Madison is 12

Madison turned 12 on the 4th. I'm not sure when that happened but it did. But let's just be clear--she may be getting older but she's still a kid.

Mike: Madison, did you know that your birthday is on Star Wars Day?
Madison: Well all day the boys in my class were like, "May the fourth be with you!" and I knew that was like what they say on Star Wars so that makes sense but the whole time I was like, "you could say that any day of the month because every month has a fourth" but I was thinking about that because earlier this week when we were talking about the field trip we were going to take she was all like, "We're going on May 4th and that's Star Wars day--May the Fourth be with you!!" So I realized, yeah, its like May and May, so of course it would be Star Wars day because you can't just do that in April or March or whatever. It doesn't really work. So we ended up going on Star Wars day and now I get it.
Mike: So . . . yes?
Madison: Wait . . . Did you ask me a question?

So yeah she's still a kid.

Twelve, wow. Averi just turned eleven on May 2. That's how old we were when we first became friends. Weird.

to peek into the thought process of a 12-year-old is to stare into the abyss. I hope you and Mike are recovering! ;)

Juliette--Really? Were we 12? I was just thinking about that the other day. Do you remember when I offered you a Pepsi and you said you didn't drink it? I had no idea people didn't drink caffeine until I met you--I was very confused.
