The rising of the teenager

Ben is growing into quite the teen.  It seems to come naturally.  He's taller, deeper voice, more body hair.  But you know how I know for sure he is a teen?

The dishes.  The dishes and the fact that they will pile up in his room if I don't say, every day, "Bring out all the dishes and trash!"

I wonder why kids do that?  Leave dishes in their room as teens.  I mean, he was always pretty good and drinking his drink and putting the glass on the counter in the kitchen.  Now, almost over night (ok over the course of a few months) he is leaving crusty dishes in his room.  

Maybe I won't wash them....I'll just add food to them.  Maybe that will make him bring them in...hmmmmm.
