tweens and toys

I often wish we could flash back to the era sans cell phones. When I heard a voice on the phone instead of deciphering confusing emojis. When I conversed face-to-face more often than I communicated through a keyboard. But I digress, that time is gone, especially when you live with an almost teenager.

They get famous being funny and capitalize on that fame by designing a clothing line. That tweens beg for.

She’s a good kid, though. Actually, she’s a terrific kid that makes me proud on a very regular basis. Even when she leaves her towels on the floor (repeatedly), her coat on the chair, and her shoes in my closet. She’s an amazing kid.

And sometimes, I toss rational thoughts out the window and reward her with material things. Like said clothing line.

Then I make her model for a session, so ultimately, Mom wins. Every time.
