Somehow, someway, I have become the mother of a teenager.
Wasn't I just a teenager myself? Was it really that long ago that I wore armfuls of rubber bracelets ala Madonna & had big permed hair? Where are those Swatch watches & Flashdance-inspired sweatshirts? Ferris Bueller? Anyone? Anyone? Seriously? That was 25 years ago? Oh heaven help me!
It is official. My daughter is 13 today.

I made the two colorful banners of characters.
Lots of pictures for the walls.

Not sure if you are a Gleek, but this was the Glee food table (not to be confused with the real food table, of which I did not take a picture.)
We had Mercedes' tots
Lauren Zizes' Raisinettes
Sue Sylvester's Cheerios
Breadstix (The Glee Club's favorite restaurant)
And since no Glee episode would be complete without the Glee Club getting slushied, I made slushie cupcakes.
And cheesecake. She wanted cheesecake. Oh man. Look at it. Not a crack to be had! I think this might have been the first time I made a cheesecake without some sort of
My Glee-ful teenager, taken this morning, officially 13 years old.
She is amazing in so many ways. Can't imagine life without her.
(And...since I can't resist a weather cheap shot---13 years ago today, when she was born, it was a balmy 85 degrees. No lie. 85 degrees on March 31, 1998. Don't think we'll ever see that again.)
