We got a preview of what it’s gonna be like to have a teenager, as Momo came back from camp last week an absolute mess of grouchiness and mood swings.

It must have been hard on her to go from five days of jam-packed adventure back to the boredom, but emotional safety, of being home. Like when you get back from vacation and feel depressed, combined with how kids always let out all their impulses at home after keeping it together all day at school.

She was scheduled to go to a day camp the week after, but honestly, she really needed to stay home and apply video games to her brain. I get it. I totally get it. There’s nothing like the pleasure of shutting your brain off and zoning out after you’ve been On for days. I used to have to schedule a recovery day coming home from big conventions, and really, it’s kind of the same thing.
