  • The successful young adults they are turning into. Very responsible and leading themselves down their own path. I enjoy everyday with them and watching them discover and learn along the way. DD is 15 soon to be 16 and DS is 17.

  • Their personalities. I have several teens and some have been really difficult, some not. In good and bad, they still have certain characteristics which I believe are part of what makes them who they are, those things that are innate. One has an awesome sense of humor, another a sweet tenderness towards others, still another a terrific work ethic, there's tons really, too many to list

  • I love my daughter's smile, her sense of justice, her willingness to fight for what she believes in, her wittiness, her kindness and the way she still calls me momma when she wants something.

    I love my son's contagious laugh, his dry sense of humor, they way he fearlessly puts himself into new social situations, his unbreakable willpower, how the little things in life never get to him and how he "lets" me kiss him on the head.

I love their smiles, I love their laughs, I love looking at their faces and knowing I created those beautiful features, I love their hugs, their kisses, their I love yous. I love that even at 12 and 16 they still lay on my lap to watch movies, I love that they still love to cuddle and don't have a problem when mom comes over to run her hands through their hair and kiss them on cheek (even with friends over) I love that my 12 yr old still asks me to tuck him in , I love that hug out of nowhere. I love the men they are becoming, strong, confident, intelligent, fun, kind, and loving

  • I like that they are respectful and do as they're told. I was worried about teen rebellion, but didn't need to after all. They don't give me any trouble.
