“You do no want to peak at 13!”

I used to tell Mutant Ninja Teen Daughter #1 that she was not supposed to be the most popular girl in her class at the age of 13.  I would always say, “You do not want to peak at 13! If you peak at 13, you will not continue to grow and become a more interesting and more beautiful adult” I would then continue to explain that all the girls I knew growing up who peaked at 13 and 14 did not grow up to have very interesting lives. When I would tell her this, she used to declare that I did not understand what she was going through! Now MN Teen Daughter #1 tells her younger sister half in jest (mocking me) and half serious the same mantra, “You do not want to peak at 13!”
