Diane: (in 2008 about watching her daughter and stepdaughter grow up) It's scary! Poignant. Challenging. Rewarding. Frustrating. Sometimes I believe that opposable thumbs were invented so teenage girls could use text messaging. And now boys are starting to come into the picture. I get questions about that, and it just knocks my socks off. On the outside, I act calm about it, but inside, I'm freaking out. These are girls, you understand, who are growing up watching shows like Gossip Girl and movies like Sex and the City. My daughter saw that movie and was like, "Mom, don't go! You can't handle all the sex!"
