It's her bday today, and I've been requested to make my hazelnut and dark chocolate cupcakes with dark chocolate frosting (from a can, her favorite)...the things you do for your child.
I'm one of the lucky moms. The Child O' Mine (with help from family and friends) managed to graduate high school with a decent education and without any of the problems that plague teens today. No alcoholism, no drug dependency, no pregnancies planned or unplanned.
The CoM is smart, sharp mind, a crack shot with her mouthiness, and can make me hysterical with laughter in under 10 seconds. She's also very sweet, thoughtful, kind, generous, giving, and loving.
