Extra Terrestrial? Nope, just PRE-TEEN.

Pre-Teen Chronicles Journal Entry #1

I had been warned about the aliens that come down looking for 12 and 13 year olds. I laughed at my friends in the past. I am not laughing anymore! They have come for my 12 year old. I think they are trying to take the puppy too! I keep screaming, "Don't look into the light!" But she can't hear me because E.T. is talking too- I guess! What happened to the cutest little girl?

There used to be a time when:

My opinion was gold
I knew everything
She wanted me to come up to her school
She wanted to dress like me
She was excited to have homework
She was anticipating helping mommy with the dishes
She ate whatever I cooked
She wanted to sit up under me all the time!

Where did she go?

Now:

I don't know anything- her friends know more than me
If I come up to her school, she doesn't want to be seen anywhere near me
My sense of clothing style appalls her
I have to force her to do her homework every night, and if I forget she forgets (yeah right)
She does not remember from day to day her daily dish washing chores
She hates everything I cook
If I come into the living room she goes to her room - where I think the aliens are!

So you know what I am going to do? I am going get on it! Many people think that once the kid is potty trained, it gets easier. Nope, now I gotta fight aliens! Learning her as she grows and becomes a young adult is going to be a challenge! What is my life going to transform into being the mom of a pre-teen? Anybody else out there with a pre-teen? What are some of your experiences?





Yours truly,

So not looking forward to this age !!!! I was warned to girls are worse then boys. I just laughed and said but they are so cute and they want to be like me. I know I am living in a fantasy world!

Great post! So funny and you're right - it IS like aliens have come for them during the teen years. I have a daughter who will be 23 in June and I can assure you that eventually the aliens DO return your daughter. And if you're lucky in the interim she will have transformed into an amazing young woman and one of the best friends you could ever hope to have.

Then again, I also have a 4 year old daughter who ALREADY is acting like a preteen:
