1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

" A friend is someone you usually spend a lot of time with" Do you have a source for that definition?

Yeah, so? One of my BFFs hung out with me originally because she considered me a coworker. Another of my BFFs hung out with me originally because she considered me a classmate.  And yet another hung out with me originally because she was the friend of a friend.   And yet all three of those people are now friends with me independently.  go figure.

Hanging out is not the definition of friendship.

A friend is someone you usually spend a lot of time with so you spend a lot of time with 18 year old kids and consider them friends?

Does size of clothes impress you that much that you have to announce it so many times? I could care less about the size it says inside my clothes as I wear all different sizes for different things.

Petite sizes are generally cut smaller than women's. Because petites are smaller. But no, I'm not particularly impressed by the size of my clothing. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find my size consistently? I'm merely pointing out that while you tend to chalk up my size to genentics, there is more to it than that. Using my clothing size, which I find to be relatively consistent, is the easiest way to reference my general body size. Would you prefer me referencing a girl's size 14 as opposed to size 0-2 in ladies? I don't always wear a petite, either. Sometimes I don't need it.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

I think she first saw me as a link to her Mom, but now we are genuine friends. The point is, you can develop friendships with people much younger or much older than you are.

"basically she "hung out" with you originally because she considered you a "mother" more than a friend." Why does it matter how the relationship started? Do you think that proves your point or something? lol

"Are teenagers IYE more interested in hanging out with an older adult than their own peers? " Why are you asking me?

"Friends to the point that I 'hang out" with someone that age as much as other posters have said they do. "  Who here has indicated how much they hang out with someone that age?

I see girls like this on campus. They are a size 4 or so, but still look quite flabby. They are fairly small and probably have a good BMI according to online calculators, but they clearly weigh more than the ideal for their height. On the other hand, there are some girls wearing size 10, who are super fit and muscular, but probably are either at the high end or over the good BMI range according to calculators.

Must be that dreaded "Freshmen 15" lol
