Bleah, what is it they say about how teenage girls can suck all the air out of a room when they come in?

Teenaged drama is no reflection whatsoever on your parenting.

NOT looking forward to teenaged girl drama. Hang in there! If it makes you feel any better, I didn't visit colleges until I decided which one I wanted to attend. Then I only visited that one before finalizing it. The physical campus had very little to do with my decision on a college.

B - asparagus and mushroom omelet, coffee
S - granola bar, yogurt
L- curry chicken salad
D - Asian stir-fry

My oldest daughter has field day today and I will be out there with the kids. No gym for me today since my middle child is still home sick. Her temp in only 100, which means she could go to school, but I wanted her to have one more day of rest. I don't know why temps are not considered "fever" unless they're higher than 101. When did that start? She actually feels pretty good and is playing outside today. But she gets tired quickly and feels hot to the touch.

My daughter is really cool and respectful to others. One instructor told me this ski season how his little daughter loved my daughter and looked up to her and that he thought she was a great kid. Really? My daughter knew him but didn't know his daughter but apparently made a good impression. I know I'm not a bad mom, but I wish I could appreciate her more when she's moody. It driver me crazy!

Yeah, you'll have three in it at once! I think part of the internal drama is her brother looking at some high end colleges that she won't be and starting to feel insecure about it. I told her she could do as well if she wanted which I think made matters worse.

lol I have two teenage daughters and so does my sister and the drama surrounding them all is unreal. I don't know what happened to them but somehow after about age 10 they all became drama queens. Every tiny little thing somehow turns into something major.

My oldest daughter has a job and is taking classes at the community college so she doesn't have as much time to drive me crazy anymore so if I were you I'd definitely sign your daughter up for volunteer work or a job (if she is old enough).

My older sister is still here visiting so I don't really have plans other than to spend some time with her today. Hubby wants me to help weed the flower beds so I'm thankful I have a reason not to help. lol

I assume it gets better when they're older?
