To the mean girls….. thank you
January 12, 2018 at 4:34 pm 0
To the mean girls who feel like they need to constantly harass and make hurtful comments to my daughter..... thank you! Thank you for teaching her that life is not easy, people are not always nice but that doesn't stop you. Thank you for teaching her to be the better person, even when it would be so easy to hurt that person back or put them down too. Thank you for showing her how strong she really is. Thank you for teaching her the true concept of letting things roll off your back. Thank you for teaching her to surround herself by the people who make her happy and not the ones who make you sad. Thank you for teaching her that she is not the words that people may say about her but she is anyone she wants to be. Thank you for teaching her how to control her temper. Thank you for teaching her that she doesn't need everybody to like her to be happy and vibrant. and most of all THANK YOU for teaching her she is strong enough to stand on her own feet and no matter what you say she will succeed. I hope in all your mean words, horrible actions that you too can find something to be thankful for.

Why do I feel so inadequate ….. and should i care?
January 7, 2018 at 8:09 pm 0
On most days, I think I am a pretty good mom. I put my kids first every day, every night, pretty much every moment of my life and I am good with that. People yell me all the time to make sure i have "me" time but on most days I like my me time to include my kids. Lately, the reality of the teenage years has sunk in. My older daughter has made the walk into the teenage years smooth. The middle daughter is really pushing me away. I hate it. It is not every day, and not all the time, but more and more her preference is to talk to her friends. She locks her door and chats with friends, watches netflix and is just self consumed. No longer are the days where she is doing handstands and back handsprings all night in front of us. Or snuggled on the couch with me. It feels like every time I say something to her I annoy her. She is hot headed with a little temper and if it isn't what she wants to hear or do she gives you attitude. While i know this is just the teenage years, it is really hurtful to me, as a mom who invests all of my time into making her happy. Does she think i am that horrible of a mom, am i really that inadequate, and at the end of the day why do i care? I am her mom, not her best friend, but for some reason all in the same it makes me a little sad. I hate the teenage years and it has only just begun.
