Today, at 11:59 a.m., I became the mother of not one, but two teenagers. Dancer Sloth turned 13 today. She's been acting like a teenager for awhile now (you know, eye rolling, heavy sighing, always being "bored" :-) )so it was just a matter of making it official.
But, other than that stuff, she's a wonderful kid. She's a very smart, honor roll student. She is an amazingly talented dancer. She is the best big sister Fia Sloth could ask for. (We'll ask Emily's opinion on that in a few years. Now is not a good time. ;-) ) She's courteous and she's compassionate. I imagine that she's going to grow up into quite a wonderful young woman.
