Whoo Lawd.. you ever had your patience tested to the nth degree?? My daughter is a walking set of flippy floppy emotions.. it's like watching a tennis match somedays. This morning I swear it took all the strength I have in my body to not yell "Oh come the eff ON!! Are you serious??" Here's a prime example why all parents should just put all teenagers on a remote island until age 19.. then they can come back and join society as "normal" people and not the brain damaged emotional creatures they are now.
She woke up this morning and began her day with cereal (I buy that good stuff N0days0ff.. Cocoa Puffs BABY!) and then she gets dressed.. somewhere in the midst of coming up the stairs her mood switches from "I'm cool" to "Insane crazy teenager"
Today's dilemna.. the PE coach wants her to get in the pool first thing in the morning.. now most of you probably are siding with her at this point because of the "black girl" hair issue.. and for the yt folks - she would come out of the pool like this:
So yeah I understand this, but the attitude doesn't stop there.. oh no.. that would be too much like right! She then has beat box air blowing fit with her books.. you know the "spshhhh" and "argghhh" and "maaaaaaan" but she's very careful to not look at anyone for fear of a quick backhanded round off cross her bottom lip. Now a new dilemna surfaces.. not only does she not want to get in the pool, but she doesn't want to take a shower in the gym because they can see her...and throughout it all I'm just sitting there looking at her like she is officially 51/50
I mean.. if you already have to get in the pool.. you're wet.. why is taking a shower with all girls in there such a big deal? They have the same thing you do. But all this does is bring tears.. because now I'm an insensitive mother.. which brings me back to my original point.. "Oh come the eff ON!! Are you serious?"
My Friends Are Authors And You Should Buy Their Books - I love when I have people around me that are brave enough and diligent enough to do something that I want to do but haven't dedicated myself enough to make...
