Eighteen

When did this.....


Turn into this?


And where did those 18 years go?!!! Dad and I have taken the day off work to spend the day with her, but she has been whisked off to Alton Towers by the new boyfriend, and she's off out on the town tonight! We had a family and friends party at the weekend which she insisted on having at home (as I apparantly throw a great party!) I'm now broke and exhausted (but it was a good party!).

Happy 18th birthday to the Dancing Queen! I often ask myself the same sort of question but in my case I'm wondering where the last 37 years went!!

She has grown from a wee princess into a beauty. How proud you must be, but i understand the tinge of sadness. My 'baby' girl will be 39 on Sunday!! I can't believe I have a child that age. i barely feel that myself!

Happy birthday dancing queen!! I feel like I was only 18 the other day but have just realised it was 9 years ago. Damn!

Hope she had a lovely time at Alton Towers and her party with friends went well - man I got sooooo drunk when I went out for my 18th!

What a pretty daughter you have! And sounds like a good party! Happy Birthday to her!

It was my younger grandson's 18th Birthday last month - and he had a great party too!

My generation had to wait until 21 for the celebrations!

Where do the years go? She is beautiful and obviously a credit to you. You did a good job Mum!

What darling pictures! So glad you had a lovely (if tiring) birthday for her. My little one is just almost two, and my Mama keeps warning me not to close my eyes - because in just a blink he'll be grown.
