start High School and are faced with so many new adventures.
Happy Birthday Jasmine, we love you so much and are so very proud of you.
Here's a picture of her cake, this cake that made me miss out on Cooking Thursday, and has been giving me headaches for the past 3 days as batch after batch of modeling chocolate and fondant went into the trash.
After hours of working on it, it is still not right, the Arizona heat is horrible for fondant. The minute the panels went on the cake they started drooping and pulling in all directions.
The result is a pretty wonky Tardis, but you know what? Jasmine LOVES and I mean LOVES her cake, and that is more than enough for me :)
