    So I'm majorly struggling with my 14 year old

    daughter. She's the splitting image of me at that age and that scares me even more lol. But she has a good head on her shoulders and isn't a "bad" kid. She is just easily influenced and wants to be likes by all. She recently joined the cheer team and has now had two back to back...

    I Am Annoyed With My Teenager

    Almost A Grandpa...

    I have 8 kids, with twins on the way. 3 of them are teenagers. My son Bentley is 15 and has always been the "good one." He rarely ever got into trouble and he is usually just a happy, goofy kid. The last few months he'd been acting a little weird. He seemed quieter and moodier...

    Two Great Girls

    My eldest will be off to college in September, and I'm going to miss her so much. At least I have another one (age 15) to focus on. Then what? More cats, I guess!

    Thanks For Nothing Orkin!

    The Orkin man came today, says I've got Teenagers, but he couldn't do anything about them.  So much for that pest control.  Lol! I don't actually have the children, they are my mother's, but they live with me and I suffer too damnit!
