I'm out here fishing with Mr. Big. Well, technically he and Mr. C are fishing, I'm just observing (I'm on my phone so please excuse any typos or errors)
While on the bridge there was a couple of teenagers...and I mean an actual couple not just two boys or two girls or a boy and a girl that could have been friends or siblings.
They couldn't have been more than 14.
It seemed like they were on vacation together but there was only one set of parents.
When I was growing up around the same age that was normal. Now as a parent I would freak if any of my kids would ask if their boyfriend/girlfriend could come away with us.
Then I realized that Princess is 11. She'll be 12 in a few months.
I had my first kiss when I was 12!!!!
And not the peck on the cheeck kind but the spin the bottle behind the raquet ball court during summer intercession in middle school cork screw curl your toes kind of kiss.
I'm freaking out here!!
How did time fly by so fast?
When did my baby who was so tiny in my arms grow up so quickly?
I can't believe it already.
I remember my mind set at age 12 and boy do I hope my daughter is nothing like me!!
I wonder what my first kiss partner would say right now if it was his daughter.
I should ask him in a few years...his little girl hasn't started kindergarten yet...no need to freak him out yet.
Yes, we are still friends, even after so many years.
As far as Princess goes, I know she is growing up and she is very smart, especially about personal space and sticking up for herself. I hope she keeps it up and is careful about who she chooses to give her first kiss to.
Not that I regret my first kiss...quite the opposite. Even though it was over spin the bottle he was nothing but a sweetheart. We had the best friendship that I can remember and even after many years passing between communication we pick up our conversations like no time has passed.
But people aren't always that lucky.
I hope Princess is though. I hope all my kids are.
But until then, do you think Amazon sells time machines or anti-growing-up bubbles?
