I was just really upset this morning, but I know that this is just a right of passage (for both of us) and it will pass. There is no way to explain to your daughter just how much you know and how you know it....they can't pay attention long enough to hear you and they still think they know everything and that you (thier mothers) have never lived a life outside of the here and now. I remember my mom saying things to me and me thinking in my peanut sized teenaged brain, "What is she talking about? How can she even begin to know what I'm going through?" I guess, what goes around comes around and I'm gettin' mine.

I just spoke with her (17dd) and told her to check her email because I sent her back a letter. She kind of groaned but I just told her that she had some misconceptions about me and H's feelings and needs to hear what I have to say in that regard. I also told her that writing her a note is the only way I know she will hear EVERYTHING I have to say and not just the first 4 words! Whatever, one day at a time. Her BF is coming over tonight and I'm sure they will flee the house and that's okay. Hopefully we will all grow from these experiences - she typically and mostly has always been a really great kid.

My 15dd just got dropped off at her new job! yeah!

Thanks for your words of encouragement.
