Today I became the mother of a 30 year old!!!! YIKES, how in the world did that happen? Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was holding my newborn babies, pushing my toddlers on the swing, playing play dough or walking them into their first day at school? How in the world do I have a 30 year old? And a 28 year old and a soon to be 25 year old. Girls, stop growing up!!!
Today our oldest turns 30! Birthdays are time to celebrate and also a time to reminisce (which is better than dwelling on the fact that I’m old enough to have a 30 year old).
Of course, this song brought tears to my eyes today, just as it did on her wedding day.
Kendyll, We love you so much and are so proud of the little girl you were and the woman you’ve become! We thank you for all the smiles, tears and tennis! You were adorable in your “board-shorts and high-ups.” We loved your red glasses and you telling us about “singing to the ward.” You were always a tough little girl, keeping up with and often beating the boys at basketball, tennis and of course, some mean roller hockey! We love that you went to Westmont and made some of the best girl friends a girl could ask for. We even love that you decided to stay in SB for “just one summer” and met the man of your dreams! We love watching you being a mom to our precious little grand-babies. It goes without saying how much we love them! I’m sorry you had to spend your birthday morning with a sick little girl, I wish I were there to hold her and give you a hug! We love you!! OXOX, Mom & Dad
