I was just curious how everyone reacted when you became the mother of a teenager? My daughter turned 13 this week and out of nowhere the morning of her birthday, I saw a picture of her when she was 3 and started bawling. At first I wasn't really sure why I was crying. Then I felt like I was going into a panic mode that she is growing up and I will never have those younger years back. My poor husband was so worried because of my reaction being very out of character for me. I was 19 when I had her and began to think I was so young did I take full advantage of enjoying all of the little things early on. I did not have the greatest relationship with my mother so I always strived to give her what I didn't have. I never really second guessed anything before so I am not sure why I am doing it now. Has anyone else ever gone through this?
