I Do Not Like

Migraine Headaches ~ I think you already knew that I get them and that I do not like them

Teenage Boys who complain about mowing the lawn. Lawns that they haven't mowed in three weeks. Yes, not one or two but three weeks. Especially when this is the only thing he is supposed to do.

Having to show said teenage son the parts of the lawn that he missed. The edges. Most of them. Almost all of them. What ... he thinks I won't notice. I look out the window every day. I'm talking small front lawn. Not the back but the front.

Having to have a talk with said son about how he can not talk back to me about having to remow the edges.

That he thinks he can tell me how he has freedom of speech. Oh no he doesn't. I told him he could take his freedom of speech arse and find somewhere else to live. And, as this teenage boys mouth was still flapping away ... I told him several other things.

That he is so lazy. Where did he come from ?

I have to tell him to do this or that or anything. He's sixteen not six.

I know that this talk will have done no good. He doesn't learn from my life talks. Only this time it wasn't a life talk it was a do it without words coming from your mouth talk.

I'm sure I will have more I do Not Like days ... and I will share them with you.

As my teenage son would say ... Freedom of Speech ...

Yes, teenage boys. I'm glad mine is grown.

I have nephews that age and it absolutely comes with the territory (part of growing up, I guess). But it's no fun to deal with!

I'll stick with my 13-yr-old Tigger (boy) and 4-yr-old Bambi (girl). Sometimes they'll hiss or growl when it's time to go back inside or when it's time for their parents to feed them before said parents wake-up time.

I'm very happy with my "teenybopper pugs" LOL I was quite a hellion as a teen...maybe I scared myself into not wanting kids! :)

Now that my daughters have left home, they have mellowed out some. One was always calm (listened to everything I said, then did what she intended right from the start), and the other was always looking for an argument. It is amazing, but they DO grow up!
As for the migraines - Booo!!!! Hisss!!!!!!

I remember being a teenager and truly hating (this sentiment is not really being expressed strongly enough by me)the cutting of the lawn!

Webster said...

In the interest of full disclosure, I don't have kids (thank God). That said, what Dr. Phil would say is: "What is his currency?" In other words, what privilege do you provide him with (other than room and board, of course) that can be used as collateral for mowing the lawn? Taking the iPod, or the TV, or whatever will remove the need for words.

I hope you come to an understanding. We're just in the middle of Summer.

We're sorry that you had a bad day. Tomorrow will be better again! And teenager are the most dificult thing in the world we are told.

I raised 2 teenage daughters and they are not much different than teenage boys as far as doing things. They are now 25 and 28 and a joy to be around-so there is hope!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Kids. Their priorities are never the same as ours. Still, they do need to do a few things to earn their keep. Nobody gets a free ride in this world.

We only have two boys in our house. Our Dad, and King. BUT, we do have a 3 year old little human sister and her Terrible Twos carried over to her threes! YIKES! We think our Mommy is gonna have her hands full!

Hang in there & count your blessings when you can!

Tuck said...

I have a teenage niece that also thinks she has freedom of speech. Some of things she says should never be spoken aloud by anyone...

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
