UGH...my daughter Goddess will be 12 next week. It is killing me. Her getting older means I am also getting older but I find it hard because she is my baby. She is also the age I was when my mom passed away. She is the age I was when my life was falling apart and huge changes were being made that I had no control over just like this moment. She is going to be 12 there are no ifs ands or buts about it.
