Happy Birthday Beth!

BethToday was Beth's birthday. She turned 12 today which means she is only one year away from being a teenager!!! Accepting that I have a daughter who is practically a teenager is not easy expecially when it is so easy to remember when she was small enough to hold on my forearm. I think that is one of the reasons that it is hard for parents to accept their children growing up... because we remember them as being so little as if it was yesterday.

Anyway, Beth got the two things that she really wanted, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Season 1 Box Set and Rollercoaster Tycoon 3. Plus we had KFC for dinner and Carvel cake for dessert, both of which are Beth's favorites. Everything was perfect except that I found out that Beth's computer doesn't have the right graphics card to run Roller Coaster Tycoon so I had to order an upgrade from Dell. Anyway, all we will be well when the new card arrives.

So, Happy Birthday Beth! You are the best daughter any father could ask for.

I'm sure she had a good day. If you think that's hard wait till she goes off to Uni and then when you walk her up the aisle.

Thanks for the message of condolence.

Happy Birthday, Beth! My Sam turns 8 in about a week, and my head is spinning at that news. I know what you mean.
I also understand the computer woes, he won't touch the PIII/800 in his room, he thinks he has rights to this one. . .
I hope it was a great day.
