Great page to remember your fun times together. The worry never leaves when they go into the great big world. Makes time together even more special, though.

You always do great layouts. I don't have a teenager, but I remember being a stinker of one! I know my mom wanted to beat me a lot, too (probably 75% of the time! haha).

My parents had 3 girls to contend with. MAN, did we ever argue - over clothes most of the time. Our son, Ben was such a Culture Shock for me. We had NO boys around except Dad!

Great lay-out.
