Teenagers can be a challenge. But they can also be fun.
It's mid-August and as the parents of kids everywhere know, nerves are starting to fray, boredom is setting in, otherwise pleasant children start to become .... well... unpleasant. That would be true for my three children. Well, and me too, if I must admit.
So it was nice to see them just hanging out the other night and enjoying each other without bitc...... I mean annoying each other. One of them found a funny dance on youtube and they spent 20 minutes "learning" it. They look awfully serious in this picture but believe me, they were laughing hysterically.
That's the Good. Here's the Bad.
Phone call from 13-year old son while I'm at work:
T: Ummm, Mom. There seems to be a problem with your camera. There's a message that says "lens error."
Me: You know you're not supposed to use my work camera!!!!!
T: I know. I'm REALLY sorry.
Me: I'll look at it when I get home. Sometimes the little button gets shifted . I'm sure it's nothing.
Moral of the story: Do not tape Mom's work camera to a remote control car to see what it films as it careens down the sloped driveway.
