So Who Invented Tweens Anyway?


There was a little girl, who had a little curl... You get where I'm going with this, right?


Anyway, if she would just stop the back chat, tidy her bedroom from time to time and oh, I don't know, possibly unpack the dishwasher the first time I ask her? Then maybe, just maybe, that horrid part wouldn't actually be so bad.


Because most of the time she is extremely loving, immensely entertaining, and great fun to be around. And she regularly takes Bailey for walks, without me even having to ask her, which earns her major points!


So yes, definitely the girl with the curl. But you know what? She's my girl with the curl.
