what Miley taught me about parenting (link to the post here)
I really liked this post; it reminded me of the fact that for over a year and half I had a tween living with me. She enjoyed the typical teen magazines and listening to her mp3 player. She lives with her mom now in Arizona and is about to turn 13. She is a smart girl, sometimes too smart, or smart about things that are not for 13 year olds to be smart about–if you know what I mean. I worry about her, quite a bit. I hope that the “normal” pre-teen stuff we did while she was here is still in her head and heart as she makes her soon-to-be teenage choices.
