every day in may...

WHAT?!?!?! how is it may already?

and a week into may?

and i totally forgot about EVERY DAY IN MAY! it has been a blog staple for the last couple of years on this and some other blogs. because slogging through may isn't enough for us overachievers. we have to add some extra pressure. just to make our torturous trek through the tumultuous tirade that is the miserable month of may even more murky and maddening.

(did you know that alliteration helps me cope when times are tough.? so does alcohol. but alliteration is less addictive. and more sanctioned by the baptist church.)

so based on my friend shannon's spectacular suggestion (still coping thru alliteration) in MY ONE AND ONLY COMMENT IN LIKE FOREVER i am going to post a daily...

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE EXPECTING A TEENAGER.

loosely based on this tome that once ruled my life for approximately 30 months  (3 late babies= 30 months of pregnancy. i did the math.) "loosely based" on this bestseller so as to not be sued. though my friend shannon is a lawyer and i could totally get free legal services from her. and she is a rootin' tootin' award winning lawyer so don't even mess with her. or me. 

of course i will be the parent of a teenager for about a decade. so WHERE IS MY GUIDE TO THESE TEENAGE YEARS?!?!?!??! plenty of "what to expect" books for pregnant women. even a movie based on these books.

but NOTHING for "what to expect" as the mom of teenager.

that seems wrong to me. and i like to right a wrong. or in this case WRITE a wrong. (ha. i crack myself up. making puns is also a coping mechanism. cheaper than therapy people. try it.)

so i am not an expert here people. in fact i am totally making this up as i go along...

but you are here for the last three weeks of may and you might as well traverse this trodden trail through teenage years with me...
