Oops...I kinda forgot...

I seem to have neglected to mention one slightly important fact yesterday... I am now the proud parent of a teenager. [shivers] That's right, yesterday was Munchkin's 13th birthday:-)

When I think back on the days in the summer of 2005 when I was dealing with my mother's health, Munchkin's custody situation and evaluating my options, I can specifically remember thinking "What the fuck would I do when she is a teenager?" Now that the day is here, it doesn't seem like such a big deal at all. Of course, I was probably thinking more about when she is 15-17 than 13, but the dramatic rollover into her teen years certainly makes me reflect on all of it. Could she still turn into a terror? Sure. But I think I have learned a lot about myself, and about the people that I can rely on...and I am pretty sure I will be able to deal with it. I hope:-P

What better way to celebrate a birthday than chicken fingers? This was my first chicken finger Thursday in three weeks, so I had some honey-mustard catching up to do. It was actually sort of a mini-birthday party with four of her friends (we are having a real party for her next weekend). Smoking Hot Roommate and Big Sis came by with some gifts, balloons, flowers and the cake, and The Boy brought her flowers, too. Two of my friends dropped in, too. Honestly, I think that her friends are kinda jealous of her cool, hip older friends;-).

Tonight is the much-anticipated pizza date, which has grown into a quadruple date. We will leave Munchkin alone to sit with the new boyfriend by themselves, though...all six of the rest of us might be a little overwhelming for the little bugger. Then Saturday is spa day! I am very much looking forward to that!!!

I really wanted to get a massage and a facial while I was in Las Vegas, but I never had the free time to do it. But I got the idea in my head, so now I just desperately need to go through with it. So, Munchkin, SHR and I have appointments tomorrow afternoon, which should be just heavenly...me very excited!

And...um...I guess that is about it. The rest of the weekend is not real busy. The Boy and I have most of Saturday night to ourselves while Munchkin is at her party, and then Sunday is kinda open at this point. I think Papa Bear wants to have dinner Sunday, but that is about it. Well, except for hearing about BFFg's date:-D.

Maybe I will even get the chance to blog this weekend! It's been a while for that...

She couldn't be any worse than you were at 13... of course, she could be to make you pay for your past transgressions. Or, we'll leave that up to YOUR KIDS! :P

A teenage...It's a pretty big milestone! Have a great weekend! I'm so jealous of the spa day tomorrow. I'm hoping that I'll have something like that for my birthday.
