That is a never-ending battle in this age. I work in a high school and it gets very, very old. Cute story. I thought it was going in a different direction - maybe a bad memory from her past. I liked this direction much better:)

Pick your battles, Mama:)
I wish more moms WOULD fight this battle. I loved this story - the little details made the scene come to life and I could tell it was real. (If not for the author personally, for mothers and others across the country.)
I enjoyed this--a minor battle in our house too. Perfect voice and tone for the story.
At first I thought your MC had been invaded by an intruder, but she was just caught "underwears!" I love the inner struggle that she goes through - even while feeling her efforts at upbringing were being "waisted," but I loved the last line! Great work.
Wow! Sara, you presented the view of the mother of a teen-ager perfectly. Excellent characterization here.
Are you sure you're not older than you look? You certainly know the battle in a mom's mind.
Well done as only a "pro" could do. Your title was simple, yet "covered" it all.
Congratulations on your First Place win!!
Wow Sara! Super congrats on your win! Awesome take on the topic. Nice.
You made me smile! (actually I smiled quite a few times!) :) I love the way you wove this. Super congrats, Sawa!
This is FANTASTIC, Sara!

I can see this in a women's magazine. You should sent it out.

"mother-smother" Ooops! Ouch!

Creative and fun...and a little prickly, too. :)

Super congrats on a super piece!
