Teenage Tantrums

November 20, 2009

21st Nov 2007

Many of you have been there – Experienced the pain, the frustration.

You know the signs. Untidy bedrooms, staying out late at night, the rebellious attitude, challenging previously accepted ‘rules of the house’. That phase every parent has to contend with – ‘the teenage years.

Our two have now fled the nest and have families of their own. I thought ‘teenage tantrums’ were therefore a thing of the past – the pain, a distant memory. But no. Horror of horrors. Wee Rab has become a teenager.

Consider the evidence ….

He has taken to ‘trashing his bedroom’, leaving toys and bedding strewn all over the floor . . .

And stopping out late – well past his bedtime.

Long after Mrs D has retired to bed and Ceilidh and Bonnie are tucked up in their baskets, Wee Rab is still out in the garden refusing to come in to the house

Repeated parental requests, commands to ‘get the f*ck in the house‘ are met with open defiance.

The battle for supremacy has commenced!

    I’m bothered by the one-sided green eye. Perhaps a quick dose of posession?

    Great pictures and nice story. This has inspired my to post a story about my rotten assed cats… I mean literally, they have some poop issues that cling to the hair of their butts… More to follow…

    Best wishes to Mrs. D and her other half…
