Preteen became an official Teen yesterday. So now I have to figure out what to call my kids when I blog about them. I was thinking Teen 1 and Teen 2, but neither of them likes that idea. One of them suggested I don’t need to blog about them at all, but I’m a mom. I can’t NOT blog about them. Right now I’m thinking College Student and Junior High Kid. That says something about each one of them. But it’s a lot of extra typing.
Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn’t just go ahead and use their first names…anyone around here knows exactly who I’m talking about anyway. It’s not like I’m really protecting their identities. But it just seems like a good idea to use something other than actual names. So for now, College Student and Junior High Kid it is.
