I have a teenager in the house

So today is my eldest child's birthday you have have guessed from the pictures she's turned 13 years old.  I'm running to hide.  I feel quite emotional today probably as she's a teenager and it's gone so fast.

What can I say, you don't know what to expect when you have a child, you have so many thoughts in your mind what it's going to be like but in real life when you have your own it's madness.  Myself and Liberty's father were not together at birth and have never been since, and she doesn't see him now, but this is her choice and I don't stand in her way, she's explained why and I accept that.  She's very loved and a grounded lovely young girl (so far) so why should this be spoilt.
You also may have guessed I've named my blog after her and my Youtube channel, it's something and a name I'm never going to bore of.  I really struggled naming her I couldn't decide what to call her, I wrote a selection of names down on the white board in my work and there was about twenty, and when I read them every day the ones that bored me I scribbled out and then I finally decided on Liberty Nicole. I think it's probably one of those names people either like or don't, but most importantly I do and she does and she really suits it to.

All I can say is these thirteen years have flown, and I can't believe it, I'm quite worried in that she's a bit too much like me, she said yesterday if I get any birthday money can I go into town can I chose a Mac concealer to cover my spots as they have amazing skin tone choices:::: what have I created ha ha. 

I just pray that in the next few years she continues to be nice, and do well in school, and stay a lovely girl.
