My Baby Has Grown!

Yesterday was a big day for Baby. It was her 13th birthday and as she says, she is now officially a teenager. She is so excited! I’m happy for her, but I'm  also aware that time is running out. Before long, Baby will be an adult and ready to take on the world, and my parenting (however remote) won’t be needed so much.

The day was also good in terms of work. I spent most of it researching and drafting the 4 short articles that are due today, so today I need only do minor editing and proof-reading before I submit them. I also landed another assignment to write two articles for a monthly newsletter on marketing and advertising. It's a monthly gig, and the agreement will last for the next four months. I’ve written one article for the client before, and she liked it so much she assigned me two more. It was a confidence booster to hear her rave about the article I previously submitted.The deadline of late June was also attractive - gives me time to research the pieces and to write.  I hope more work comes from that quarter.

I also won a $15 Amazon gift card, which I'm going to use to buy an ebook I've been keeping an eye on for a while. Lovely day, all in all:-)
So, how are you doing? What's new in your life?

Congrads to Baby! Sounds like a big step for you both.

Wow, you have a teenager in your midst. Eeeek! :) I like the sound of that Amazon voucher, I have been reading ebooks on my computer and I like that I don't have to wait for the post.

Congrats on that voucher - a book is nearly better than a holiday. Me, I'm counting the days until mine. Holiday that is. But a book voucher wouldn't be turned aside! Can't believe Baby is 13 already. My goodness but time flies - trite as that is.
