The Life of a Teen

My poor kid.  She's usually such a laid back girl.  Pretty happy, doesn't get upset much.  But lately things have been getting her down.  She asked me the other night..."Mom, what's wrong with me?"  If that doesn't pull at your heart strings I don't know what will.  She rattled off the following list:

I've got eye problems (she wears glasses)
I've got mouth problems (braces, and currently wears appliances to fix overbite)
I've got grade problems (was upset about a bad test grade in biology)
I've got pancreas problems (she's diabetic)
I've got skin problems (had some breakouts, got some medicated cream from doctor now skin is red and irritated)

I wish I could make it all go away!  Luckily she hasn't listed boy problems yet!  Those can wait.

Now she's leaving for a week long trip with the school band.  I'm really gonna miss her :(

The teen years are so rough. I know what a mess I was. I don't look forward to dealing with them with my own daughter.

Hey, we'd like to feature you next Monday on BlogTrotting! Can you have a post ready?
