Here is C all ready for her semi formal dance 2 weeks ago. I can't believe that she looks so grown up in the photos and I am definitely looking forward to more to come. Having said that - It's always hard for the moms especially for moms who has daughters. They are so different at this age to say the least. I struggle everyday to understand her and trying to convince her that her family should be more important to her than her friends.
Subtle defiance is definitely the order of the day and I must say that I am not dealing with it as well as I could have. She has never made me worry much about her grades but other than that - I must say that I do not understand her much other than the things she chooses to tell me. I guess this is all a part and parcel of a mother daughter relationship and I hope that someday we will see eye to eye.
