End of School Year Fluff

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?

If you say so. I think my equally small in bone structure and height but heavier in weight sister would vehemently disagree with you though. Given the amount of DNA that she and I share, I'm going to chalk the bulk of it up to diet and exercise...as much as you'd like to chalk it up to genetics, I'm the only size 0 in the family.

Fever girl, can you provide a definition of *friend*?

I'm not over 40, but I'm close enough to answer: we go to lunch or breakfast or dinner. We shop. We talk. Same things I do w/friends my own age. Or older.

Converse. Share stories. Sit together at a ballgame or other event.  Chat when sitting poolside.  Talk about our lives.  Have a meal.

You do realize, don't you, that even someone with very small bone structure and height can be very overweight?  I know a woman that is shorter than Regina, has tiny hands and feet (because she has a very small frame) but weighs probably 175.

I'm the only size 0 in the family.

O.kay. 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. Also, petite sizes are different than women's.

Nice. So basically just talking. And an 18 year old is really interested in being with a 40 + year old adult so much? Hmmm...I can see maybe here and there at a party or such but most 18 year olds are more interested in hanging out with their own friends (if they are social people, of course).
