This weekend, I had the pleasure of hanging out with two remarkable young ladies. With all the talk of "kids these days, what with their internets and videos and rock music," it's sometimes hard to remember that they are working on finding their way in the world. And while I used to think it was my job to keep LittleMuffinGirl on the right path, I hope I'm doing her a service by letting her make (some of) her own decisions.

I'm really pleased she has an awesome group of friends. I was treated to a karaoke version of "Defying Gravity" in my car. There's nothing like hearing it sung with complete abandon by two 12-year old who know they will fly one day...

I'm through accepting limits

'Cause someone says they're so.

Some things I cannot change

But 'til I try, I'll never know!
