Card Carrying Teenager

happy 14 Lil Wicked

It’s official, Lil Wicked is a teenager. We have survived tweendom and are moving full throttle into sophistication. I knew we’d hit the milestone when she asked me to help pack up all her beanie babies, gone all of them. Oh Boy!

I wasn’t too sure about the whole Auntie thing fourteen years ago. I am extremely happy to report that Lil Wicked has been a real joy, the best first niece EVER!! Who else would put up and enjoy (for the most part) the antics of this Aunt? Lil Wicked, that’s who. I have enjoyed the young woman she has developed into and cannot wait to see what the future brings.

Join me in wishing Lil Wicked a very Happy Birthday!

I know what you mean. Watching my nephews grow and being a part of their lives is the next best thing to having my own. Now if only I could get my brother and SIL to have a niece for me!

We are proud of her also. She has become a swim / volley ball queen too. Time flies way too fast. BIL

That's adorable! I think so many parents forget to enjoy their children in the stage they are at, and embrace them that way. It seems like they all want their child to either hurry and grow up, or stay young forever.

I think it's amazing you are enjoying your niece at each stage =)

My nephew just became a teenager and has been practicing his sarcasm as of late. Little does he know that he is in the presence of a master, fifth dan black belt in sneer-fu.

Happy Birthday Lil Wicked. My nephew became a teenager this year too. Quite a lot of changes. He is suddenly taller than I am and filling out too. So strange to see him as a young man. Still so new inside his adult-looking body.

My Nephew is in college know. I wish I had been there when he was younger but I know what you mean.

I can't wait to see him when he gets married and has his first child.
