happy birthday

Today is my darling Dana’s birthday! She turned 13 today.

Isn’t she adorable?!! Sweet as can be, most of the time.

She’s also an official teenager. So that’s where the ‘most of the time’ comes in.

Man do I feel old. And she’s not even my oldest.

So I asked her this afternoon if she wanted to invite a friend over. Her response was surprising, even for me.

“I’d rather clean the house.”

What?!

Really?!

Is something wrong with her?

Oh wait – that’s the camera angle (thanks to CamWow).

No there’s nothing wrong with her. I love this girl! But I wanted to make sure.

So I asked her again and again if that’s what she really wanted to do on her birthday.  She assured me it was.

Okay then. I was so tired but I set my trusty timer and we started cleaning. The boys helped as well and soon the house was sparkly!

I asked Dana if she felt better and she said she did. Mission accomplished.

Happy Birthday Dana! I love you.

Enjoy your clean house.
