Life in Loud week 16

She's the middle child. She looks more like me but has her dad's mastermind and adventuring spirit. She turns 13 this month.  As her mother, I have the challenge of keeping her safe while letting her soar. It's not always easy. We don't always agree. Recently, as I was leaving to go clothes shopping for her Christmas gift she said, "Mom, whatever you like pick the opposite for me." What do you do with that kind of directive?? I'm proud to say she knows her own mind and lives with the confidence I want for her. Watch out world, this one's a mover and a shaker.
