Loose Threads and Other Random Thoughts

Mother and Daughter
1.  That’s me with Miss 17.  I’m so incredibly proud of her.  I’m also slowly but surely preparing myself to let go as she prepares to go to college.  I will not cry.  On Friday, she and I hung out and did a bit of shopping, eating and talking.  Seeing my daughter grow from a little bean to a young lady has been the most amazing trip.  I’m one of those blessed moms who hasn’t had to go through all the problems that I caused my mother with her teen daughter.  That’s not to say we haven’t had our issues (at 12 she started to lose her mind, at 13 she lost it completely, but at 14 I helped her find it again, since then we’ve been pretty cool)…
Anyway, did you notice her hair?  I did that last weekend.  Yep, I shaved my daughter’s head.  That’s what moms are for, right?

2.  Last week I taught myself how to crochet a  headband, so I decided to try to be a bit more creative and make another one using ribbon, elastic bands and crocheted flowers, so Miss 17 and I hit up the craft store.  Of course, I’ll post pictures of the finished product.  If it’s acceptably cute.

How was your weekend?
