Who came up with term "Sweet 16"?

So far I've raised 3 teens and was just wondering where that term came from? I think I would have coined the phrase "sassy 16 or stressed 16" instead of "sweet"

My Molly girl is 16 today. She is trying out for the high school soccer team and she had to get up at 5am for a 5:30 tryout, then she also has tryouts after school so I won't see her till 5:30 tonight. Long day for her 16th birthday.
She is also stressing out about the party her dad is throwing her on Sat. night. He's entitled it "How to Date my daughter" with a power point presentation before hand for all the young men. (At least that is what he told her) David loves to tease, at least he does it with love, but I don't think she understands that yet, hence the stress and sassyness... Someday..

Even though her brothers would disagree, in my mind, Molly has always been sweet. Luckily I didn't have to wait til she turned 16, but really is there anyone out there who was "sweet 16"?


  1. I'd like to think i was sweet. But let's be honest - i was probably as sassy as they come. Tell Molly Good luck with her try outs!

  2. I was the sweetest 16 year old ever. I never told a lie, I always stayed where I said I would be, I never kissed boys, and I never, ever, ever, stayed out too late.

    See? Perfect.

  3. great picture and I had no iea it was her bday!! My grandma's bday was/is the 5th

    happy bday Molly!
