a fun way of seeing your child grow…

Puberty does a number on our children.  i would recommend to all parents…enjoy them (even when they are annoying us with babble about a video game or something)  before puberty makes them no longer yours. I mean, they would prefer hanging out with friends to being with old me, i mean, us. 🙂 Yesterday, she turned 14…how the hell did that happen?!

      You know…when i started to collect photos of my daughter growing up, the changes were incredible between ages 11-12. I think it is human nature to believe things will always remain the same– b/c it feels like we ourselves seldom change. I mean, gosh i’m 45 years old according to my birth certificate, but i’m still 26 inside. Perhaps, it is also a way to keep us from going crazy. Thank you, Jane. ~amy

  6. How well I remember that shift. One day my daughter just appeared with the figure of a woman. Wow. Now I am an old woman and she is a middle aged woman and we are best friends.

      Hi tish! Thank you so much. My daughter is thought the pictures were cool too. She thought it was amazing how she went from being a child to a woman in a year–according to the photos. ~amy
