I Am Officially the Mother of a Teenager

The child has always tried to bite off more than he can chew. Happy 13th birthday, Elder :)

In other news, 5:00 AM, 40 minutes, 10.7 miles WITH Tabata intervals, thankyouverymuch. And I'm having my body fat percentage tested on Sunday, which should be entertaining.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

It's the beginning of the end my dear.

"A daughter is a daughter for life, a son is a son till he takes a wife"

Moral of the story, don't let that kid date! :0)

I swear, on the one hand I'm going to want to pick any future daughters-in-law to bits, but having been a DIL myself, and having had some pretty wretched experiences with the in-laws (none of Choreboy's family, thank goodness), I'm going to try to be like the best mother-in-law humanly possible.

It may strain the limits of my abilities, but I shall give it a valiant attempt!

Happy Birthday, Elder!!

Teens are wonderful. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. We have thoroughly enjoyed ours - honestly!!

As the mother of two daughters teetering on the precipice of adolescence, I feel...fear. Lots of fear. :)
Got your email; will respond tonight!

I will pass on the birthday wishes to the boy, all :)

Norma, LOL! And whew :) I think I've chilled some, but then I start with the tooth gnashing again. Good grief.
