My daughter has been thirteen for less than two weeks and yesterday we had this conversation:
Me: I don’t appreciate your giving me attitude.
Daughter: I’m not giving you attitude. I’m a teenager, and teenagers have mood swings, in case I’m the first one you’ve ever met. Eyeroll.
Me: Did you just say Eyeroll?
Daughter: I wouldn’t have to if you’d been looking at me.
