The PMS Monster

I was never this bad, was I? In my early teens? Naw, I couldn't have been. My poor father!!

I left my sweet, wonderful 12-year old at her big sister's house on Sunday for a visit. I picked her up yesterday. I SWEAR my eldest pulled the old switcheroo on me. There is NO WAY the disrespectful, nasty, mean, selfish, angry, sobbing kid I brought home yesterday was my dear, sweet,
sunshine-y little baby. No way. I want my child back!!!!

This is what I get to enjoy for a week out of every month until she's old enough to move out? Oy!!! I mean, I know I've been praying for patience lately. But this is going a little too far, don't you think, God?


  1. I arrived here via dAAve, signed on as a follower w/o having read your blog. Talk about RISKY --grin!

    Patience is a virtue. The opposite--for me--is frustration and inner turmoil. Guess I do have a choice, after all. But I do not always choose what I really want, need...the correct one.

    Peace, to all of us!

  2. LOL! I'm so glad I had only boys! One of me was enough.

  3. My oldest daughter was SUCH a hard teen (that's putting it mildly)...but lo and behold she turned out better than I ever imagined as an adult. Hang in there!!

  4. I am NOT looking forward to those days. The 13 y/o already has enough of an attitude as it is. YIKES!!!

    I was that way as a teen. Vitamin B is a miracle vitamin, if she's not taking it already.
