Today, I’m writing directly to you. I’m in a quandary. I’m trying to figure out how to celebrate your upcoming birthday. The only thing that comes to mind is to have a tea party with my loved ones. I don’t know if Rachael has any dolls left that could join us.
Is that appropriate now that you are turning 14? It’s so hard to know who you are and what would have meaning. I’ll consult with Rachael (now 16) to see if she has any suggestions. Whatever we decide, I’ll film it and post it here for you to watch.
Just remember, the emotional and physical changes you’re experiencing are natural. You are not alone. Give your mom hell.
Good luck with your writing. I’ll wait to read your short stories.
