That's hilarious! I love clouds, by the way. Great shot.

P.S.

I'm a teenager and I don't think we're that bad...sometimes:P

Live long enough to cause them the same grief they gave you :-)

I've survived 3 so I know whereof you speak.

Hi Debi, try and look to the future when they are grown and wonderful. I had four within seven years and during their teenage years, (late teens are way better) it helped to keep a sense of humor.

Thank you all for your support. Ya know, she's basically a good kid but there are days - times - I seriously consider moving and changing my name.

(Michaela, you are a joy - my teen could learn from you!)

Michaela said...

Thanks :D

Oooh...been there, done that. Fifteen was rough for son and me, and his assorted other parents (biological and step). Happily, we all came through that year, I apologized to my mother for having been a teenager once, and now my son is a 22 year old (on Thursday) who think his mother is reasonably cool. So hang in there, dear heart!

Ah Michaela, you are most welcome.

Thanks, Jodi. My teen is 16...excuse me, turned 17 yesterday. Today dawned happier, but I'm still watching my back - LOL! My mother and I share a wonderful, warm relationship now but I'll bet even me (the perfect child, ha!) gave her some gray hairs. Think I'll walk across the street and share a glass of wine with her and say "Thanks."
