Friday 5: What I love About Having a Teenage Daughter

Okay, having a teen is rough.  Especially when you acquired one at 14!  I love my daughter, and the many daughters I couldn’t bring home with me.  Sometimes I think I’m gonna go insane though, so I thought I would give us all a reminder to look at the little things.  *Will be referencing the post when it’s NOT so good!*  LOL

  1. She sings silly songs while doing chores.  Even if she has no music to sing to or doesn’t know the words!
  2. She knows just when I need a hug.  Always.
  3. The sound of her laughter echoing through our house.  Music to my ears!
  4. She often offers me a perspective I hadn’t thought of on things.  Like my reaction to rude people or other things that may annoy me.  Her views aren’t yet tainted by cynicism!
  5. The lessons I learn from her.  Though I may be on a mission to teach her, often I find the roles reversed.
