Until yesterday, there had only been two monumental statements of pure rebellion from our daughter, Savanna. Statements that go vehemently against all the principles and morals with which she had been raised. Statements that opposed so our undeclared, but explicitly well-known Family Mission Statement. .
First Offense in 2003 "Mom, I want to start wearing bows"
Second offense in 2009. "I want to start baking"
Third Offense January 3rd, 2013. "I am going to join the golf team"
If we had our own set of Commandments in our family it would be this:
I Thou shalt not wear bows or spend an inordinate amount of time on your hair or appearance.
II Thou shalt not do anything in the kitchen that requires more than 5 ingredients or the sifting of flour.
III Golf is of the devil and should never, under any circumstances, be considered with anything but pure disgust and disdain
