Today is my first born's 14th birthday. 14. 14!
I lost my virginity at 14.
When I was 11 or 12 I was watching some show on TV...'they' were saying that the way to gauge if you'll be a good parent or not is tested by how successful you are at keeping a house plant alive. Apparently if you can keep a plant alive, you're very nurturing and such.
Even my artificial plant looks dead.
I related this factual information to her last night - and we both agreed she's pretty lucky to be alive after all this time.
Happy Birthday my sweet love!
