I have missed this

Offered without further comment, other than to say this is but her most recent observation on the oft-amusing experience of reconnecting with all the kids she’s known for years, some of whom have… changed… in her absence:

    Oh just tell her that with the obesity rates in the south, his boobies will show up soon enough. :-).

    Much love to all of y’all!

    Puberty is a BAD WORD in my house! My 12 year old sings “puberty, puberty, mom hates puberty” around the house just to make steam come out of my ears!

    When it comes to puberty, boys get off easy. Um, wait. Boys have it easier than girls. Yes, that’s what I meant to say. ;)

    People, I do believe Amy’s winning of the Internet was just overridden by Aimee’s winning of the Internet….

    This has just caused the unpleasant return of the memory of the fact that I dated the only boy in my 8th grade class with a full beard and mustache. At 13. This also likely explains why I’m still so beard and mustache averse now. IT ALL MAKES SENSE.

    My daughter (11) is mortified if I talk about periods. So me being the awesome mom I am say often, “it’s not like we are talking about periods or something”. Just the look on her face is priceless. I always strive to win that mother of the year award.

    Also? Puberty sucks. It just does – for all concerned.

    The puberty movie they show at school has a song they thread through the whole thing “just around the corner” so I torture my kids by using that phrase as often as possible.

    My beard is OK, but my moustache is very thin. Fortunately I look better clean shaven. I do wonder what happened to all the kids who could grow a full beard by the age of 14 – do they have to shave twice a day now or what? Ah well.
