my boy turned 13 yesterday.
I am afraid...
And so you should be! Teenagers are scary.
Hope he had a great day.... and I hope his 'Yummy Mummy' is proud of the boy.
I like that yummy mummy thing. lol..
he's a good kid... no, he's a great kid. but man, there is attitude to spare now.
Your going to start hating Friday and Saturday nights...keep the coffee warm.
i am in such trouble.
and he's a head taller than i am already, which is NOT good. well it IS good, but it's really really weird.
don't be afraid. i just spent the weekend with 20 kids between the ages of 13-15, and they were great. IIRC, i was a much nicer person to people who weren't my parents at that age. i think it's because i trusted my parents to love me no matter how poorly i behaved, and poor behavior is a part of fitting into one's big boy pants.
teens need to push away from the parental units, and that's scary for them and us. he, and you, will come through just fine- it just doesn't feel that way on a regular basis.
so the fact that he now treats me like my IQ dropped is normal??
those 'are you kidding me???' looks are truly amazing things.
i know he's really a good kid. i hope he stays that way. he's already talking about driving.
i am NOT happy.
Happy Birthday to your little man!
i laughed, i cried... it was a cornucopia of emotions.
I feel your plethora of impending parental pubescent pain!
