    I Love My Teens Even Though They Drive Me Crazy!

    Why are teenagers so full of drama. I am not just talking about girls either. I have teen boys and I think they have some kind of pact that says that if one of them is in a good mood, the other has to be cranky and complaining about EVERYTHING. Ugh...I love them to pieces but...

    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!

    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...
