Trashy Shorts: Teenage Angst

“Ugh.  You are the most ANNOYING PARENT IN THE WORLD,” my 16-year-old daughter said to me over the weekend.

And then I realized that I don’t have a 16-year-old daughter and that this was said—quite definitively, actually—by my 6-year-old son, and that the hubs and I might need to brace ourselves for the next 12 years before he goes away to college. 

They might be long ones.


  1. This is why I'm in no rush to have kids. Sure, you have 12 years, but even if I started today, I'd have 19 years. And that's a long time of putting up with "you're annoying" and "you're a stupid farthead" before I get the satisfaction of kicking them out.
