If my Daughter...

If my daughter is ANYTHING like the 13 year old girls that I encounter on a daily basis, I am seriously in for it!!

Daily I have to remind myself that this is a phase and that someday they will look back at how they spoke to me and be mortified (Mom, if you're reading this, I am seriously sorry! I know that you will probably hear a lot more apologies when Isabella is a teenager, but for now...seriously, I am so sorry!!!!)

Why is it that when girls become teenagers they think they need to test every single boundary? Roll their eyes? Sigh? Do they think that we haven't been there and done that? Do they think that it wouldn't be easier in life if we just did that to people in the real world? Don't like what your boss says, that's okay, just roll your eyes and sigh? Don't like that you have to pay your mortgage on time? That's okay, just roll your eyes and sigh and cross your arms over your chest like the person is the most boring person on the planet? That will work!! That will get you what you want!

Alright, sarcastic Mrs. Howard has taken over, but seriously! Today at work, my patience was tested times 10. The young lady told me that she speaks to her mom this way too and I wanted to die. "How's that working out for you?" I asked. "Is it getting you the results that you want?" To which, of course she replied that she does not have a great relationship with her mom. Hmmmmm?!

I love my job! I love my job! I love my job! Right? On a day like today, I'm just going to keep repeating that until I start to believe it. =)

Thanks for the apology, but not necessary. Fortunately I realized that that behavior was normal. Frustraiting yes, but normal. The only hard part was not crossing my arms , rolling my eyes and grunting at you! And what goes around, comes around. Love you!
