I mean I do feel horribly old as my first baby turns 17 today! Last year on her birthday, I wrote this post and it's all still true.
My new favorite thing going in to her 17th year is that we are 99% sure she will be gainfully employed this summer! No more free-loader! Just kidding, she will totally still mooch off of us for a long while. Sigh.
This is part of her gift:
And yes, those might be lottery tickets. Shhh...
Her other gift is getting her car detailed. I mean, what teenager doesn't dream of car detailing as a gift? Actually, she's pretty excited. Her third gift didn't ship in time. I'm awesome like that. She is celebrating with friends tonight by having a bonfire in our back yard. Unless it's super windy...then I will shove a bunch of money at them and send them to a movie or something. Not that I'm praying for wind or anything. ;-) Just kidding, these friends of hers are amazing.
So, here is what 17 looks like at our house...
|Pretty exciting, huh? I'm sure that melted wax in the sausage patty was delicious!|
|17...get it? This definitely earned me an eye roll.|
Happy 17, Peyton Grace!
