    I recently read a comment you left on an Summer Camp for Parents, posted by The New York Times nearly a year ago. I have to agree with the return of teens, feeling more independent. In addition to that Independence, my children are more apt to pick up after themselves (without being asked) rely on each other, and have more confidence in their actions. Every year my children go on a bike tour through Teen Treks. Not only am I pleased they are active, they learn so much about themselves and their surroundings. I recommend a bike tour to any parent with a teenager at home. Not only will the parents enjoy their time sans teen, they will be pleased with the all around demeanor and attitude their child comes home with!

    I think Rachel’s 6 word story is “2 rules: no tattoos, no piercings” and Ellen’s 6 word story is “Power struggles … broccoli today, girlfriends tomorrow”.

    I am trying to think of a 6 word story for my life as a mommy of a 7 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. I will have to get back to you…
