Oh how having a teenager is fun! I love the mood swings, the mystery and the chaos. I never know which kid I am going to get and how I should talk. The ups and downs of his moods are crazier than a roller coaster.
Of course I am currently the worst parent ever since I don't let him do whatever he wants. AND, OF COURSE- I am the only parent he knows that is SOOOO strict and has rules.
His big thing is that he wishes I didn't care so much. Why can't I be like the other parents and let him do what he wants.
Oh- if only life was that easy. I know I am not the only parent who has rules and heck yeah I care! I carried you in my womb and my world has revolved around you since that moment. Geeesh!!! I am ready for these days to be done and in the past.
School is the best subject now. Why do homework??? Things that are simple turn into the hardest and most difficult challenges.
I wish we were closer to family so that we weren't the only ones trying to guide him. It's us against him he thinks. He doesn't even want to travel with us. SERIOUSLY- you don't want to go to Italy because that requires you spending time with us.
UGH! Each day is a different battle. Each day it is a different winner.
