Jane is a teenager now

( Chat with me today! Click on button)

Jane turned 13 (A TEENAGER) on February 18th, the same day 
I felt bad that I wasn't as attentive as I usually am on birthdays because
I was busy preparing and setting up for the big party.
I told Jane I would make it up to her.  
Half of her birthday was good...I think, I hope.
The traditional birthday pancake breakfast was made atop with 
sprinkles, strawberry's and whipped cream.  
That afternoon, I picked up my newest teenager and Claire
 from school, and took them to lunch.
Then we found ourselves at the bakery.
It's weird how that happens.
Around our house, I make a birthday cake for the special boy or girl
on the Sunday following their birthday.
For Jane, I made a two-toned pink cake with light pink frosting. 
I realized around 10:00 that night after the cake was half-eaten,
that I hadn't taken the traditional photo under the "Happy Birthday" banner.
I then posed Jane under the banner in her PJ's with her cake.
Then she began to cry because 
she remembered she hadn't done her math homework.
I ushered her to bed with kisses and loves promising of a better day tomorrow.
Then I rolled up my sleeves and cleaned up our dinner mess.
Happy Birthday sweetheart Jane!
