There are so many factors that have gone into this choice that I couldn’t possibly give you the full explanation. In the end, at this stage of my life, it was not something I could continue with.

My teenage years aren’t too far behind me. Just about coughadecadecough or so ago. Those were some tough years. Grueling. My poor, poor mama. Why are we so deaf, dumb, and blind as teens? Thinking like we have the whole world figured out? Perhaps it was just me. No need to go into detail, right? My poor, poor Mama. So grateful those years are far – well not that far – behind. My best friend’s daughter recently turned 13. ThirTEEN. In an attempt to prep my BFF for these tumultuous years, I pulled together a few items intended to possibly ease the journey for both mother and teenage daughter.
