Visitors From Planet Teen

With money VERY tight around here these days, I did not attend Blogher this year even though I had my heart set on it. Today you won't see great pictures from BlogHer parties or witty, inside-joke laden posts from me because I spent the weekend with my two sister-in-laws and teenagers. (cue horror movie theme music)

E's one sister lives in Florida and doesn't visit much at all. His other sister lived by us in NJ and she has 2 teenagers. Both of them descended on us this past weekend. E was happy to see his sisters (one who is going through a rough patch) and they were happy to be back in NH and see some family.

Did you know teenagers are messy? And they sleep a lot but not at night, their best sleep is in the morning. Or afternoon. Or evening, but who is waiting anyway?
They also use a lot of shampoo. They don't know how to hang up wet towels or that maybe bras shouldn't just be left on the floor.
They eat a lot- and none of it was green/was grown/or picked/or can be labeled with words such as "healthy" or "nutritious".
They love to bicker. And Text. Hopefully not sexting.

Who knew?
I am in for a bumpy ride in about 6 years, aren't I?


  1. You know what scares me about the idea of my kids morphing into teenagers? It's that they currently sometimes act EXACTLY as you described actual teenagers!

    Minus the sleeping part. Good lord, I wish these kids of mine realized they don't have to be up for the (long) day at the crack of dawn!

  2. Aside from sexting and bras, that could describe me.

    hi.. just dropping by here... have a nice day!

  4. BlogHer was fun, but a bit of a blur. Just go stand in a women's bathroom and drink vodka and not sleep and you'll get the basic experience. :)
