This is my niece...she's 14. She's going to be 15 in November.
I remember when she was 6 and the thing
that troubled her the most was finding an audience
to watch the dance routine that she made up.
This is my nephew...he turned 17 this summer.
I remember when he was 9 and the thing that
troubled him the most was his 6 yr old sister.
I think we all know who this is...but just in case...
This is my baby girl...she will be 2 in October. And the thing that
troubles her the most is teething and not getting her way.
The troubles that my niece and nephew have now are completely different than they were when they were little. Now they are plagued with girl problems and boy problems. School problems and friend problems. Bad hair days, acne, dating, girl pressure, boy pressure, peer pressure, popularity, having what's "in style", iPhones, cars, "you're grounded", sports, and the biggest problem of their young life...learning who they are in this world.
And the problems of teething, wanting her way, potty training,
and learning to eat good that my baby girl is
plagued with and therefore I am plagued with...
Wait a minute...
Are they really even problems?
Ugh...no. I don't believe they are.
I'M NOT READY FOR TEENAGERS!!
Luckily...my baby girl has two great cousins...
that are traveling the rough road of Teenageville before her and
they can help lead and guide her in the path that she should go.
Cause Lord knows I'm probably already gonna be in
Crazyville never, ever, ever, NEVER, to return!
Trying to prepare for the inevitable,
P.S. Niece and nephew...if you lead her and guide her in the wrong path...I'll haunt you from Crazyville for the rest of your days! But I know you would never do that. I'm just being the obsessive compulsive mother that I am. I love you both to pieces!
