For the first time I'm linking up with Kat at 3 Bedroom Bungalow to let in Crazy Town for the Dear So and So. I love her letters to all and sundry on a weekly basis and this week I found I have something (or somethings) to say.
Not every mother and daughter go through hell during the teenage years. Just because DD is a girl with a strong character it does not mean we are heading for melt-down within the next 10-12 years. And even if we are, is it really necessary to warn me of it gleefully every time we meet? I'm sorry if your experience with your teenager was less than pleasant. I think there's usually a reason behind adolescent turmoil over and above the sensitive hormonal changes. It would be far more useful to look for the causes and try to alleviate them a bit.
I realize that now DD has smoothly and successfully graduated into her own bed, your previous prediction that I'd never get her out of my bed is hitting you hard. However, you could just try to look on the joyful side of motherhood and celebrate our happiness.
Just a thought.
Mother And Daughter Doing Just Fine Thank You
Dear Laid Back Picture Framer,
When you have had my picture for over five months I really don't think you are in a position to lecture me about not leaving my name when I phone to speak to you and get the answering service.

Dear Queue Jumper,
When you momentarily visit the queue to tell me, "I'm after you, OK?" And then go off to finish your shopping, it's not OK. I also have other stuff I could be doing instead of standing in the queue for half an hour. Unless you want to pay me for keeping your place, when you return I shall be pretending I don't speak Hebrew and I don't think I've ever seen you before.

I've had a lot of fun getting this lot off my chest. Please pop over to Kat's to see the other entries on the linky.
I Know I'm Not Perfect But I Try Not To Be Obnoxious
Thanks for this.
