It's happened. Everyone said it would but I didn't believe them. I didn't think it was possible but it seems, I was wrong.
Mo seems to be growing up! I know, I'm a little stunned too, and hoping I'm not speaking too soon but since she turned 17 there is something decidedly different about her.
First of all, her sense of humor has hit warp drive. The kid keeps me laughing, and not in a little kid I'm going to tell you a poop joke way- in an adult, sarcastic way- she is hysterical!
And, fasten your seat belts- she has started picking up after herself. Her room still looks like the city dump but the rest of the house she picks up! She and V even dyed their hair in the main bath and I didn't need to gut it to get rid of the stains.
This is a wonderful time. We are able to talk about things instead of her sulking and thinking I'm the meanest mom in the world. And, she actually likes the guy I'm dating. As much as I'm loving this time, I still miss this face, not the 80's hair but that perfect little face.
This is the last year of my baby's childhood and although I don't consider myself to be a Mommy blogger- Mo is much too old for that, I think for the next ten months you are going to be reading a lot of " When Mo was....." It's been a glorious ride and I wouldn't trade one minute of it!
