Pining for My Fourteen-Year-Old . . .


Does anyone else have a child they never see?  A kid who gets up, goes to school, goes to a friend’s house or the mall or a sporting event after school, comes home at bedtime and disappears into her room?  She’s never been in trouble anywhere, she’s getting straight A’s in school, I have no reason to think that she’s taking drugs or hanging out with a bad crowd (I know the kids she’s at the mall with).  But I never get to see her, let alone talk to her, and that can’t be good.

Just a phase?  Maybe we’ll go back to being friends someday, the way we were when she was younger?  Frankly, I miss her.
