My little woman turns 13 today. I hope that I can get my car down the driveway so that I can bring her home. I want to bake her chocolate cake and homemade pizza (in that order). I want to tell her that I like her and love her and that when I was her age, I wanted to be just like her.

And that she can steal all the clothes from me she wants if she promises to stay 13 forever.

    For Morgan,an Irish Blessing

    Walls for the wind
    And a roof for the rain,
    And drinks beside the fire.
    Laughter to cheer you
    And those you love near you,
    And all that your heart may desire!

  5. Bee says:

    Awwwww! What terrific things to say to her. I hope she has a happy day and that you get to spend it with her.

  6. Snapper says:

  20. Traci Best says:

    Oh I am right there with ya! My twins turned eight earlier this month and I almost didn’t make it through the day! The day before their birthday I kept saying…this is it. Seven is over. This is your very last day of seven! :no: The short one is coming down the home stretch of six and will be seven in April. How does the time go so fast? Wern’t they just toddlers yesterday?

    Thirteen! I may have to be institutionalized when that happens!

    I hope the driveway cooperates! Happy Birthday Princess!

    Great people were born on this day. My wonderful Grandpa would be 111 today! He was an excepional man…I’m sure the same characteristics follow your dear Princess.

    Blessings from Ohio…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MORGAN! Enjoy that cake & pizza!

  26. coffeefrappe says:

    Happy Birthday to You Princess Morgan! Hope 13 is your best year yet!

    (Suzanne, my son just turned 13 in November. That means we were gestating mostly at the same time! Prego sisters! :hug: At 6’2″ and 220 lbs he doesn’t steal my clothes, but sometimes, I steal his! Especially his jackets when I am in a big hurry.)

  27. Joanna Wilcox says:

    Suzaane, I don’t comment often but wanted to let you know that I look forward to reading your blog each day. I’ve got your sourdough starter sitting in the microwave, day 4, it’s smelling ripe. Thanks so much for your blog, I really appreciate it.

  28. LinMN says:

    Have a very happy 13th birthday, “Princess”!!! Hope it’s the greatest year yet!I found this for just you. Consider it a gift! ha ha!

    PS :hungry: Be sure to eat the cake *before* the pizza. That’s how it’s done. 😉

    (Hey Suzanne, you’re now the proud mother of ALL teenagers! How does that feel? Brave, not old, I’m hoping.)

  29. Nancy says:

    Happy Birthday Princess! Best of luck bringing her home today.

  30. Abiga/karen says:

    Happy Birthday Morgan from central Illinois from the Cummings and Brown families. Praying you, Suzanne, can get through to get her and celebrate together. :sun: My daughters are now 31 and 23and my granddaughters are 4, 3, 8 months and 5 months and I love them all dearly.Blessings.

    Happy Birthday Morgan! :purpleflower:

  32. mirela says:

    Happy Birthday, Princess! And you know what? If I had a daughter, I would have named her Morgan. Such a beautiful name, as beautiful as you are!

  33. Jeannie in OKC says:

    What an unusual mom you are, to want your daughter to stay 13 years old! Thirteen is a challenging year for all family members. Still, I love thirteen year olds. I taught middle school for many years, and it was great fun as well as difficult.

    Just want to say, though, a daughter grows more precious each year. My little girl will be 35 this year, and I adore her.

  35. Linda says:

    Happy Birthday Morgan. Wishing you luck on your drive to get her Suzanne. I know you will make it. They grow up so fast.

  36. Tori Lennox says:

    I can’t believe Morgan is 13!!! Surely it was only a couple of years ago she was born???

    Happy birthday, Morgan!!!

  37. Donna says:

    Happy Birthday Morgen! :happyflower: I hope you get that chocolate cake…I am baking a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting – chocolate BUTTERCREAM frosting! Come on over and have a piece! I’ll put a candle on it for you!

    13 wow…you are such a sweet wonderful daughter and you are the best present your mom could ever wish for! I hope your day is as beautiful as you are! :heart:

  38. Egghead says:

    Oh Happy Birthday to your princess, Morgan. I remember 13….finally a teenager. :chicken:
