So I have decided that while I am not now, and may never be ready for teenagers, there are a few things that might be nice about having them:
1: They can brush and flush their own teeth
2: They don't need bathroom help.
3: When it's dinner time I can put it on the table and then tell them eat it or starve without feeling guilty about it, or feeling like I have to make something else so they will eat it.
4: They can understand the concept of what clothes actually match, at least a little better. Doesn't mean that they will follow the color rules but at least they know they are breaking them.
5: I can send them outside to go do something and I don't have to go with them to watch their every move.
6: They know not to eat dirt, rocks and berries off of the bushes.
7: They put themselves back to sleep at night.
So, at least there are a few things to look forward to.
