Being A Parent Sucks When....

You find out that you kid has found new ways to be sneaky..

You read what your kid says about you to others...

You wake up one day and your sweet girl has turned into Lizzie Borden..

You have lost count on how many times you have taken away her cellphone.. IPod... computer...

You realize that you are yelling and she is yelling....

You realize that Respect is a 7 letter word.... and not an action...

You see your kid's skype status and reads like a rapper lyric - I'm Not a F***'n Ho...

You catch your kid in yet another lie....

You catch yourself counting the days until she's out of the house..

You pray that her grades are good enough so she can go AWAY to college...

You go to bed and can't sleep because you are so worried that you really screwed up as a parent..

Today is a bad day......


  1. BIG HUGS!!!! I'm sorry you are having a poopy day. Tomorrow will be better:-) I know how you feel, I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat asking myself "Am I screwing up my kids education?" Which then goes to "OMG I'm completely messing him up!" As mother's we have our bad days and need Mama Time Outs, that's when a trip to Starbucks ensues;-) Hang in there, you are doing a fabulous job!

  2. Oh, man. I'm sorry. I am not looking forward to the teenage years. I can't imagine the hurt I'd feel if any of the above happens with either of my children.I hope you two can have a good heart to heart, and somehow make things a little better. In the meantime....just pray.

  3. Oh no Kelly. I stopped in to say hello and totally feel for you.
    My worst fear is finding out that my daughter is not who I think she is. And blaming myself for it.
    You sound like such a great mama ~~ hang in there. And if it's any consolation AT ALL -- there are days that I feel like I've done nothing but yell the entire day. Like yesterday for example..... sigh.

  4. You are not alone... I have 3 teenagers (and we homeschool), so I have a lot of time with them to... umm... lose it.

    Thanks for visiting me at A Season for All Things.
