Last Christmas, I bought a mother/daughter journal for me and Alicia. It had rave reviews on Amazon and was meant mainly to open lines of communication. Considering her age and everything, I thought it would be fun to try.

She turned her nose up at it and refused. So the journal got set aside and forgotten.

This morning, I went downstairs, where Alicia promptly thrust the journal into my hands and said, "We're doing this." I'm not sure why. When I asked, she turned it around with, "Don't you want to?" Of course, I do, and I didn't want to ruin a good thing so I dropped asking.

I have a feeling this is all brought on by my barrage of questions about her latest boyfriend. I was telling Craig about stuff last night as she was getting ready for bed, and she was eavesdropping, so there's a very good chance she heard me comment much of what I said yesterday in my journal, about liking the person she's growing into, etc. She also might feel that if I ask her stuff in the journal, it'll stop me from asking in person and making her feel embarrassed. It's probably a combination of the two, lol.

Either way, I'm not arguing about it. I'm just glad she wants these lines of communication open. It makes me feel like I've done something right. :)
