WARNING ! Those Cute Little Babies Turn into Evil Teenagers !

For all of you mothers of daughters ... be warned. If you ever tell her that she is not allowed to talk to or date a certain boy then she is going to do anything and everything in her power to do exactly that .. why? Because he is just the most fabulous thing on the face of the earth and even though she is just barely 17, she knows everything about relationships and there is noooooooooooo way that he is only after her for "one thing" and they are best friends and even though he is about to turn 21 he would NEVER try to talk her into doing something that she didn't want to do. She knows that we check the phone bills and she has been talking to him on a daily basis. He has been "sniffing around" since she was 15 and he was 18 and she knows how we feel about the age difference. We are trying to stay calm .... DAMMIT !

Anybody want to help me build my fort of wine boxes?

  1. I'm not looking forward to this stage of my daughter's life, but...

    When I was almost-18, I started dating a guy who was 22. He was a master's student and I was *just* finishing high school. My parents thought the same thing you do. (Except he was the virgin sweetheart in our relationship. I was the one who had to not "talk him into doing something that he didn't want to do".) Then, when I was 19, I started dating a man who is 13 years older than me. (He was FREAKED OUT by how young I was, but I was persistent.) We ended up dating for two years and we're still casual friends ten years later.

    So. It's possible that your daughter has good taste?
