Sometimes I wonder what happens at home w/these girls. I said there would be a time limit for bed because we have to be at the ball field tomorrow at 10:30. I thought T would die. I said 12 & no later, if there was no game tomorrow I wouldn't care but since we all have to get up early that makes a difference.


Wanted Pizza brought in but I'm doing DiGiornos. T told me she doesn't eat much & her mom is happy because it fdoesn't cost her alot at the grocery store.

I guess having friends sleep over is actually a reality check - just when your child is convinced that you're out of touch, you meet some of the friends and learn that you're the only one who is in touch!!!


Have fun!!

Dee don't feel bad. Eli was sharing with me some of the stories that one of his friends was telling at the lunch table. She was talking about one of her MOM's many drunken home comings. Apparently this mom shares the names of all the drinks with her daughter. And, come home so drunk that she and her daughter laugh about the fact that she calls the toilet the "Porcelain God". Am I the only one that thinks at the age of 14 & 15 you shouldn't be doing these things in front of your children. And, that even though I was a hippie. I pulled the stops when I had children. What is up with the families of today? I don't guess I'm one of those parents that will ever be in now. My other kids friends use to think I was so cool. Now, I must be an old foggie. LOL One of those parents that I never wanted to be when I was a teenager. Oh well, good luck with the girls. I'm just trying to make it through this boy. And, trying to make it through alive. I do pray a lot more now than I use to. That's a great thing though. So, know that I'm praying for all of us on this board. It's like this generation is so very different. And, so are their parents. God help us all!!
Lovingly & Prayerfully,

Dh didn't like this friend at all. he found her to be a compulsove liar. her stories kept changing to suit whatever. She never even changed her clothes. She doesn't like school, rules or sleeping in a bed. Eats nothing but junk food & said they don't do the church thing.


I'm beginning to understand why Nik's math teacher cinfided in me she doesn't like or approve of the kids Nik is hanging with. She said none of them care about school, grades or anything important. I think after this sleepover I'm beginning to understand. Then this moring I checked Nik's facebook & couldn't believe some of the stuff on her newsfeed. I had no idea 13 yr old girls could talk so raunchy. Nik ignores all of that & doesn't comment.


I'm sure she'll find her group of friends, it takes time. Nik likes to be involved & join things at school & none of her friends even want to go to school so I'm sure as shes there longer & next yr starts she'll find friends w/similar likes as she has.
