Special Occasion: I’m Old

His face doesn't really look like that.

Well, it’s official. I’m old. My beautiful baby boy is no longer a child. He is now a teenager. EEEEKKKK!!!! That was the sound of my hair instantly turning gray and my entire household being flipped on its ear.

I know how it is to live with teenagers. When I married DH, his children were 16, 15, and 12. Yes, I was an idiot for volunteering to enter a house with 2, almost 3, teenagers. During the years of teen hell, I found my first gray hair. But now it’s MY BABY that’s going to be driving me nuts.

I know the reason behind the crazy teen years. They are developing their own personalities and it takes a lot of mistakes to make it happen. Knowing why doesn’t make it easier.

I can only hope that his teenage years go by without any jail time (for me or him) and no major fissures in his relationships with family.

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY baby boy. (He’s going to kill me for calling him that.) Please, don’t go nuts with your new “teenager” status. Enough blogging for now, Mom has to go make an appointment for a dye job.
