I adore my teenagers. My son is 19 and my daughter is 17. We are great friends. :) In some ways they are night and day. My son is laid back, physically big, and not super crazy social. My daughter is very social, dramatic (read not laid back LOL), and physically very small. In other ways they are very alike. Both have a crazy sharp sense of humor, debate well, think critically, and aren't afraid to question authority when necessary. They share my sarcasm and we love to make stupid jokes and reference TV and movies in ways others do not get at all.
I love how kind they are. :)
