Happy Birthday Victoria

It's hard to believe that my oldest child is 17 today, I have no idea how that time flew by so quickly and as she so eloquently put it this morning, I have just one year left to tell her what to do.

Happy birthday Victoria, doesn't matter that you're no longer that little girl who used to sit on my lap as we read many books together, or used to get so excited when we'd go to the ice cream shop after school, or got jealous that I didn't play Barbies as much when your baby brother came along and for which you still remind me of, or the little girl that would play in the shops in England w/ Great Grand-Father, running through the aisles making silly squawking noises, or the little girl that screamed at me in the store after I popped your hand for touching expensive crystal for the 2nd time after being told "No", or the sassy 7 y/o who charged boys to come look at the dead cat we had in our freezer, (hermetically sealed for those wondering WTH?) that had had an autopsy, you called it 'Frankenstein Cat'.
I will always love you to the ends of the earth. I'm a proud Momma, you have grown into a beautiful young woman, one who will drive me insane with frustration one minute and will have me on the verge of tears the next as I see how incredibly hard you work to gain strength back into your leg.
You've had a rough year, but you've done it with grace (for the most part)Your Dad and I are extremely proud of you. We wish you nothing but happiness, success, and good health.
We love you to the moon and back xoxoxo

Thanks Angie.
She's had a good day and is off to the Coach Outlet tomorrow, so she's a happy girl.
