Awkward Adolescence

It happens to all of us. One day we're cute and fluffy, and the next we're preening at ourselves and wondering where it all went wrong.

Our feet look too big.

We have bad hair days.

Our heads just don't seem to match the proportions of our bodies.

Our noses look funny.

Our necks are scrawny.

Some parts develop faster than other parts, leaving us feeling mismatched.

It feels like everyone is staring at us.

Only the blonde chicks seem to go through this stage unruffled.

Sometimes we rebel. We engage in scandalous behavior and might even go for two different hair colors.

Thankfully, this stage is fleeting. We all get over it eventually. And once we're on the other side, it doesn't look like such a bad age to be.

Ha! This is wonderful! I took pictures of my teenage chicks just yesterday thinking that there must be some way to capture the huge awkwardness they are in right now. You said it just perfectly! Thanks for the laugh!
