A New Era For Friday The 13th

Today is Thing 2’s birthday. She turns 13 today on Friday the 13th no less.  She also doesn’t hesitate to remind me she is now “officially” a teenager–no more of this “preteen” stuff.  A new era has begun.

I now have an adult son, an official teenager, and a 30-year-old living under my roof (the 30-year-old being Thing 3 who is physically 10 but mentally 30).

This evening Thing 2 is having some friends come over for a party. Thing 3 is also having one of her friends come over (another 30-year-old) because it’s no fun for Thing 3 to not have anyone to hang out with when Thing 2 and her friends are ignoring Thing 3.

Tomorrow I’m taking everyone to the Warren Dunes in Michigan for a day at the beach. I had thought about seeing if my neighbor wanted to go along so I could have some adult conversation, then remembered I’m already going to have two other 30-year-olds with me (although they’ll probably act like 10-year-olds at the beach. Go figure.)

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!

    Thirteen is my lucky number, but it was an awful AGE… Maybe your crew is off to a better start with a lucky-number beginning. 🙂 Here’s wishing you (and Thing 2) all the best for Thirteen!
