And Then She Was Fifteen



Natalie was born 15 years ago and was pretty pissed off about it. 



She was a noisy baby. She cried a ton. She was offended when we set her down. She had a long list of things she did not like. Her car seat was one of those things. The toys hanging from the handle upset her. But if we removed them, that made her screech too. 


However, as she grew, she became less whiney. Her love for costumes became apparent. 



She also adored all things Disney. Rapunzel is her favorite Princess, followed by Merida. 




She also enjoys watching Enchanted, which is where this dress is inspired from. If you've never seen Enchanted, it's about Giselle who is banished to Earth by an Evil Queen and realizes everyone isn't as happy as she is. 





I love that Natalie still dresses up.  I hope she always does.




Currently she's a Freshman in High School. Her sport is theatre. She loves transforming into other characters and obviously her favorite thing is the different costumes.



She can be stubborn. She laughs at inappropriate times like her mother. She loves to shop. As soon as she gets money, it's basically spent. She has a fantastic sense of humor. 




She understands makeup and fashion. I do not. But she puts together the coolest outfits.




Today she is fifteen. And I know I have to slowly let her go. This is difficult for me. I have let her hang out with friends without supervision. I worry. Constantly. But I have to believe that the lessons I've taught her over the years have stuck. I have to believe that she'll make the right decisions when adults aren't around. 




Happy 15th Birthday, Natalie! I hope you always have that amazing imagination.
