HOLY hell!!!
Flashback to 1999, sitting on the exam table, spending three painful hours shoving a head and body the size of a small watermelon out of my 19 year old womb.  Ooohhss and aaahs at how precious the little fingers are and the little toes.  The tiny fingernails and eyelashes.  Even his poop couldn't stink.  I nursed him and played with him and doted all of my love and attention on him.  Never in a MILLION years did I expect this Perfect Child to grow into this.... this ABOMINATION known as Teenage Boy.  No ONE bothered to prepare me for the constant whining, moaning, complaining and attitude.  NO ONE sat me down and had the Welcome to Parenting a Teenager talk.  Not One Single Person had the decency to take me by the hand, set me down, hand me a hot piping cup of tea and break it to me gently.  That TEENAGERS. SUCK.  I don't remember being a 1/3 of this nasty as a child.  Although my mom would've wiped that attitude off my face with the back of her hand.  Smack. And repeat.  That doesn't work? Smack. And repeat.  I love him.  But he turned 13 on Saturday. And he Instantly Changed.  He went to sleep still kinda childish.  Woke up with Attitude on one shoulder and Asshole on the other one.  And I don't even know how to deal with it.  Seriously contemplating taking up smoking, or maybe drinking wine.  He starts in on his brother if they're within 10 feet of each other.  He will literaly walk in the same room as him and just kick him and hit him and call him names and do anything that will piss the little guy off.  For no reason!  His mouth is like an open floodgate of crap.  And if I try and talk? He interepts me about three words in "Hey, HEy, HEY!" Until he gets the point across that HE'S trying to talk.  And by God he's gonna talk too!

(As I stop to read this to hubby Butch, Austin listens and is rolling on the floor giggling, as Xav is screaming at him "THAT'S YOU, DUMBASS!! She's talking about YOU!")

OMW thats my knucklehead... except that instead of fighting with a sibling he fights with me!
Asshole + attitude = teenager. Very apt.

I love hearing that I'm not the Only One! I always feel that I'm either being a) overly cynical of them or b) overly strict or c) blowing it out of proportion.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
