Weird & Wonderful

I've been telling you about my ever maturing and working teenager. Well, her best friend has a car (a Jeep, I think) and she came to pick her up today so they could run errands. These weren't errands that I and the other mom requested; these were their own errands and they asked each of us if we needed anything.

Amber left looking all cute and grown up and came back loaded down with bags of purchases. They'd been to Barnes and Noble (her friend needed some books for assignments for the upcoming year), Kroger (Amber bought some fruits and healthy drinks for a cleansing she's doing), Wal-Mart (the other day when Amber and I were there we spotted a small Crock-Pot for about $9 that she bought for COLLEGE! and she got some film developed) and I think there were a couple of other things they did.

It's wonderful seeing her independent and responsible; it's also a little weird. I wonder if my mom had the same feelings when she saw me come in carrying my purchases. I remember getting foods that I like or stopping to get something for dinner, which Amber did today. She sent me a text message asking me what I had in mind for dinner. I thought that was so cool and responsible.

What an amazing young woman she is turning out to be. And, I must say, as I've watched her best friend over the years: I am quite impressed with her as well. They are a couple of great gals. :-)

That's Amber's best friend. They've been friends since middle school -- 6th grade, I think. She's a nice young lady and I am happy that Amber has found such a good friend to share things with and hang out with. It's like having another teen-aged daughter (she even calls me mom).

And, there she is, the young lady of the family.



  1. Wow you have the right to be very proud of your daughter.

  2. It's always weird to watch them grow...We've mixed up feelings...It's a blessing to see that they're becoming responsible and grown individuals but it's sad to see that they don't need us as much as they do when they're small...
    It's hard with the boys, but I can tell it's much harder when it comes to girls,right?!
    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  3. What a wonderful young lady your daughter is. I'm sure she knows how proud you are of her. Give her a hug for me okay for being such a great daughter to my wonderful friend! :o)

  4. Hey Petula

    Every time I see her pic I think my gosh she is so pretty and she looks so much like you. You are very blessed to have a great girl! Congrads on a job well done.

  5. Your daughter sounds like she's got a great head on her shoulders and a big heart :) I bet it IS strange seeing her starting to make adult decisions but it's also so cool that she's got the foresight to ask if you need anything from the store :D

  6. Sounds like you did an amazing job raising her! :-) Thanks so much for dropping by and commenting :-)

  7. That's great they are so responsible!!! You don't find that in a lot of teens today. I can only hope my girls grow up to be great just like yours!

  8. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! You have a lovely daughter, I have an 8 year old daughter and with the way time flies she will be a teenager before I know it. A tube bead is just a tube made with little seed beads woven together. I have just started doing this and it is very fiddly, I need lots of practice.

  9. AMber is cute! I like her hair colour.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
