wordful wednesday - yesterday i became the mother of a daughter entering her 3rd decade

and yeah - we pretty much ALL wrote smart-alecky things in her card about not being a teenager anymore!

they went kinda like this:

"ok, i don't know if you know this, but 20 is a REALLY scary number to be writing..."


"half way to 40...or 10 again..."


[from me]

"i look WAY too young to have a 20 year old..."


we love you!!!

for more wordful wednesday, visit angie over @ seven clown circus

Haha.. Oh how I remember all the witty things that were wrote in my 20th card (It was only last year!) ..
I wonder what my family will come up with for my 21st!

Happy Birthday to your daughter!


cat said...

Oh you look WAY too young to be the mom of a 20 year old! Congratulations.

Muthering Heights said...

LOL, she looks THRILLED with the comments!

Melinda said...

Happy Birthday miss 20. Now that is how we will see her referred to. You are young looking! She could be your sister now *wink* are only as old as you feel!

Tammy Howard said...

Happy birthday to her! (and you totally don't look old enough to be the parent of a 20 y/o!)

Octamom said...

Happy bday! Hope she didn't find it too painful! ;o)


Sass E-mum said...

You do it's true!

I remember feeling so smart when I was 20. I had ALL the answers.

I don't get that feeling on birthdays any more. What happened?!

Elaine A. said...

Well, you're definitely right about that last one! You definitely look too young!

Happy Birthday to your young lady! :)

Happy Birthday Ms 20! You barely look a day older than 19!

That is great! And you DO look too young to have a 20 year old! My birthday is coming up and my husband keeps giving me a hard time. Lucky for me he's 7 years older so I always have a smart alek comment to shoot back at him. :D

Kristi Smith said...

Happy Birthday Miss. 20! It is all downhill from there. lol

Debbie in Nashville said...

Happy Birthday to her!

angie said...

Happy Birthday to her. It's amazing how much older "entering her 3rd decade" sounds than 20! :)

Cecily R said...

HEE HEE! I love that you have such a great, fun relationship with your kids!

And you DO look way too young to have a 20 year old!

T~T said...

I agree - you do look way too young to have a 20 year old!

Honey Mommy said...

Wow. That means I am entering my fourth decade. Yuck! That makes it sound even older than it really is!

the mama bird diaries said...

I'd like to be half way to 40 again.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter.
