Liam's Teen Years

My boys are pretty fascinated with teenagers. I supposed most young children feel the same way. In their eyes, those teens must have it all.

I, on the other hand, am very, very afraid of my boys becoming teenagers. Do they really need to grow up? Do they have to become hormonal and independent?

Liam asked me a funny question the other day regarding his teenage years. "Mommy, when I'm a teenager, will I be able to chew gum anytime I want without asking you first?"

I responded with, "Probably."

He pumped his fist and squealed, "Yes!"

If that's the only independence he needs at the age of 13, we'll be alright.
