This Makes All The Pain of Childbirth Worth It

by Marinka on March 24, 2012

This weekend my 13 year old daughter, Young Ladrinka and I are leaving for a weeklong trip. Just the three of us. Without Husbandrinka or my stepson.

This is the heartwarming conversation we had at the breakfast table this morning.

Me: I’m so glad that we’re taking this trip together, just the three of us. I’m really looking forward to it.

Teenage Daughter: Me too, except I wanted to go by myself, so I’m sort of bummed that I’m going to have two extra people dragging along.

Brings a tear to the eye.

Sort of like last night when I told my 11 yr old (he’s mature for his age, don’t judge me!) that when he finished the Hunger Games we’d go see the movie together, just the two of us.
Him: you mean without ?
Me: yes, just you and I, how about that?
Him: good, because I don’t like him.
Me: oh, so you do like me?

I’m scared for my future…I have a feeling my daughter will be JUST like this.

But, HAVE FUN! Ha!

I picked up the seventeen year old from her boyfriend’s house this week and the first words out of her mouth were, “I don’t want to go home.”

Validation is overated.

Been there. Just pack an 80’s mix tape, mom jeans and a fanny pack to use as emergency ammunition.

Ps-love your blog and look forwar to all the vacation stories!

Tell her you cleared out a space in the trunk so she can be by herself. It’s not child abuse if they ask for it.

Ah, the teenage years.

You SO don’t need me to do this, but I just wanted you to know I listed you on my blog as one of my faves under my Versatile Blogger award. If you like, stop by my blog to check it out.

You never talk about your stepson. How old is he? Does he stay with you?

HAAAAA!!!! The difference between teens today and when we were young is that they’re just now so ballsy. I’m kind of envious they say out loud what we only dared to think….

Oh teenagers are just so kind and sweet.

I bet that when you two go shopping you have the privelege to hold her bags? And get to pay for the clothes? Aren’t teenagers the best…
