Ha! I'm way ahead of her. I stopped weighing myself about ten years ago, and stopped looking in the mirror a few years ago. Then again, my eyesight is pretty bad already, so there wasn't much use in looking anyway.

My kids have friends that are 16, 17, even 18 years old and have never attempted to get a driver's license because their families cannot afford to insure a teenage driver. The insurance can be more than car payments.

Which makes me dread having three teenage drivers in a couple of years. I still want them to know how to drive before they leave home.

Hard to believe it's been 35 years since Elvis died. I remember that day well ...I was working at a tourist trap during college, and never quite realized how big Elvis was until his death was announced. Ten years later, I was at Graceland for the candlelight vigil, and was again shocked at his following.

Seriously, I have a hypothesis about how some overprotective parenting comes about. I see it in my kids friends, the 10-year-olds who've never made a bad spending decision because they don't get a regular allowance or opportunity to work for money, and teenagers who aren't allowed to walk home from school. The parents have trouble moving from one phase of a child's life to the next. They get comfortable with a toddler and can't imagine their child as a competent preschooler. Or they get comfortable with their eight-year-old and don't see how a middle school student is different. I hate to see my kids grow up and leave, too, but I also want them to have the skills to take care of themselves when they do.
