Well, difficult child's not quite a teen, but almost there. Dropped difficult child off at camp this morning, 2 giggling girls shouting hello to him as we are at the back of the parking lot, then a line of 4 in total standing in the hallway as we walk in as his welcoming committee. I said nothing, just looked at him and smiled; his response: "I am the coolest guy in the camp you know." Then difficult child makes a big show of kissing and hugging me good-by - more so than normal; which just made the girls squeal a little more. He's smart if nothing else. When school starts, I'm sure I'll be posting lots of vents, but I thought this was cute.
