I COULD GO BACK


I have always said I would never want to go back to age 12 again. However, now that my granddaughter Beth is 12, she's making me remember the good parts -- like artistic fingernail designs. She painted these herself after being influenced by her Aunt Chelle. Now, the boy crazy part we could all live without. I hear her brothers have already had to set at least one fellow straight on how to properly treat their sister.

  1. My baby is 12 now. I find myself think ahead to all the things she's facing. ACK! I'd do it for her if I could!

  2. I have 2 twelve-year-old girl granddaughters, both are very pretty. I cannot imagine how their fathers will deal with the boys!!

    When I was 15, it was my mother who dealt with them. She took a guy into our kitchen and told him to be sure to bring me back in the same condition in which I went out. We were just going 1 block to the A&W root beer stand for hot dogs....LOL
    I was mortified!!!

  4. My daughter just turned 12 today, so I am preparing myself for what's to come.

    Nice nails! It makes me want a manicure to go with my Bahama braids. :)

  6. OGO, wouldn't we all take that struggling age away from our girls if we could! Judy, my son says it will be easy to deal with the boys...he'll kill them:-) myutopia, great to hear from you again! Scarlet, batten down the hatches. JeanMac, AMEN! I raised my children alone and my son used to take his sister's dates outside before they left and threaten to break their arms if they touched his sister. I did not know this until the kids were grown. Thankfully Beth has TWO brothers! LOL
