And So It Begins...

Just look at that face. That's twelve years-old personified. Not a teenager but certainly not a little girl either. I'm gonna need a lot of help (of the pharmaceutical variety as well) these next six years.

I did not like being 12, but I did smooch a few ladies during that year which made it better.

You smooched "a few" ladies when you were 12?! Don't tell me that!

I really don't want to even think about Stella doing any "smooching" in the next year, at least.

i'm sure he only smooched them in the chastest way possible. like on the cheek beofre running away giggling.

i on the other hand received no smooches at all my 12th year, much to my chagrin!

i have a hard time believing she could be 12 already, it's probably much harder for you to believe though. i still remember calling up your number from las vegas and getting the answering machine with her james brown message on it in that tiny little voice ( i may not know about karate but i know about ca-razy!)

Let's forget the whole 12-year-old thing for a moment and focus on that cake! Looks delicious! Damn, I WANT that cake!

Nope... smoooooching smooooooching... to a Lionel Richie record. But you daughter would never do that... she probably does not even like Lionel Richie.

I know, isn't it crazy, Carolyn? It freaks me out on a daily basis that she's not that chubby-cheeked, adorable, sweet little James Brown-singing girl anymore.

Now she primps before going to the mall with her friends.

SHUDDER!!!

Oh, and the cake was deelish - chocolate frozen custard layered with white cake.

I'm going to have to implement a no-smooching rule, it appears.

Oh that is such a familiar expression!

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but "for the next 6 years?" Alannah, Alannah, Alannah. As the mother of kids ages 25, 22, and 19, I hasten to warn you that 6 years' worth of pharmaceuticals won't be nearly enough. Better stockpile enough for many more than 6. :)

Ugh. That's what I'm afraid of, Lori. Allow me a little bit of denial, though....that's the real mother's little helper!
