hehehehe ... at least they probably (hopefully) smell better than my 17 year son ... *wink* :)
Hehehe. I bet that my daughters attitude doesn't smell any better ;)
Crickets chirping is a sound I love, even if it means summer is leaving. Have a good one!
Good luck. I seem to remember that if you can survive it without killing each other it does get better. Eventually.
PS: And my memories are from the difficult daughter's perspective.
Haha...yes...conjures up many "happy" memories!!! lol
