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.
