I love your title in relation to your story. The conversation between the husband and wife was so entertaining. I could see it all! :) LOL! …and then came the unexpected, yet true-to-character actions of Mandy in your ending! Love this!

So cute and entertaining--I also enjoyed the back-and-forth between parents. And the ending brought a smile to my face. Good job.
This was great to read I love the ending. I know many parents get freaked out by The Talk. I've always found it should be a lifetime conversation answering questions honestly and being open about your viewpoint. Your story showed what so many parents go through. You did a great job. I loved picturing the potatoes flying across the room. Well done!

Your piece sure tells the truth about a tween's life. It is challenging to know what he or she is really saying.
