(Such sweet and special friends)
My friend Angela and I took our 2 daughters (newly teenage daughters) and tried on make-up......not that either of them need any make up, but we wanted to celebrate their new titles as official teens and be a part in this most special experience. It was so much fun and special for us to do together! I never want her to think that growing up is a negative experience or that I want her to be young forever (even though part of my heart will always yearn for that). I don't want her to feel like she's disappointing me by growing up......she would be the type of girl to be sad that she was not pleasing her mommy by staying little forever. She is just so precious to me.
We took them to a place in Southlake called, "Let's Makeup"
It was such a fun and girly place!!
I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE IT
My little girl did really turn 13 and even though as a mother, I shutter to think of her growing older and leaving the nest (I want her to be with me forever), but she has a special mission given to her at her creation that I need to self-less-ly cooperate with.
We ended our evening with a girls dinner (at a seafood restaurant of course because it was a Friday during Lent) and a sleepover at our house, where the girls stayed up really late scrapbooking, visiting about girly stuff and laughing until they fell asleep!
GIRLFRIENDS ARE THE BEST
Dear Lord, please guide me as Madison's mother to help her grow into the beautiful and holy young woman that You have envisioned. She loves You so much and wants to be Your delight!
