I had NO idea!

A few years after the birth of my second son, I decided it would be a great idea to try for a daughter.
It took almost four years- after I convinced my husband that trying for a girl was a good idea - to get her here.
That journey is a post on it's own, and not the topic of today's thoughts, but today I am thinking, "I had no idea!" I had no idea how it would feel to have a daughter.
When she was born, I cried. And I would look at her and cry again. I simply couldn't believe that she was really mine. And I was certain she was a princess. By the time she was 3 years old, she was convinced of it too. My husband and I had a little "unspoiling" to do. I found this difficult, because after all, she really was a princess. Shhh.
Well, she is 16 now, and even though "Fairytale" is not really the name of where we live, it felt that way last weekend as our daughter (aka Princess) went to her first prom.













I really had no idea how it would feel.
She is growing up.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I miss those prom days...praying for weddings... :o) And with humble training they should be treated as queens in waiting...until that grand day when they become the wife/queen of some amazing man.
