Sixteen is the magic number in our house. Basically anytime cherub 1 used to ask me when she can do something, my response is 'when you are 16'. That is right, 16 for wearing makeup, getting earrings, driving- you get the picture. (Zip it-I know I am living in a dreamworld.)
Today, cherub 3 asked me, "Mom, how old will I be when I get married? Will I be 16?"
After I explained that people get married at different ages but definitely NOT when they are 16. Clearly I need a new magic number. Onwards and upwards.
