First, she has decided to be the trainer/water girl on the school football team. Then she gets a beau,
*quick side note: I refuse to use the "boyfriend" word. Odd I know but it helps me cope*
His name in A.J. and he seems really sweet.
Ok this I can handle. I know I can......
Supervised time together and random text checks. Got it!
I can't discuss her insane hormones because that will cross the "teenage line". I'll comply....for now.
And then when I thought I could handle it all. She took out the big guns. She told me that I embarass her. :(
It broke my heart. And after about an hour of feeling sorry for myself I went to her room and said, "I'm the mommy and have earned the right to embaress you!"
"I don't wear makeup because I want to spend that extra time in the morning with you. I don't wear fancy clothes because I'm busy buying them for you. I don't have a new house or car because I spend all our extra money on you so, suck it up and let me love you the best way I know how!"
Then for the first time in the 6 years that Amelia has been with us she gave me a big sloppy kiss and hug.
She use to tolerate hugs and cheek kisses but last night a wall fell and I wouldn't have it any other way.
