Small Town Advantages to Raising Teens


I'll try my best to give the facts without the gossip. Living in a small town has certain advantages to raising your kids. Especially when your neighbor is a police officer ... not that being married to one has been any easier on the youngins ... but it's helpful!

Fact 1: Steamy car windows a block from home Saturday evening.

Fact 2: Car resembles a daughter's boyfriend's car.

Fact 3: A neighbor drops a dime to the PD on a suspicious car (with my permission :).

Fact 4: Guess which officer daughter had to sit next to in church Sunday?

I'll leave the details up to your imagination (but keep it clean).

A good night's rest for a stressed out mom ... priceless!
