She'll be 18 this winter, and in my humble opinion, you can't be both a teenager and an adult at the same time, so once you're 18 you're not a teenager. You're a kind-of-sort-of-maybe-adultish-adult.
But it really shouldn't matter, since I specifically told Annie to stop growing at the age of 11. (Clearly, I have some issues with the passage of time.) She ignored me, so now she is 17 and does 17 year old things like go to prom.
So of course, I planned a TOTALLY CASUAL visit up to my parents house on the same weekend that JUST RANDOMLY HAPPENED to be the weekend of prom. Totally casual, you guys! Happenstance!
Annie was beautiful.
And finally, Maggie realized that her Auntie Anne is ACTUALLY A PRINCESS, and then the whole day made sense to her, and she got excited too.
On the RARE days that she's not being a princess, Auntie Anne can usually be found either playing with a niece or nephew,
It's actually kind of fun to watch your younger siblings grow up. They start as kids, turn into princesses, and then end up your actual real-life friends.
Friends that make you act like children. So it sort of all evens out.
