Preteen Angst

I now have a greater respect for what I put my parents through and I all ready thought that I had come to appreciate it. I am especially appreciating what my dad went through raising a couple of preteen/teen girls. He, being a man, would not understand what we were going through like my mom would have.

Rush has reached that part of her life; now, I am not talking about anything other than the hormonal imbalances that woman have gone through for as long as we can remember. She is moody at times, cranky, angry,cranky, sad, cranky...did I mention cranky? She is a bundle of emotions that brew in her body and we never really know which one is going to come out next.

It's a hard part of life: confusion, emotions, just trying to deal with it all.

Today, BigB was tickling her feet and one minute she was laughing and having a great time-the next, tears. BigB sent her downstairs to see what Jellybean and Bug were up to and she came back upstairs crying. Why? They were sitting on her bed and playing her keyboard. Hormones? I think so.

Anyway, we are in the midst of a tornado of emotions around this place so keep Rush in her prayers as she goes through this preteen angst.

I'll keep the sweet girl in my prayers. Yes. Those hormones are no fun. I don't know if we ever outgrow them... I think we just get used to them (or at least our husbands realize THEY need to get used to them!).
