I've mentioned before how my kids are vampires. They are still awake in the wee hours of the morning when everyone else is asleep. Sometimes they tell their father, who leaves around 4:30 a.m., goodbye.

I was going to write a "you know summer is over when..." column. The first awareness I was going to add was that school supplies are in the stores. However, it's not a good indicator of summer being over because school supplies are out at the beginning of July. You also can't say summer is over when you can't find a bathing suit in the store, because you'd be hard pressed to find one in July, either. And for God's sake, Costco had Halloween stuff out at the beginning of this month.

I feel bruised and beaten as a mother these days. I just came from a weekend where once again, I was regaled with the accomplishments of someone's perfect child. In this case it was a grandmother, at a Rod Run we were attending, bragging about her seventeen-year-old granddaughter who built a street rod with her own welding torch, and HAD to go to the Car Show awards because she won the junior division. In that same breath she also managed to tell me that the girl is getting straight A's in Running Start and will graduate from high school with an AA before she heads off to an Ivy League college.

My Florida friend, who was visiting last week, and I were patting ourselves on the back for raising such a fine trio of young ladies. Even at 15, her daughter and my daughters, who are 18 and 21, still get along and have much in common. I've seen fast friends with age differences such as our daughters' lose interest in each other as the older one outgrows the younger one. Truthfully, though, I'm not sure how much it says about my own daughters' maturity level as much as it does her daughter.
