Angie,There is a military maxim that goes something like this: no battle plan survives intact the first contact with the enemy. I would submit there is a similar rule for parenting: no parental calendar will survive intact first contact with a teenager. Imagine the abject tedium of a child who followed each of your dictates unerringly and without the slightest objection. Talk about taking the joy (and horror ) out of parenting :-)DeanHttp://leftcoastguy.com
I read your post over at mommy blogs.... and it was well written as always.... but I would like to take a second to give a shout out to all you single mommybloggers out there "looking good ladies....!" Finally a site for us fellas..... anyways come on over and check out my writing over at Iswearthebabiesnotminebloggers.
Dean, I've realized that as a mom you cry when you don't get any time to yourself, feel sorry for yourself when they don't need you, then just when you get used to not being needed something will come up and you're right back in the thick of it. I'm going in search of big sunglasses and a trench coat tonight for my escape. Steve, I was over at your Iswearthebabiesnotminebloggers.com the other day. I have to say you're a fine looking bunch of playas, but you won't catch me within 100 yards of a man who has active gear! LOL
I can't imagine an empty nest. I still have about twenty years or so left. I feel for you, though. I get choked up when my daughter gets out of the car and walks to the front door of the school on her own.maybe have another kid?
Wag, If you were closer I would slap the taste right out of your mouth! :)
