Well Bryce is giving me a run for my money- Overall I have to admit he is a pretty good kid. Respectful, we are close- he tells me most things- and I still enjoy him. I know teenage years are supposed to be heard- but I am so not ready.
He has always gotten bad grades- he does have a bit of a learning problem- but I am not kidding myself- he never applies himself- does homework and will never be a scholar. My rule for his Driver's License is he has to have "C" grades or better- not a "C" average. Mind you- when I was a kid there is no way in H*ll that "C' grades would have gotten my my license- but I cut him some slack. So- Bryce is 16 and still has his permit- his grades just came out and he has 2 F's and a D- so no licence. Bottom line. I am the cruelest Mother though because all his friends can drive. Oh well.
Let's not forget the other night when he could not sleep and he steals the truck- he premeditated this because we have a driveway alarm and he muted it- I did not even know it muted!
He is dating a college girl and I KNOW things are going on that I do not approve of. I can't be with him all the time- but it is just unsettling to know that he is growing up too fast!
I don't get it- I am a SAHM, I am so involved in their lives, have lunch with them at school, on the PTO, am a face everyone knows because I am involved in everything from sports, to class teacher. I don't drink, do drugs, abuse them, I have a great relationship with my spouse- and the problem kids are doing great- win all the awards at school- my son is flunking classes and stealing cars? I don't get it- should I start drinking?
Stop this parent ride I want to get off.
