all you mothers out
there...know what I'm talking about
Talking about cars,
talking about girls who are 18 and boys who are 17, chauffeuring, cooking,
endless grocery shopping, laundry and debating, more debating,
age-conscious manipulating, further debating, having conversations
about the luxuries that every other parent allows their kids except
you, curfew times, conversations about appropriate clothing,
language, advances, sports, dates, tv shows and movies. I could go
on and on and on!
