In a couple of days we will have a teenager in the house :-)
Stage one in the celebrations today as my Mum and Dad very kindly hosted a family get together.
The most delicious roast beef and all the trimmings and Milly was in heaven. Her first mouthful of yorkshire pudding ( my Mum does do the best Sunday dinner ever! ) she sighed and said
" Mmmm...... content" :-)
Many roasties later she was a very happy and very full bunny :-)
A visit to see my Sister and Brother in laws lovely new home and then back home to flop :-)
Although I am slightly apprehensive - because teenage hood is often spoken about in such negative terms - I am also quite excited about this part of our journey.
I am not saying it won't be challenging - we have seen changes emotionally and very obvious physical growth - over the last few months and it is fair to say that some of them are hard to deal with - for Milly as well as us!
I believe that if we continue to talk, stay patient, treat each other with respect and try to find ways to stay connected, we will find our way through.
Sounds easy right ;-)))
