Dear Puberty

Dear Puberty,

Eleven years ago I gave birth to the most beautiful little girl in the whole wide world. She was a joy, she slept, she barely cried, she wasn't fussy. She was the most perfect baby that any Mom could ask for.

For some reason you decided to take my daughter and turn her into a "young lady". REALLY? You couldn't have given me a few more years? Now she is crazy in hormones, meaner than a bull dog and can roll her eyes better than the exorcist!!

This is the hardest time in any young girls' life. I don't understand why it has to be even sooner. Because when she suffers so do the rest of us!!   :)



  1. Yep, this is how it works. Just remember those good times through this emotional time. It will even out and she will return to the wonderful young lady she used to be. I know from experience.

    Have a terrific day and learn how to count to 10. It will serve you well. Big hugs. :)

  2. Thanks for joining Good Friends Just Click! I'm GFC following. Hope you join us again next week!


  3. Chin up Momma! It does & will get better. My son was quite the beast & gave me such a time! I get mad just thinking about it but that was years ago. He is now almost 33 yrs old & we are very close. In fact, when I move to PA. in April, my son, his wife & three kids are following because my son wants to be around his Momma!

  4. Welcome to hell, my friend. :) My first born went off to college this year and it all happens way too fast. Oh, what I wouldn't give to have him under my roof and rolling his eyes at me again.

  5. Happy Birthday! My daughter will be 11 next Monday. Oh no I'm in trouble!

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog :)

  6. Amen! I have two teenage daughters and a tween who all got hit with the puberty, and attitude, stick.

  7. lol! I have a 17 year old who's coming out the other side (mostly) and a 10 1/2 year old who's most definitely in the throws of puberty (as in I'd like to throw her outside.)

    I think it's some sort of sick ironic joke. When they become young women and are again great company they're just about ready to leave the house. Sigh.
