Random thoughts on teenagers.....

Tonight my son is having a party here at the house and I am chaperoning.  Here are a few things I've observed about teenagers.  If you don't have any yet, get ready.....

* they are LOUD

* they have no idea how loud they are

* even when they try to be quiet.......... they are loud

* they like to eat.........a lot

* they can act very goofy, but if you act goofy...........you're wierd

* they eat constantly.........and a lot..........and loudly

* they actually like to talk to you....if you will listen, they will talk....if they are not yours
 
* if you provide the place, the food, the time and will be involved........they will have fun!  And you will love having 20 teenagers in your home!

.............but it will.be.loud!!

No added pressure about the mug contest. People misunderstood me! I edited to say that I didn't mean you had to do a sexy pose; just that I was trying to sell the idea to you all. Uh, sometimes humor confuses people. My humor does.

Yep, you got it right. With 2 in my house at all times, it is always loud! When they have friends over it's even louder. In fact, when it's not loud, that's when I start to wonder what's going on!

Just for clarity... were you implying that teenagers are both LOUD and huge consumers of food??;-)

Thanks for the insight. I have a little while yet, but I know those years are coming. And my 8 yr. old already thinks I'm weird.

very true, they do talk your ear off if they are not yours, and they are loud, i used to feed 15 to 20 teenage kids every Friday and it was a mad house! i love being around them though...for a little while! :D

Mocha with Linda said...

Love it!

Hope you are enjoying some quietness today!

Boys eat soooo much. I agree with your list!!

Dena said...

I agree with your list 100%! The only thing I can add to it, is that even though there are times when you think the noise is going to drive you crazy, you will miss it after they have grown up and moved out.

Sara: I think this is hysterical and I'm sure your parents would too. I seem to remember being quite loud when we were teenagers and our Mom's were always after us to quiet down. I also remember your Dad being goofy and you being embarrassed by him. I always thought he was great, your Mom too. How quickly we forget how we were at that age.... Margaret
