Well, hello everyone … nice to have you visiting again!
Today, the 14th July, is the 195th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. There are 170 days remaining until the end of the year.
It’s also Bastille Day, or French National Day – La Fête Nationale!
Our topic this week: Figures of Speech. Again, I was about to check with my good buddy Wikipedia for some help, when daughter #1 offered (possibly more out of boredom than anything else) to help … How can I refuse 🙂
Here’s what she came up with.
Every kid dreams of being a teenager, but words can be deceiving as being a teenager can be a lot different than words can explain. Everyone wants to be 13, have Facebook and be called a teenager. You don’t know what it actually means to be a teenager. You would think being a teenager gives you extra privileges, which it does, but it also comes with extra responsibility. People now look at you differently and at a higher rank. Even now, a month after my 13th birthday it is just sinking in that I am a teenager, that I am 13.
Becoming a teenager is also starting a new chapter in your life. Through these years you’re going to experience some of the best moments that you ever will, but with that also comes a few moments thrown in there. You might have your first relationship, first kiss and first heartbreak. You will be doubted, praised and even be put down. But you have to go through these moments with positivity and courage because if you let the bad comments get to you, you’ll never get anywhere. When you get past these moments and start to smile and laugh you will be the best person you can possibly be.
One thing that teenagers do a lot is that they hide their real, true self. They want to be in the ‘cool club’ so they do things that their normal self would never do. They think that their friends are the people around them when they do this, but their friends are actually the people in the background that don’t need attention, but they act themselves around one another. All they have to do is say ‘no’ and walk away to make real friends that will stick beside you beside you throughout all your problems. You don’t need to have the latest clothes, the most make-up on your face or the best body to be friends with them because if they are your real friends than they won’t judge you.
So becoming a teenager is a great thing that happens in your life and brings lots of positive moments in your life, but there will always be the negative moments that will affect you, but you have to live through these times. Living through these times will only make you a better person.

Being a mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you’ve gained from having one.
