Parent’s Just Don’t Understand (<–Click Here)
I guess I am just one of the parent’s that just doesn’t understand….Boys hit sixteen and all of the sudden that little boy who was always by your side is hiding on the other side of the mall terrified that he may be seen with Mom. However, my son MUST have the latest in fashion! I am apparently just supposed to hand my credit card over and say, “My credit limit is $15,00.00, now go get whatever you want?” What Mother in her right mind does this? So, we have settled out of court with on-line shopping, and he sends me the link of everything it is acceptable to buy. Not the greatest compromise for me! I miss the experience of going with him and waiting outside the dressing room while he throws things at me stating YES or NO! Okay, so maybe I really don’t miss it that much, but I enjoyed our time together.
This gradual coming of age as all teenage boys do, makes a Mom who is so desperate to hold on to that little boy cry tears of separation! What happened? It seems only yesterday he was following me into the bathroom and talking to me while I was drying my hair, now he is constantly in his room and I am no longer allowed to say certain words or phrases like, “Mom has game”. You know what I am sayin? He looks at me as if I had three heads and says, “Mom – don’t use slang!” Why the heck not? Who crowned him King of slang! I still have it “all going on”…I am referring to the half bag of chocolate covered peanuts I just ate, but he just doesn’t understand me! So basically I don’t understand him, and he would rather die than to even try to understand me. What’s a Mom to do? Embarrass that little brat! So, here is my music video an oldie but a goodie…so buckle up, and understand this!

Because…Because…Because…I said so! I’m the Mom that is why. You will Thank me for this when your grown. Well, maybe you won’t actually thank me but you will appreciate not becoming homeless!
XOXO to Carter, LOVE – MOM (Yes, I hope this is highly embarrassing)
