Teenagers -- Go Figure!


K is for Kids

I love my kids . . .I do.  Honest.  Except two of mine are now teenagers which makes them a little hard to bear most days of the week.  See, they suffer from a chronic illness that I find inflicts a lot of kids their age:  I-hate-you-now-give-me-money-for-the-mall syndrome.  My husband says the cure (for me) is wine; some days I think it is boarding school.

However today, as I curse Uncle Sam for talking MY hard earned money, I have found the silver lining and it's name is DEDUCTION!

Funny Tax Day Ecard: I never appreciate my kids more than when I'm doing my taxes.

  1. I'm amazed at the kids I see treating their parents like crap and then having the nerve to ask for something. Hello? Two way street, heard of it? I'm glad I was so perfect (not).

  2. They have to be good for something, right? I have two teenagers too, but so far I've had it pretty easy, so I can't complain!!!

    1. Yes LOL I find it run rampant for a few years then subsides (or so they tell me)

  4. My oldest is 12 and he's just entering the I-hate-you stage, but luckily it doesn't involve money yet! The worst thing is, once he's 18, his brother will be 12 and I get to start all over!

  5. Mine is like Erica- I get the 'I-hate-you' but not the money request, although, he does ask us to buy him lots of things (games, hockey equipment, lacrosse stuff). Hmm, maybe it's just the money in disguise.
