My Baby turns 12 today......having a rough time with it

Post by ChangingFaceDesigns on Sun Jul 31, 2011 12:30 am

I didn't think her turning 12 would affect me the way it has. I was prepared for feeling like this at 13 but not now. Feels like someone has started cutting the apron strings and forgot to tell me about it. Sighhhhhhh I wonder if my Mom was like this with me. I want my cake and eat it too. I want her to walk boldly and proudly in the knowledge of who she is and more importantly whose she is.......(belonging to GOD first and me 2nd) but.................

I'm not ready for her to venture off too far........How do you let them go and keep them close. Has anyone figured that part of it out yet????

Oh well I will put my game face on in the morning and celebrate her day as I should.

good job mommy! just hang in there, im sure you raised her right n ready. just let her know youll always be there for her one way or another. IMO
figuring out the balance is one of the secrets of parenting that no one has figured out yet.

It's rough when they grow up. Celebrate her achievements & be a great encourager to her life. PRAY FOR HER CONTINUALLY!!!!! This is probably my 1st & foremost that I do for my kids. I know I can't be there all the time, but God can. I also surround my kids w/ good influences in their life & keep them active(not busy, but active in their interests). Idle hands will find things to do(and they may not be the best things). I know your daughter's an awesome & wonderful girl w/ an amazing mom! Enjoy the tween & teen years, they're pretty awesome!

Awww 12 is a monumental birthday in my opinion. Once they are 12, they are just so.... BIG. Some people think 13 is the biggie (first year of teens) but I see 12 as the big one. Legal to sit in the front seat, legal to be left home alone... my oldest is 11, I don't look forward to 12.

Happy Birthday to your big little one. How are you holding up today?

Psalm I stay in prayer over her, and I have also taught her to stay in prayer for herself and to keep the word of GOD on her tongue at all times ready to do battle and cast down those things that would serve to do her harm or impede her progress in anyway.

I am fairing better today more tired than anything. I took her and her friends to the County Fair yesterday. got them all wrist bands so tey could ride all day, they ate what they wanted and we saw the circus acts, they loved the pig races, and riding the horses. After which we had homemaade brownies and ice cream as she didn't want a cake. Then she had 2 of her friends out of the group sleep over and we all went to breakfast this morning, and took them home.

The funny thing is I think alot of what I was and am feeling is because she is a girl. My son Joel turns 13 on the 27th of this month and I am actually happy for him reaching that teen milestone and coming into his own as a young man. Go figure right???

happy birthday!!!! she is growing up! and I am sure you are an awesome Mommy. She will learn from the best....you!

Little girls are so much harder to let go.

This is the time when you can really start acting like goofballs together.
