Whether I like it or not, I am officially the mother of teenager. That means that my daughter is now able to leave school unescorted rather than partake in the after school program. This doesn’t sound like a big deal but it is. Since kindergarten, I never had to worry about providing a snack for her because she has always been enrolled in an after school program that feeds her. That has all changed now that she arrives at home at 3:30. She can hardly wait it out until I come home from work to eat. She is a growing teenager which means she wants to eat all the time and she wants a snack when she gets home.
