    Very well written. I feel exactly the same - my daughter is also 13. Fortunately she still thinks boys are yucky.

    My daughters have been the best part of my life (so far, anyway). Lucky to have good ones, but I've never written something so eloquent. Best I've been able to do is listen patiently and give/get a hug when I can. Maybe I should take some cues from Britt.

    My college sophomore has a graduation requirement under communications or something to shadow a leader (in her chosen field, if possible, which happens to be the same as me). I got my boss to agree to it (he was actually excited and really into it, which is cool), and she got to sit in on an operations review. She handled herself so well, with such confidence and respect. I couldn't have been prouder, teared up with pride a little when she introduced herself at the beginning of the meeting and explained why she was there.

    And she provided honest feedback on the review to my boss, which was not totally positive, then freaked out because she told the truth. I told her that was the best thing she could have done, and don't worry about it -- my boss actually had the same opinion and was laughing about it.

    Mine has had one boyfriend. I guess you could call him that even though they never hung out with each other. It lasted about a month and it was over. She hasn't shown much interest in boys (yet). But she thinks Rodney A. Grant (the man who played Wind in his Hair in Dances with Wolves) is sexy (her words lol). To be honest... I just wish I had his hair lol.

    A while back I showed my daughter the extended version of Dances With Wolves and I wasn't really sure that she would sit though a 4 hour movie but she became obsessed with anything Dances With Wolves. I can't tell you how many times she's watched that movie. She can name every single actor in that stared in that movie. We were talking one day about a month ago and she told me that they wrote a sequel to the movie called The Holy Road so I bought the hardback version for her. She read it in less than a month and it is a long book. I told her (although I've never read it) that it can't have a happy ending. She finished it the other day and sure enough, it didn't. But she still loved it and told me all about each character and what their fate was. She asked if I would buy her a copy of Dances With Wolves and I was lucky enough to find a first edition hardback so it will be here tomorrow. I've read it and it's a really good book. Dances With Wolves was one of my favorite movies when I was growing up and that hasn't changed. I've glad she enjoyed it and got to see a different side of history than what most of us were taught.

    I’m hoping she thinks it until she’s 21. :laughing:

    Realistically, I’m just hoping she inherits her mother’s libido and not mine. :oops:

    Hahahaha. Right?

    It's funny you mention that. When I was younger I wished that they would have made a pill that would make me not want or think about sex every 3 mins. Imagine all the shit I could have gotten done if that wasn't always on my mind. Well... I figured out what changes that. Getting older. Don't get me wrong... I still want it, I just don't think about it every waking moment of the day lol. Hell... sometimes my wife asks me "are we going to do something tonight????" lol.

    So, I enjoy reading but there is not much out there I find I enjoy reading. Well, aside from technical shit on forums. Then, I come across a book at work. It’s called “The Hidden Brain” and it was in one of our leadership libraries. Now, immediately I’m thinking “Joy, more leadership BS to shove down our throats...”. I think I might be wrong on this one. I just started it and I plan on reading a chapter or two a day at lunch. So far, it’s got my attention and if you have a chance to read it, I would recommend it.

    Here’s a taster on what it’s generally about.

    List of chapters.

    Is this the book which you are referring too? Sounds pretty interesting. One of my favorite pastimes is reading. If so... I might have to check it out.

    Sounds a lot like this guy, I have seen him speak a couple of times. You can skip the long-winded grandstanding by the school administrator, and this one isn't nearly as good as the ones I have seen.
