I Can't Believe We All Lived Through It

Last night was the official holiday concert.  It was pretty well done.  I have an attitude about fine arts and homeschoolers.  We (as a group) tend to let each other by with less than the best.  And clap for it.  There is no excuse to hold a lower standard than the world around us.  If we can't do it with excellence, we need to leave it alone.

I digress.

I have been more than forthcoming about the girls crushes. It is really none of my business. I tell you, so I don't meddle too much in their lives.  Must be just a homeschool mom temptation.

What I haven't told you about, is that there is a boy who has a crush on one of them.  He is quiet.  We've known the family since we moved back here. Neither of the girls seem to be aware.  They can't see past...well,


Clearly, I can't say anything.  That is why I have the blog.

It sucked to be a teen.  I forgot while I was wishing I could go back to not being responsible for paying the bills.


Parenting teens is not as fun as they make it seem in the books and movies.

The teen years scare me. Everything my boys will go through and knowing I'll have to walk that fine line between protecting them and being overprotective.

I just wrote about this exact same thing today - the challenges with my tween and how I'm oh-so-worried about when they get to the teen years.

I am not at all looking forward to the teen years. I was a really good kid and very close to my mom. I'm hoping the same thing happens with Big Girl. I hear horror stories and I'm just not sure I can handle that.

I was an absolute horror to my mom in my teens. Seriously, I was so very bad. We laugh about it now though. :p

Not looking forward to the teen years, my daughter is already wild, at just 9 months!

Oh man, I wish I could skip the teen years altogether!
