By the authority invested in me I banish throughout the kingdom on this day all bad thoughts, occurrences of inclement weather, school tests, homework curfews and assigned bedtimes. Today is Liz Day, decreed in honor of the birth, 13 years ago of the world's next superstar of stage and screen, my granddaughter Liz, the Princess formerly known as Paige.
I'm finding it hard to accept that my retirement plan is now a teen.
Mrs. T asked her to make a wish for her big day. In response, Liz informed her, that just to let them know she was willing and able to arrive early, her application to Julliard had been mailed. Acceptance was her wish. A jump to college from 7th grade hardly sounds unreasonable.
Love you teen darling!
