That is to say, it's not anything they are doing...it's the age that they are at.
Sure, there is pre-teen angst with Grace...
since Grace has spent the majority of her summer shuttling between friend's houses and ours...
But for the most part, their social lives are FAR busier than ours.
What with shopping trips to the mall with friends, sleepovers, sleepovers at our house, swim dates with friends, etc., etc.
I'm just the shuttle bus that takes them where they need to go, and then picks them back up.
A week ago I went out with some girlfriends for supper. We were so excited to be out...we stayed out for 3+ hours. It was great! No, it was Heaven!
I guess I shouldn't complain. My kids have friends. My kids are having fun.
It's summer after all.
when your dear mother asks you to get ready to go to the library tomorrow to return our books/movies...I don't want any grumbling. I want smiles, and no fighting in the fan, and NO TEXTING friends.
Oh, and we might need to go to Wal-mart for a few things as well. Just a fair warning.
Mom (the under socialized one who takes care of you and drives you places...like ALL the time!)
