O.k. Let me start out by saying that I am not commenting on anyone’s weight here. That is not the point. What I am commenting on is the teenage mind in responses to most of my questions.
It occurred to me yesterday that I have a small herd of cattle in my house. Yes. This surprised me as much as it does you. I had just asked child #3 to do something, which she did not want to do. The response? “Mmmmoooo.” Excuse me? When did the cattle move into my home?
When I called her this morning to get up to get ready for school. You guessed it…”Mmmmoooo!” Every time, without fail, “Mmmmoooo!” Now, child #3 is by far the greatest offender of said vernacular, but I have heard it from all of my children at one time or another. It just never occurred to me that I was raising cattle and not teenagers!
I was raised on a small farm and we had a couple of head of cattle; Hamburger and Shortribs to be exact. (Hey! I come by my twisted sense of humor naturally!!!) I’m familiar with the sound. Mmmhmm…teenagers mimic it exactly! So, maybe I’m not raising teens. Maybe, just maybe, I’m raising cattle!
