|The design has stood the test of time and then some.|
The daughter put her finesse with her lock on display all day yesterday, bringing back memories of anxiety that I wouldn't get the damn thing open.
Everyone has his/her issues. The daughter clearly does not have lock-opening ones.
More importantly this is her official transition from being a Kid to becoming a Tween, then onto Official Teen and and finally Wack Young Adult. Other milestones could include Crazed Maturity, and finally Ultimate Decrepitude.
As one on the later end of the spectrum I applaud her advancement to middle school, where freedom and responsibility come with concerned looks from parents and educators.
Let the games begin!
