I have a confession. I am a rule keeper. I obey the rules. In my nearly 44 years I've never had a traffic violation - not even a parking ticket.
So it comes as some surprise to me to learn that I have produced a teenager who is not so bothered about the rules.
This morning I looked at her and said:
Hmm. That wouldn't be eyeliner you're wearing to school would it?
You could get a clothing detention if a teacher catches you.
I don't care. T and J (BFs) both have clothing detentions at lunchtime today so if I'm caught I'll just go with them. We'll just chat during detention so it's no big deal. Don't worry about it.
She's right. I shouldn't worry. It's not my problem.
I just wish I was so relaxed.
