My youngest turns 12 today. In our culture the sixteen and twenty-first birthdays are the big blowout events. She has always been an old soul, wiser than her years. Here she is when she was much younger. Little Miss Attitude.
In my family we look like each others kids. I look and act just like my Mommie's oldest sister. Her oldest sister's daughter looks like my Mommie had her. My daughter Syeda looks and acts just like my sister that is my immediate junior. There are times as my daughter has grown its like watching Vanessa grow up all over again. Amazing.
