My Daughter Woke Up Boy Crazy.....


My oldest daughter woke up boy crazy....and she is driving me insane!!!! When did this happen? Did her hormones just kick in one morning and boom the world revolves around "hot guys"? She's almost thirteen and is quite disturbed that we will not allow her to have a boyfriend, talk on the phone with boys, or go to a boy's house...granted none of this has been close to happening...but she's preparing for the future..
She is hanging out with girls who are allowed to do these things... One friend in particular is dating an "older' boy... He's a junior in high school.... I ask you what mom would allow her thirteen year old daughter to date a 17 year old boy??? Not this mom... so at this present moment in time...my over the top hormonal child is pouting in her room - probably throwing darts at my face....because I am so mean... In her words, "I'm stifling her"..."I'm trying to keep her a child"..."I don't know what it's like to be a teenager" and the phrases go on.... I so remember saying and feeling the exact same things when I was her age.... crazy.
So as my blog says..."I've become my mother".... so true that comment is today.. But I'll tell you something.... I'd rather her hate me now...because I won't let her date....than have her hate me later because I did allow her to date.....
Being a mom is tough....

  1. Your daughter is blessed Kelly.
    And may God bless YOU for having the conviction to protect her innocence and purity.
    Would that that poor little 13 girl would have a mother like that.

  2. Amen, amen, and AMEN! Can I also high-five you? My son is thirteen and the attention he gets from girls is disturbing. I guess I better get use to it because it's a stage they must go through in order to transition OUT of it (smile). Sigh...what next?

  4. Having been through this 4 times I have to tell you it just get's worse. So strap on your big girl panties, it's a bumpy ride. But it will be okay and you will both survive.

  5. Thank You for being a loving mother!!!

    I work at an elementary school (ELEMENTARY) and I see girls (usually 5th and 6th grade) getting highlights, fake nails, and wearing makeup to impress their "boyfriends."

    The media is seriously emotionally harming the youth and making girls feel that Fake, Orange, anf Ditzy are the new beautiful :S
