You're still her baby, so of course she's worried about you. My Granny was talking about "the girl being at a difficult age" when she was 85, and my darling Mama (the girl in question) was 50-odd.
You guys are making me wheez! Yeah, I had to tell my mom her Christmas pearls (bought from Pattye and big and gorgeous) were a steal because I 'knew' someone.
Then when my son bought me pearls, I told him I sure hoped he had spent less than Xdollars, or I'd be upset!
Still, your tale of that girl being at a difficult age can't be topped!
Actually, she's not yet become a Granny. Because I'm the eldest of 4 children, and Isaac's the only grandchild yet, he wasn't falling for any "Granny" or "Grandad" tricks. So he calls them Mum and Dad, and us Mummy and Abba. We do occasionally get some funny looks, if I'm out with one of my parents, and people hear Isaac talking to "Mum and Mummy". But fortunately, my darling Mama doesn't notice or realise the possible implications (-:
To get us back on topic, boy-in-pearls:
Oh boy--breaking out the family photos!!! Issac is adorable (wearing pearls no less)!!! Ha!! Here's my little one. I need to upload more photos to picassa--she's changes so much. She's now a big girl (almost 9 months old).

She's not wearing pearls! huh!
Isaac put my pearl and amethyst necklace on to cheer himself up when he had chickenpox a fortnight or so ago.

You'll have to get him a Tahitian pearl on a leather strap. :-)
Amanda & EST,
Hey, you two have some real cutie pies there! I recently gifted a new mom and her baby daughter with matching freshwater pearl necklaces~fun to have a gift for the mother too! It's good to start their pearl collection early, is what I was getting around to say!
SO MANY PEARLS, SO LITTLE TIME----
My wife insists on Alexandra--but I'll be calling her Alex when she gets older. :-). Those would be an expensive teething ring, but my little one prefers sparkly diamonds to chew on.
