It’s official. I am now the mother of a teenager.
A very unhappy teenager to boot.
Her birthday present isn’t here yet. Shhhh, it’s a secret, but we got her one of these… and it doesn’t come until tomorrow.
Question of the day: What is your favorite toy?
Edit to add:
Lauren: Mom, I want to go and get some pumpkin pie for my birthday today.
Lauren: We have to go to Albertson’s. They always have it.
Me: OK, let’s go.
Leaving Albertson’s with said pie.
Me: Oh, shoot, I forgot to get you candles so the whole office can sing Happy Birthday to you!
Lauren: Nah, that’s OK. If we put candles in it, it will ruin my pumpkin pie. I just want to eat the pie.
Me: Oooooooooook then. *Don’t mess with a girl and her pie!*
