Don’t you wish your mom was a blogger while you were growing up? So you could see exactly how it all went tits up? Yeah, me neither lol I already want to hit someone when she says how much my daughter is like me or I’m getting some kind of payback. ARGHHH
Well my oldest teen is going to drive me mad. We had a big issue come up a couple of weeks ago and I might be able to blog about it in a bit but it’s still really raw. In other words, when I think of it I’m still pissed and my feelings are hurt. She went so over the line I can’t post about it. My handling it? AMAZING, thank goodness for friends to see shit happen & continue to diffuse a situation. It takes a damn village, believe me.
But now I have a new worry. Tonight I stuck with telling her she couldn’t go to sonic for happy hour. For one thing she doesn’t need the calories, for another she spent her gas money way too quick in July. Long story, her grandparents (my parents) are giving her $100 each month for a year for gas money as her bday present. OMG, what a big relief this was on us. However, my daughter, of cours has already forgotten her mistakes from the last few weeks because that new payment hit her account. Easy for me to remind her. And here the hell begins again.
Not total hell, but a new issue I figured out. She wanted to go to sonic for happy hour. I told her no. Money is tight and I knew she had $11 in her account. I filled her account up the last time & we were on good terms before that happened. She said, no, she got her gas money. I gave a quick no and explanation. Dad stepped in to try a longer explanation. I could feel him caving so for once I stepped in. We don’t do that against each other, but she wasn’t going to work this one.
I told her no, how much money did she blow last check? I made her answer that. Then I told her no again that this money needed to last for her gas not for happy hour ice cream drinks. yada-yada I suck, typical, usual response.
However, she’s now pissed off and showing it. She does like to bake when she’s cranky, emotional and obviously now when she’s pissed. The hard part is, how healthy is it? She doesn’t eat a ton when she bakes it so I’m leaning towards it being a decent outlet. If she was eating a bunch at a time then I guess that should be a different thing. Healthy outlets for your emotions are a good idea. Honestly, this whole baking thing is an alley she should hit. She rarely uses a recipe and she’s only 16 lol I just figured out this was an outlet she uses and I told hubby. He made a comment and got hit, I don’t even remember what he said.
I’m done holding back. My oldest has now pushed me to the point I have to talk it out. OMG the hideous person I must have been at that age. I can only imagine. Guess we’ll talk about my senior year a lot as I bitch it out.
