You answered yes to a lot of those questions. It is fun to see what people have done, especially the ones your daughter have done that you don't know about. (motorcycle, for example.)

mom don't worry - luke spencer made me. i didn't like it. it was his friend's moto. i was ticked at him for making me do it, too. don't you worry - i surely didn't enjoy it.
