As you know, 52Photos Blog is going to Instagram. I am spending some time on it every day but for the life of me, I have no idea how to work it. It is just one of those things that bites my butt. I have always been able to just download a program and play with it and figure it out. But this Instagram is not coming to me. We shall see, maybe someone knows of a tutorial or something.
Bella chose an interesting topic for Week 45. And I immediately knew what I would choose.

I could not imagine having kids, but now I can't imagine not having her. I am glad she was a girl and not a boy, even though we had major clashes when she was a teenager.

After several heated exchanges where we tried calmly to let her know we did not approve, she stormed off......sure we were ruining her life.
At some point I told her that when she was a mother she would protect her daughter in the same way. She (not so politely) informed me that she would be a wonderfully understanding mother and let her daughter go to the sleep-in.
I called 4 or 5 of her friend's mothers and confirmed that they were not letting their daughters sleep with their boyfriends en masse. She was not happy. And I am sure all the parties to the party were not happy.
Today, I look at her and her husband and smile. I know them well enough to know they would both be fiercely protective of their children.
Those kids would NOT be going to co-ed parties!
She is smart. She is beautiful. She is savvy and she is a hard worker. What else could you possibly want for your child to become?
Her life could have gone many ways, I am so glad she chose this one. We are so proud to be her parents.
