    Do teenagers really do that? If so, I have been completely abnormal my whole teen life...

    I second that. [​IMG]
    I suppose normal teenagers don't get to have a ball on BYC though, they're too busy off worrying whether the green eyeshadow makes their nose look big. [​IMG]

    I'm just lucky, maybe.

    My teens are almost not teens anymore, and they haven't always been fastidious, in fact most often they've been carelessly untidy, but they are so involved academically and in community service and in sports and work and stuff, I really can't complain. They are delightful, intelligent, creative people that are wonderful to have around, and I'll miss them next year when they're both away from home, one as an undergrad, and one attending her first year at veterinary college.

    That's why I'm getting chickens in the spring. Empty nest syndrome.

    I've met a lot of their friends too, when they were in high school. All really neat kids.

    I LOVE teenagers. They're amazing!

    I was a slob as a kid and it wasn't until GF and I moved in together that I started cleaning up. She was not going to allow me to live that way. I always hope my boys will marry a good housekeeper... they will need it. I let them keep their rooms the way they want but they have to keep the doors shut and the rest of the house is kept clean. Bedrooms are for sleeping in not living in.
