While walking through Target ...

Amanda:  Ooh, look at that cute bedspread!! I need that for my bed.

This declaration coming from an 11 year old who is already on her THIRD bedspread.

Me:  You do NOT need a new bedspread.  Your father and I have had the same bedspread for almost 18 years. (Possibly because we keep spending money on new bedspreads for YOU.)

Amanda:  Yeah, but YOU don't have friends over and hang out with them in your room.

Me:  That may be true, but ...

Amanda:  Face it, Mom. Your life is over.

Me:  Wow, Amanda, thank you so much for those life affirming words. 

Oh, and enjoy making your own bedspreads from now on.
