Well that's it. I'm just getting older and older and older. My nephew is in college, and my "Little Miss" turns 18 today. Eighteen!!!
I can't believe my niece is 18. It's just so incredibly bittersweet to me.
Down the rabbit hole in Alice's Wonderland, I imagine. It really feels like only yesterday she was that 3-year old little girl obsessed with playing dress up and wanting us to build one of my special tents in the living room. We used to put their little kid's table inside while we ate junk food and watched Peter Pan.
Today would have also been my Grandma's birthday. We seem to share a lot of birthdays in this family.
Actually, my niece shares her birthday with my Grandma (who passed away before my nephew was born) as well as her Grandma on her father's side. Even my nephew shares his birthday with my Dad, which also happens to be Texas Independence Day.
