My baby turned 16 last Saturday. That's 16 years ago since she was born on the feast day of the Immaculate Conception (the irony!) It now means she can get married with parental permission, drive certain construction machinery, can leave school, smoke cigarettes, drive a moped, but can't drink or vote. She's interested in none of the above and I'm hoping it'll stay that way for a while at least.
Wow to be 16 again and know it all......What one piece of advice would you like to have been given at 16? Would you have listened anyway?
(Did they raise the legal smoking age to 18?)
