I officially became a mother of a teenager this month!!  He is still my sweet, smart considerate baby boy.. with just a few changes. Besides the crop of zits and hair in new places, big feet and hands and sudden spurt of height (almost taller than me already) and deeper voice, he sure can be GRUMPY!!  He always has thought he was smarter than me but now it's wayyyyy worse.. and scoffs at any suggestions I make. I tried to talk him into trying contacts but he wanted the quirky looking adult size glasses.  And it seems he has now made it his mission in life to see how gross and funny he can be.  I try not to laugh.. but it's hard not too.  Zane and I have alot of inside jokes.  Thankfully he is too busy to be into girls (yet.. at least he INSISTS he isn't)

Please pray.. because I don't know how I am going to take it when my girls turn into teenagers.. I am having a hard time loosing my little boy.

  1. Ah, yes, the "Mama is dumber than dirt phase."  Be patient.  Be available.  Be prepared to have him come to you to talk at the most inconvient times.  But stop what you are doing and listen as much as possible.  Say only enough to keep the conversation going.  Insist on hugs and kisses.  And soon he'll be coming and saying "Mama what do you think about this?"  (((((Mary)))))  -  Barbara

  2. im praying for you hard! only because i know i only have about 9 more years till my first one is a ragging crazy teenager...god help me when the rest of them follow!!


  3. Happy Birthday to your Zane! Loved the pictures, he looks like he's a lot of fun!

    God Bless

  4. He'll always be your little guy!  It's hard to deal with teenagers- they always know everything- but Mary, it's good that you two have inside jokes- keep that going (within limits of not being too totally disgusting : ) )  But at least you guys can find something togethr.  Hang in there- I know I'm not looking forward to my little guy turning older either- went through the terrible teens with my husband's kids.  Good news though Mary- they turn out fine!!!  God Bless!  Carolyn
