I enjoy being a girl

This evening, G showed me the pamphlet she got at the Growth and Development (a.k.a. "Fun With Puberty") presentation at school.

It said that while 80 percent of mothers think they've prepared their daughters for the emotional effects of having their period, only 10 percent of girls report knowing exactly what to expect.

So I said to G, "Okay, here's the truth. Having your period makes you grumpy."

And she looked me up and down and said dryly, "I know."

Erm. I guess I don't hide those crazy hormonal mood swings as well as I think I do.

LOL. I think I said the same thing to my mother, word-for-word.

TUTUROR Va spun - mi s-a parut amuzant, am facut testul si m-au sunat
inainte sa termin de povestit!! S-a implinit ceva neasteptat. Sa vi se
implineasca si voua ceea ce va doriti!

Oameni buni……l-am facut si………….jur ca……….dorinta mi
s-a implinit in 15 minute.

Inca ma mai mir. Sa joci nu costa nimic.

SUERTE

Noroc!

Vraja Vrajitorie

Intradevar functioneaza. Acum cateva luni am primit un e-mail asemanator
cu acesta pe care vi-l trimit si am urmat instructiunile. A doua zi mi
s-a implinit dorinta si era ceva care nu se putea intampla accidental,
adica era o dorinta aproape imposibila….. si s-a implinit. Asa ca acum
va trimit ce am primit ca sa incercati si voi. Noroc!

Va asigur ca e adevarat pentru ca am avut rezultate in mai putin de o
ora. Nu costa sa incercati…Puteti incerca si vedeti, chiar daca unii
spun “nu cred in vrajitoare, dar “se stiu”. Pune-ti o dorinta…si vezi
ce sa va intampla…Incepe sa te gandesti la ceva ce-ti doresti cu
adevarat pentru ca functioneaza…

Persoana care mi-a trimis acest mesaj mi-a zis ca dorinta i-a fost
indeplinita la 10 minute dupa ce a citit mesajul si atunci m-am gandit
sa-l trimit. Vrajitoarele iti vor implini o dorinta!!!

Pune-ti dorinta cand se termina numaratoarea inversa!!!

*****Pune-ti dorinta********

Trimite acest mesaj la10 persoane in decurs de o ora. Daca-l trimiti,
dorinta ta se va realiza. Daca nu-l trimiti, se va intampla exact
inversul dorintei tale…….. dupa aceea imi spui ce s-a intamplat.
