So Far, So Good

The Angsty Teen is surviving band camp! She's at school for 13-15 hours a day this week… tired child.

People ask me if she's been having headaches… I say, "I don't know."

She hasn't complained of a headache… and I've learned not to ask if I don't have to ask. If she has a bad headache I'm pretty sure she will tell me… loudly and in no uncertain terms, actually. (You know that's right.)

I actually don't know if it is a direct result of the acupuncture treatment she had last week… or if it's a result of good food from the Farmers Market.

And, no, I don't mean all the wonderful veggies… I'm talking about the cotton candy.
Sugar is her Love Language
Any acupuncture believers out there?

This is the craziness that defines my life:
