Speechless Sundays - I finally have a Teenager....And life...will never be the same!

Mortgage and Lending with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage

Kinda wierd having a teenager.  I'm writing thMy First Teenageris post as 4 boys spend the night for the birthday of my eldest, Brett.  You see he was born on ground hog day, but, of course, we're celebrating it this evening.  Here he is with his brother, Jake, after Jake gave him his birthday present.  The obnoxiousness is coming out, but by the crossed eyes of Jake, I can tell that he loves the adulation given to him by the older brother who usually beats on him. 




It's gonna be a long life....SIGH!!!!!

Oh to be a teenager again, knowing what we know now.  I would have stayed home more.

Larry, Not to worry ... the teenage years will be over when they reach thirty or so!  (LOL)!  Enjoy it ... the kids will be getting married and having a family in the blink of an eye.

I don't know whether to congratulate you, or offer sympathy, upon the arrival of one of your children becoming a teenager.  I can tell you a little what to expect (1) Loads of sleepless nights (2) Much more gray hair.  As for advice on how to survive it.  I have none.  No 2 teenagers are alike.  But GOD HELP YOU!

I have 4 children all grown now.  They all grew to be wonderful people, but I remember those teen years, oh so well:-)
