Happy 13th Birthday Jordan Rylie June 4th 2001!

Picture 010

don’t ask…I’m sure there was a reason!

I am not quite sure how you went from this below….to that above? It blows my mind just thinking about it! Thirteen years ago today you changed my life. My family was complete with a perfect boy and now a beautiful baby girl. The Million Dollar Family! I kept the ‘girl’ part a secret, but finally I got to share YOU with the world! My GIRL!

I am so very proud of who you are! You have such a beautiful soul. You have touched the lives of so many in such a short amount of time! Your character is unique, unusual even, for your age. I don’t think this is your first BBQ. You seamlessly navigate yourself through the winding roads of life without a worry in the world. You are smart and witty and have a sense of self that is unafraid to explore what this magical life has to offer! You simply get it! If you would just get the clean your room part that would be a bonus! (I’m not holding my breath!) You have such purpose and share your natural instinct with those around you. You have compassion that bubbles over and empathy that comes from deep within. Your moral fibre and family values are still intact, lets keep it that way! 😉

ImageI know being a teenager is not going to be easy, it never is, but I know that you will master this challenge with a happy heart and colourful courageous spirit! You go gurl! Keep me posted, I am just down the hall in the tidy room! I am right here 24/7 if you need some awesome parenting 101 advice, I’m going pro next year! I can guide you part way but you’re going to have to help me here, there is no ‘Dummies on Teenagers’ book that I am aware of, so just cut me some slack now and then. Remember, I am also hormonal so it’s a double whammy for us chicksters! Let’s get this party started!

Always keep in mind Music helps soothe the soul, (can extent your run by at least 2K if you crank it) and a good piece of chocolate is so under rated! I have a hidden stash if your moody blues need a boost.

I feel blessed that you chose me to be your Mom. I will forever be grateful that you came into my life. I am right here watching you blossom into a gorgeous young lady…I use the term lady loosely knowing who you are! You are definitely not shy! Your sense of humour catches me off guard every single day! That alone makes any split second hormonal outburst worth it in my eyes. If you could just stagger yours between mine that would be helpful.

Your quirky personality makes me gut laugh every single day! You are your own person indeed! Love that about you! A true leader!

Jordan, Happy Birthday! I love you with all of my heart and wish for you the world and everything in it! Now go makes some more waves!

Mom ((((smile)))) xoxoxoxoxo

  1. I love this girl so much! No more duck face though!! Ha ha! Hasn’t she been a teenager for about 4 years already? Yep, you timed that right Tracy, hormonal teenager living with hormonal menopausal mom. Perfect combo. 🙂 But its Jo, so it will all be good. Nobody can make me laugh like that girl! Such a kind heart and boy can she lettem rip! And she’s gorgeous to boot. I sure hope she is still into running and jumping off the dock. It’s shiny and new and waiting for her. Can’t wait to see you all! Wishing our girl (yes, John and I have claimed her too) the best, happiest birthday!!!

    • I just wanted to say and I know it will be debatable for some but I haven’t been really hormonal as of yet…lol either has Jordan really, so far so good!
      We can hardly wait to see you guys too and I can’t wait to thunder down the dock and jump in! Hope the lake is up! Bahahaha I just ran so I will be ripped in about 3-4 weeks and then look out! Miss you all! xoxoxoxo
