"Did I not exist as a tween?" I think to myself as I flip the plastic pages of my parents' family photo album. One of the few photos that exists of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one, that head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. My teeth are slightly too big for my face and my hair isn't combed. Ah, sweet innocence.
Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the darnedest things. But those tween/teen ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-14, they aren't children anymore, but aren't quite teens.
