Let me start by saying I love my teens. Surprisingly they don't drive me crazy. Yet. I've been on guard waiting, watching for them to turn into teen fools. You know, belligerent, forgetful, obnoxious, smelly etc. ie. Fools. My oldest did that somewhat so I am prepared.
My 14& 15 are either delayed in that department or heaven forbid not going to become teen fools.......HaHa That's a good one. I'm delusional. Of course they will. It's just a matter of time.
My 15 year old didn't want to turn in Dr. note this morning from being sick yesterday. To me it's a $110 piece of paper saying he didn't feel good yesterday so don't turn us in to the truancy dept.....
Why didn't he want to turn it in? Good question. Who the hell knows. He said he'd do it Monday. Nope, I said "you'll do it today and then you won't have to worry about it".
He got pissed and slammed out the door. Threw his new cereal box toy pen in the bushes. (who knew that teens still love those cheap toys in cereal??)
Now he's texting me saying he doesn't know why it was a big deal (it wasn't. He made it a big deal.) And that maybe he shouldn't go on overnight camping trip tonight. His attempt at reverse psychology? Silly boy. I've got years of that ahead of him. What a twit. I think I'll call his bluff on that one. That will make him think a little and maybe just maybe the almighty Mom is a tad on to him.
Hmmmmm. I don't have girls so I'm putting this one in the "Drama" category.
Or better yet Let The TEEN FOOL games begin..........
