Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us. If the blog seems random, it's because life is and hits us all at 100mph.

PostHeaderIcon Discussion on Daughters and Puberty. I need a Xanax

Obviously I have no idea what is in store for me... and please keep in mind, most of my comments are tongue in cheek here between two girl friends (Jen, me and p=girlfriend). Here is a copy/paste with some minor name editing:

Jen: you know.... I'm not sure I understand little girls. I really don't.

p: ;)
i'm scared to ask

this morning I took her to school and asked if she had a good birthday and she started CRYING!!! telling me she wanted to go bowling! I was like WTF???? Said you had 3 friends over yesterday and I thought that is what you wanted and you never told me you wanted to go bowling. She then strting crying more saying, "I tried to tell you but the kids just wanted to play." WTF??? I told her I couldn't afford to take every one bowling and I would take just her and I. WTF???? we've been talking about your bday for a week and you tell me the day after you want to go bowling and you're crying???? honestly, I'm glad I was at a loss for words.
I don't get little girls.

p: C was bawling this morning because she didn't think she rinsed the conditioner out of her hair well enough and i made her get out of the shower anyway

Jen :
so, this is normal?

p :
oh yeah

Jen :

and it was 2 hours ago

p :

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
