We had a small celebration for the Junior cert results this week. People thought we needed our heads examined – 20+ excited 16 year olds = disaster.
Well no, it wasn’t a disaster. What it was was exactly what we hoped it would be – a party of kids having a good time. Noisy? Yes. Messy? A little. Disaster? Definitely not.
I think 16 year olds get a bit of bad press. Maybe all our teens get bad press. They’re actually all quite sweet. From now on it’s definitely the benefit of the doubt in this house.
