    She faked having to go to the bathroom during a critical Harry Potter scene because she was scared.
    I was probably more mad about that than a grown woman should be.
  2. β€’
    She was partially named after my dad.
    Who died before she was born.
  3. β€’
    I thought I was going to be accused of awful things when she started screaming "NO!! NO!! NOOOO!!" at me when she was little and I was helping her in a public bathroom stall.
    I asked her to stop growing up and stay little. She disagreed. Loudly.
  4. β€’
    We used to have so many game nights!!
  5. β€’
    And hang out at camp.
  6. β€’
    I love that she's about the same age as my stepson.
    It was a blast with all of us when everyone was younger.
  7. β€’
    She's super smart. And loves rocks.
  8. β€’
    She's more adventurous and brave than me. She studied in France for a semester.
    I would definitely have not done that. Too scared and shy when I was younger.
  9. β€’
    She surprised is the other day at he playground.
    I πŸ’• that.
  10. β€’
    Sometimes I forget she's an adult.
    But as of today, she's old enough to drink. Legally. 🍷🍸🍻🍺🍾🍹
