I am a mom with three kids. Only one has left the nest. Once he was gone, i put razor wire, and an electrified fence to keep him out.
Don’t get me wrong, i love my children. But i would like my sanity back, sleep naked again. No one to wake me in the middle of the night, so they can tell me they threw up. Great now i am up, once i see it and smell it I’m joining you in the bathroom.
I have an almost 15 year old. I cannot understand a thing she says. She will say things like, ‘ I can’t even’ , or ‘ OTP’. Should these things have some kind of meaning? Finish the sentence, stop talking in anagram speak, it was never meant to be a language. I’m pretty worried that she is trying to give me a message about something important, only i need a fangirl dictionary to figure it all out. Will i even get the message in time? I’m a little afraid.
I know when i was a teen, i was a dork. I did talk in a language that my parents could not understand. Each generation does. I was fine when my boys were teens, they still seemed semi normal. But i want to grab my daughter by her shoulders, and just ask her, “what the hell are you trying to say?” I think even Lassie was easier than this girl. How long does teenagedom last. Yes, i made up a word, if she can then i can.
I have thought about coming up with my own language, to confuse her. Maybe it will draw her out? She will talk in sentences again? But then i have this feeling that my new language will make complete sense to her, and i will be able to finally say ” i understand my teenager!”
I do feel that when talking to my teen, that i should be able to write on my resume that i speak a foreign language. Just don’t ask me what its called, i feel so ‘ what is air’ . Oh my god, she is brain washing me, I’m really learning to speak fangirl. Squee!!!
New thought! What if i can learn this new language, and say whatever i want, whenever i want, Daddy will have no idea. Hmm i am thinking of all the possibilities!!
