Youíve finally reached that age
Where certain things arenít cool
Like hanging out with your Mother
Or wearing hand-me-downs to school

You have your own ideas on things
They donít always agree with mine
Itís hard to let you do it your way
But youíre handling things just fine

You still like to be the little one
When it comes time to getting things
Youíve out grown Barbieís and such
Now itís clothes, cdís and rings

The new hair cut that I called cute
Isnít cute, itís called ďin styleĒ
No matter what you call the thing
It made you precious all the while

The bell bottoms and hip hugger jeans
Make your daddy cringe with disgust
He doesnít understand the fads
But he buys them so you wonít fuss

Itís hard to believe you're growing up
Not long ago I held you in my arms
Now Iím watching you as a young lady
Develop wit, intelligence and charms

Remember one thing in the next few years
As we clash, fuss, fight and tangle
Iíll always love you, this you can beat
No matter how you look at it from any angle!!!

How well I remember those days and sometimes I even miss them but she is a woman now and has a daughter of her own. I hope she remembers what it was like when we clashed and fought and made up again. Very well written!

I'm not there yet. 3 yrs to go with my son. 4 for my eldest daughter. But I think we're already experiencing some of this. She has always had her own thought and ways. We already tangle. But no matter what, you always love them and make up. Great job!
