Why it's Great to be 19

Today is my daughter's birthday.   She told me the other that day that there just wasn't anything good about 19.   I asked her what she meant by that.   She said "19" is boring.   There is just nothing exciting about being 19.   She said when you turn 13 you are finally a "teen".  When you turn 16 that's exciting because now you get to drive.   When you turn 18, you are legally an adult.  When you turn 21, you are of legal age.  But when you turn 19, what is exciting about that?

So in honor of Kayli's 19th Birthday, I'm going to give her a list of 10 reasons why it is great to be 19!

1. This is your last year to be considered a "TEENAGER".
2.  It is socially acceptable to still be living at home.
3. If you flipped the number "19" around, you'd be "61".  'nuff said about that.
4. You still have 6 more years to go before being kicked off your parents Insurance.
5.  You survived High School.
6.  You are still young enough to be carefree.
7.  People still care how old you are and want to throw you a party.  After you turn 21, no one will care until you hit the big 30 and every decade after that.
8.  Little kids still think you are cool.
9.  You can wear leggings, ball cap and no make up and still look good.
10. You are one year closer to thinking that your mother is the smartest person on the planet.
