tiny girl, but now she's a young woman
Well, my daughter's birthday is Saturday. She will be 19 now. On the day she was born, I woke up at 4:30. I had been dreaming that my best friend was my nurse and I was having contractions. Mike had worked nights, so I didn't wake him. I took a shower and called my mother, still unsure if I was having real contractions. She and my father came over to my house because they would need to baby sit my 1 year old son. My father convinced me to go ahead to the hospital, so I woke up Mike. Imagine his confusion when he saw that my parents were already there and I was ready to leave. We arrived at the hospital about 9:00 a.m., and she was born at 11:25 a.m.-nice, calm and easy. She has been calm and easy ever since. She loves music, plays the piano and clarinet...is an artist and a designer. She is in college and is getting an art degree but now also wants to go to hair design school. I think her 2 interests go together, don't you? She is beautiful, with dark skin and eyes and medium brown hair. She is quiet, very conservative, and has strong opinions. I have never known her to be swayed by peer pressure. I am proud of her. She has grown into a fine, level headed young lady and I love her!
