Juxtaposition...

Message left on her cellphone at about 11:30 last Saturday morning for my firstborn, who is busy planning her wedding to her college sweetheart, whom she’s marrying in A’s backyard on the last Sunday in May:

“Hey there sweetheart, your father and I are in Crate and Barrel, looking at champagne flutes and discussing caterers...”

**************************************

Message (not delivered, except in my head) for my younger daughter, upon learning, yesterday, of her separation and impending divorce:

“No! Absolutely not! BAD IDEA! Go to your room and think about this, and don’t come out until you’ve changed your attitude...”

*sigh* - if only it were that simple...

After a certain age, they don't much listen to Mom anymore.

That age would be...what? About eleven?

So sorry about the one, but happy for you on the other...!

Wow, I can't imagine ever having to tell my parents I was divorcing but then again, I can't comprehend ever getting divorced.

I hope she reconsiders. Very sad:(
