For what it's worth, I think this sixteen year old daughter of mine is pretty fantastic. She turned sixteen in the middle of a LOT of chaos this year; (wasn't she just turning eleven?!?) remodeling a house, moving a daughter across the country to college, and gracefully handling a terrible case of pneumonia that lasted more than two weeks.
She just strapped on her birthday sombrero and we fiesta'd.
Happy Birthday Rooney!
(more on granting her birthday wish in a future post)
You're sweet AND sixteen.
