In three days, my youngest child will be a teenager.
This isn’t much of an adjustment. She already looks like one. She largely acts like one, although she still makes a point of getting up early enough on Saturday mornings to watch “Viva Pinata.” So mostly the change is in the looks and pats of sympathy we get from people.
If you have not seen “Viva Pinata,” shield your eyes. It is the brightest show I have ever seen.
