Thank you for sharing your story with us. I thought you described it so meticulously and genuinely for any parent to relate to. Great Job!
I enjoyed your choice of descriptive words regarding your daughters. "Arab trader, diva." Great word pictures. All women have either been through it personally or watched up close and too personal. You made it easy to identify with this 'interesting' stage of life.

The article reminded me of my 10 year old granddaughter, Allison. The conversations were a bit confusing and need reformatting to be easier to read. The thread is easy to follow if you have children, though.
This made me smile, she'll turn human again in a few years, Those years can be tough.

Even though you were telling a true story, try changing the girls' names instead of using initials.

I like your message, although it may seem trivial to us, to our kids it can be huge like thinking your sisters don't like you because they want to color. Nice job.
