Going Nuts by Way of Teenager

So my 13 year old daughter decided to wear her new shoes to school this morning. One small problem. She left them at the neighbors house last night and they had already left for the day.  No big deal. Well... that's what I thought. She went into a melt down. Crying, stomping her foot and letting me know it was my fault she didn't have them because I should have seen she didn't wear them home last night and remind her to go get them.  Needless to say this made me insane. I gave her other shoes and told her to get over it, but she dragged it out for a bit. Uh.  I can tell a teen aged girl is going to prove to be a bit more of a challenge for me than my son was! But like my mom always said, "One day your daughter will act exactly like you." -And she did! Except I guess I should be grateful as my meltdowns at her age consisted of a lot more in depth wallowing, crying and arguing than hers! Mine ruined my whole day and my mothers.  Hers was only about 5 minutes and the rest of the day was fine!  Hope that is the extent of her problems through school.  Wouldn't that be great! I'll keep crossing my fingers!
