You Know You Have Teenagers When...

the days when I was awakened at five in the morning by a child standing
over my bed, leaning in with his face an inch from my nose, breathing
on me scaring me half to death. Now I have three teenagers and a tween
whom I can hardly drag from bed in the mornings. Oh, I remember the days
of diapers, finger-foods and potty training which have been replaced by
driving tests, Facebook and Pinterest. Boy how time flies when you are
So how do you know you have teenagers in your house? Well, here are a few hints. You know you have teenagers when…
…When the name “mom” is said in a high pitched tone with six syllables – “m – o – o- -o – o –m!!!”
…You have three blow dryers, two straighteners, four curling irons and a million bobby pins in your bathroom drawers.
…You find stray bobby pins on your carpet and kitchen floor daily.

*Note from Me.....I think I should write you know you have Young Adults in the house when.... I'm at the YA stage we have past teenage years, no empty nest at this house.
