Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Disclosure:  This post is a part of the Blog Dare I am participating in for 2014. Come join us at BloggyMoms!

Growing up, I knew my parents loved me, and I knew they wanted only the best for me, BUT, I honestly thought they had some crazy rules.  I bet I heard, "Don't go out with a wet head." at least 3 times a week. More times than I can remember I was told that if I didn't stop making a face that my "face would freeze that way."  I was asked hundreds of times if I was born in a barn, because I left the door open.  Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I thought they were nuts!  Who needed rules and why those stupid rules?

As I talk with my teenage daughter, Kat, and her friends, I find myself repeating some of these same things. Kat is as notorious as I was about leaving with a wet head.  I am constantly telling her to go dry it, because I do not want her to get sick.  When her friends are here, they run in and out, laughing like hyenas, and they leave the sliding door open.  I can picture Daddy laughing at me from Heaven as he hears me ask them if they were born in a barn.  And just when I thought Kat had left behind the ugly face phase, thanks to Miley Cyrus, I have to deal with that silly tongue stuck out in half of her photos.  I hope it doesn't freeze that way!  LOL.  It all makes sense now.  Yeah!  Yeah!  Yeah!  

I cannot wait until the day I can sit back and laugh at her when my grandkids do these things and she reacts like I react now.  Yeah.  That time is coming! She will get a taste of it! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!

I have a teenaged boy who constantly says (what I consider insane) things to me (for example, defending the tongue-out Miley Cyrus look). So I started writing down all the things he says, with dates, so I can read it back to him when he's an adult. I call it "Words of Wisdom from a High School Senior." Makes me laugh just to think about his face when he reads this at age 35!
