Condolences Please

Send condolences to me. I am now the mother of a teenager. I do not know how this happened. Well, I do know how it happened, but I am much too young to be the mother of a freaking teenager! I remember turning 13 and thinking it was a milestone, so I wanted to make this birthday one she would remember. I hope it was everything she hoped it would be. Now, she's away at church camp, the first time she's ever been away from home for more than a couple of days. I'm excited for her beause I never got to go to church camp. I know she'll have loads of fun. But to be honest, I'm enjoying the peace around here. No fighting, no attitudes, just quiet. Ahhhhhh... I think I'll go sit back and relax.

I recall how it happened;)

And, of course, you are much too young to be the mother of a 13 year old.

But my sense of honor, not to mention legal consideration, tells me that you must be no younger than 31 years of age as of last Friday (do the math).

Then again, if you were from Mississippi, you could (almost) be the grandmother of a 13 year old!

Am I 'in trouble' now?

Vicki said...

Art, you're probably ALWAYS in trouble.

I agree...Stacie, you are very youthful-looking. There's no way you can have a 13-year-old! She's nearly the same age you are!

Of course, there's no way I can have a 26-year-old, either. How in Heaven's name did that happen?!

A beautiful teenager she is! Hope you were able to enjoy that peace around the house while she was gone!
