Friday, I will officially be the Mother of a teenager. Yippeeeee! Auuugh! Help! WHAT? After all the scary comments I've heard about teenagers, I'll have to agree that for the most part, they are true. Attitudes, weird acting, selfish, rebellious, and a few others I'm sure you've heard also. In spite of all these things, which are expected in the transition years, first-born is still a sweet child. Loving, caring, and considerate of his Mama's feelings. He opens the door for me, asks if I need help carrying items, and will carry my empty plate into the kitchen. Yes, he is full of attitude and makes me ill at times, but he's mine.
