And she's not even a teen yet. Well, my easy child (ahem) is ticking me off with her attitude. And when she uses her "attitude" voice, and I bring it up she said, with the same attitude, "I don't have an attitude!" She slams doors. She deliberately does little things to get on my nerves. For example, she slams the door shut, but you have to shut it hard or it won't shut. So she doesn't. Then she says, "You're closer than me. You do it." Sometimes she's kidding. Sometimes she's not. I currently have her cell phone and computer in my room because she was rude. She is walking around acting like she doesn't care (although I know she does). Pretty soon I'll bet she comes in crying and saying, "You're always mad at me and I never do anything." The other day she got mouthy to a teacher for the first time ever. The teacher made her go in the back of the room because somebody said she was throwing something. She was, but it was because the person had thrown something at her friend. Although I agree that it wasn't "fair" I told her life isn't fair. She told me all the teachers are mean to her. Honestly, she wants me to transfer her from our tiny school to a big middle school next year, and we're allowed to do that in Wisconsin, but if she keeps up this attitude I won't do it. It's been a long time since I've had a girl teenager. It isn't pretty, and I'm not happy. Ugh! I guess this is more a vent than anything. What happened to my sweet little girl? Oh, yeah. She got her period!!!
