❤ oh, I know this thief so well! My daughter is almost 15 and it has always been like this with her. Her almost 11 year old brother, hardly ever.

So strange. And you described it so well. Rest assured, my daughter has become a magnificently capable, well-rounded, independent human being. She loves me fiercely, as I do her.

Still…

❤ hugs to you and your determined, assured number one.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
