For Tommy, puberty meant applying deoderant frequently. He carries his aerosol in his pocket and leaves a trail of either the scent from the can or the scent of too long without the can everywhere he goes. For Sarah, being told that this summer she shouldn’t wear a light colored, unlined swimsuit resulted in her removing the offending hair with a razor. Instead of tossing needed items in the grocery cart, she sent her 4-year-old sister to pick them out. “Get that pink and blue box right there and put it in Mommy’s basket.” When she wasn’t handed the child’s menu at our favorite ‘kids eat free’ restaurant, she almost broke down and cried. “But, I want something off my regular menu.” Poor Sarah. Getting to stay up a little later on school nights just isn’t enough compensation for everything else.
