The Ride!


The ride of the teenage years has been nothing short of adventurous! I never know what ride it will be today… is it Space Mountain… where it is a constant of ups and downs that you are kept in the dark all day?

Or is it the Bumper Cars… you just keep bumping heads all day?

Or maybe if I am lucky we will be in the paddle boats… working together nicely and smoothly.

It can be very tiring. Somedays I just don’t care. I really love them but I am not going to try anymore tonight.

Somedays can be just plain funny. Well if I didn’t think it was funny, I’d no doubt be balling!

Hormones. What a scary thing! That is why God gave sweet delicious smelling babies to hook us. Then after years of snuggling, loving and being the best thing to them… WHAM… it changes.

Wow!

I love my boys. Yes, even the teenagers. I wish I COULD kiss it better. I wish I could get close enough for that snuggle.
Then it is 11 p.m. In bounces one, “I am NOT TIRED! I am going to lie here for a while.”
This drives Sanj NUTS…. who is not a night owl like the rest of his family… and just wants his space and sleep.

I am actually going to go to Chapters to look up some books on the teenager and the hormones that invaded them.

But while I complain of the woes of my 13 and 14 year old… I look out my window and see this picture.

My heart swells (literally) with pride and love as I watch my oldest cutting the grass with his youngest, taking time to protect his hearing…

How I love my boys. Do they drive me nuts? Yes.. 99% of the time! Does that 1 % make up for the 99%?

Yes!
