The Teenage Years: Here We Go
Girl 12 turned into Girl 13 today. She had asked me to make her favourite meal for her bday dinner: steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. Banana Cream Pie (store-bought, because, after all - this is me we're talking about) instead of cake. Then 10 minutes ago, she hit me with this gem:
"Mom, can you make Shepherd's Pie instead of steak? I don't feel like chewing that much."
I guess she's embracing the whole teenagers are lazy rule from Day 1.
