The Teenager: Mom, what do you think about the Raiders?

Me: …of The Lost Ark?

The Teenager: *rolls eyes* Mooooom!! No! Football. Are they any good?

Me: Why do you need to know?

The Teenager: No reason.

In reality, she was trying to bone up on football for the new guy she’s dating. Sigh….


The Teenager: Mom, what do you think I’ll be like when I’m drunk?

Me: Well, considering that you’re never going to get drunk, have sex, or even consider babies until you’re 50, we don’t have to worry about it.

The Teenager: …… (gives me the “mom” look…like “mom…you’re so not funny” whereas I’m totally funny but she just can’t appreciate good humor.)

Me: You’ll be hilarious. You’ll giggle so hard that you can’t even speak coherently. And then you’ll wet your pants.

The Teenager: Ummm…no. Have you ever done that? EW!

Me: Do I LOOK like the kind of girl who loses her bladder?

The Teenager: No, you probably dance better though.


The Teenager: Mom, we need to go back to Disneyland. I need more of that hot chocolate.

Me: Really? You want to go to Disneyland just for Carnation hot chocolate? What about Pirates of the Carribean or the Haunted Mansion or The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room? ( I do a dance when I say “Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room” because I’m a dance master.)

The Teenager: Oh those are great and all but that hot chocolate was awesome.

Me: *facepalm* That will be some very expensive cocoa.


The Teenager: Ummm…Mom? Why is there a cutting board on your bathroom floor?

Me: I had to photo something. This is what you do when you’re a food blogger. You find lighting and you use it. I haven’t had a chance to clean it up yet.

The Teenager: Good thing you’re a neat freak, too, or that would be gross.

  1. I totally go to Disneyland for the pickles.
    When I was pregnant, my hubby would swing by Disneyland on the way home from work just to get my pickle fix. (we had passes so why not)
    Now I’m going to have to try the cocoa.

    1. Yes! Right near the T at the entrance where you can go either right, left, or straight toward the castle, there’s the Carnation restaurant. They have the best hot chocolate!

    1. So mine isn’t the only one with these brain farts of thoughts? She’ll just come into the room and out of the blue, start the MOST RANDOM conversation.

  2. Oh, teenagers. They can be so funny! A thousand dollar mug of hot cocoa and marshmallows? I haven’t had Disney’s hot chocolate so I’m not going to judge. Chocolate can sometimes be that good! Happy Friday 🙂

  3. So this is what I have to look forward to in about 10 years when my daughter will be 13. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll make sure her dad is around!

    1. Yes!! My daughter and I laugh all the time! My best advice is to just let her talk about ANYTHING and ask ANY question, no matter how much it makes you cringe. Best to keep an open line of communication. There will be tough times. Lots of growing pains. You may feel like you’ve failed a time or two. But those moments where you see them thriving – making the right decisions – those are the moments to write down. They’ll take your breath away.

    1. Crazy the way teenagers think, right? Oh, it will be okay. Just a plane ride, a hotel, rental car, $200 a ticket plus all the food and inevitable swag. Shall I take out a mortgage now or later? 🙂

  4. More for me to look forward to, huh? I still have a few years to worry about teens in my house. Hee hee though this really did make me smile!

    1. I am constantly carrying my phone with the camera app open to find the right lighting. My daughter has learned to look for it as well. When I have visitors over for dinner and I’ve just turned out a blog-worthy dish, I have to explain what I’m doing as I carry the casserole into my bathroom. (I try to make a secondary dish for visitors in case they get yucked out by the thought.)
