Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Raising Girls

on August 24, 2015

I don’t think it really hit me until maybe a year ago just how much trouble I’m in trying to raise 2 girls. The hubby and I joke about the estrogen levels in the house but I am now starting to feel the storm building. Diva girl is nearly 8 1/2  years old and the moodiness has started in earnest. We have arrived at the stage of crying for the tiniest infraction and getting angry for no reason. It is not pretty and it’s only just begun. Baby girl is starting to assert herself against her big sister’s dominance and she will get “all up in her face” when she needs to. So we’re talking a lot of yelling, arguing, screaming and sometimes a punch thrown in the mix.
What the hell?
Have I mentioned that I was an only child?! I am feeling out of my depth.
Add that to the pre-teen meltdowns that can happen without any warning and we’re talking chaos.
The only freakin meltdowns in this family should be mine!
These girls have no consideration for my needs…sigh.
My friends with boys only always listen with a sympathetic ear…but I know they’re thanking their lucky stars.
I now know what that smug smile my mother wears is really all about.
Dear Karma…I thought we were friends!
