Life with a Teenage Spawn


"Where's my backpack? I put on the floor in the kitchen."

I put it in her room after I got home from work.... I nearly killed myself when I tripped on it. That was hours ago.

"I can't find the brush! Where did you put the brush??"

The brush? 's on the floor in her bedroom right next her backpack. Might as well be located in the Bermuda Triangle.

"Did you wear my mascara? You like you're wearing my mascara!!"

Um... Yah. Her mascara. You mean.... The mascara I bought myself when my other mascara somehow fell into the toilet?!? Apparently what's hers is hers and what's mine is hers.

"Why didn't you wash my jeans when you did laundry?!? You know I wanted to wear these jeans today!"

The jeans I told you to throw in the washer when I started that last load? If you can't manage to throw your own<b> dirty </font></b>jeans in the washer, neither can I.

"! I taught Tilly a new dance move!"

Poor Tilly, her pleading eyes as she sits patiently waiting for the Spawn get done contorting her body into a series of arm and leg movements. That kitty has the patience of a saint.

"We're out of toilet paper."

No we're not. 's a brand new package under the bathroom sink.

Which brings me the here and now. Wish me luck folks cause right now we're feuding! I came home from work and discovered the freezer door was wide open. For how long? I have no idea....

But was the last straw and I took away her M&M's.

I am now the worst on earth.

I somehow think I won't be losing any sleep over my new found title....

Happy Monday!

    Quoting MrRareity:
    I think you're handleing things very well. First of all without knowing her age assuming she is a teenager she can do her own laundry. If she leaves the freezer door open and lets say for don't notice it for a day what happens to the things in the freezer? That's why it's good to have an alarm if the doors are open. Does she do chores around the house? If she doesn't maybe she should have a few. I love your blog because it makes me laugh.
She does not really have any chores, but I do make her help me when I'm cleaning.... etc. This year she'll be responsible for making sure the raking gets done, though. That's new.

    No doubt you're thinking; "What have I done to deserve this?" more often than not.

Well, thank you. I don't always feel that way when I'm screaming at the top of my lungs in frustration. LOL

    When I was younger, this sort of behavior was always justified by saying, "It's just a phase. She'll grow out of it!"

    For the sake of your sanity, I hope so. . . and soon!

    Good luck!
I've actually been telling myself, this is just a phase!! LOL She'll outgrow it!! All I can say is, I certainly hope so!

    If you earned that title from taking away the M&Ms I wonder what honor she will bestow on you if you take a cell phone?
    They do eventually grow up. My son was still up when I was getting up for work the one summer before he got a job going during college years
    Now he has his own place on the north side of town
    I have wished kids on him so he can experience the joy of children LOL
I have taken away her cell phone before, she's unfazed. I'm that crazy mom who decides to have technology free days and times for myself and the kids because I think we just get way to dependent on it. So taking the cell phone away doesn't have the same impact.

    *gasp* What do you mean you took away her M&Ms???
    lol
    I think if that's all you're taking, she's damned lucky! I'd be tempted to take the jeans, the backpack, the brush, definitely the mascara and possibly even the toilet paper! OK...maybe not that.
You have to take away the thing that will make the most impact. At the time, it was M&M's. She was not using her phone, the tv was turned off, and her chromebook was in the corner but she was happily munching away on M&M's while doing her homework.

*insert evil genius laugh here*

    I remember going off on the oldest G-girl one day when I came home and found MY butter sitting on the counter all warm and runny and she couldn't tell me how long it had been sitting there, and didn't really give a shit.
I think that's the part that pisses me off, they really don't care. I can actually hear her retort to you.... 'I don't know, does it matter??' When I asked my daughter why the freezer was open she said... 'I don't know, I wasn't in it.' She still had the wrapper for the frozen breakfast sandwich laying on the bed next to her.

    Q? Is it time yet for you and your daughter to cut that lawn or rake those leaves? ๐Ÿค” Perhaps a list of regular chores would instil some responsibility into that cloned mirror of you.

Not much has changed, other than scenery... It's funny you mention the raking thing, we *just* had that conversation on Sunday. She already knows she will be responsible for raking those leaves. I can't wait to see how well she does. LOL
