    Thanks for the laugh. I have a 18 y/o girl, just finished her first year of college.

    I don’t know what I am thinking not letting her tell me how to function in life. She knows everything (at least in her mind).

    I’ve asked her if I am so stupid, how did I raise such a exceptionaly brilliant child, her response “I Don’t Know”… ugh

    BTW, love your blog…

    LOL, Laura. I have to use that question on Junior.

    I honestly think he believes that I would not be able to get through the day without his instruction :)

    You forgot the eyeroll! As I have told you my daughter is leaving to go off and start her adult life in college, the one thing I will not miss is the eyeroll. I am telling you the girl has a switch it is activated the minute my voice is heard. Mostly when I am saying no or can I have more information then we are just hanging out. Another teen thing I do not understand. Ask any teenager what they have planned and 9 times out of 10 it will ….hanging out.

    I hear you loud and clear. Either teenager and/or parent should come equipped with a helmut. People often say they want to have a baby. Do you notice no one ever says they really want to have a teenager?

    I knew my six year old was gifted. I just did not realize until this post he is really a teenager.

  6. Penny Says:

    I have just recently found you and just ahve to say… OMG you crack me UP!

    As a survivor of 3 teens and only 1 to go…I totally sympathize!

    Oh the elusive teenager…

  8. Laurie Says:

    LOL. @Liz I always forget the eyeroll. I think I’m so used to it that I don’t even see it anymore. Kinda like my wrinkles. I know they are there, but…wait. No. I know they are there.

    @Catherine I love that nobody ever says they want a teenager. So true. So true. And pretty sure that I’m using that as my mantra now, because “I’m calm, I’m calm” isn’t working.

    @Jessica, LOL. Just wait. My son thought I was stupid when he was 6. Then he thought I was smart. And we’ve come full circle. Only now, I’m REALLY stupid.

    @Penny, you rock. I know my limits and that’s one.

    @John, I only wish he was elusive. Apparently, he’s still upstairs. Although I only know that because the fridge was left open again.

    My daughter is 14yr. As much as I hate the I don’t know answer, I’ll take it over her insistence that everyone else is right and I’m wrong. I can tell her something and she’ll look at me like I’ve just grown two heads. I’ll then get her response of no, you’re wrong. (insert anyone’s name but mine) says that (information completely opposite of what I said). I can even have an encyclopedia open to the information as proof. At this time she will then go into to complete denial and state that the book is wrong, I’m wrong, and that so-and-so said such-and-such. I’ve got tennis elbow from throwing my hands up in frustration. Hope I can get through her teen years with some sanity intact.

    @April, I know, right? Everyone on the planet is smarter than me. Frankly, it’s a miracle I can function at all. Good luck with the sanity thing. So far it’s a downhill slide for me :)
