Teens are scary creatures....

I should know. I have two of them, currently. They do things that scare lots of years off of the lives of their mothers. Things that seem like normal marking the years, growing up activities...getting their drivers' licenses, gaining more freedom, spending more time with friends, dating....

Oh, that last one has me frightened. You see, we've almost reached that point where we told our oldest that she will be allowed to date. This has really made me think...and quake in fear.

Who was it that decided it would be a good idea for hormonal, curious TEENS to spend time together with a teen of the opposite sex?!? I think I want to STRANGLE whoever it was who came up with this notion. I KNOW how boys think. Even GOOD, solid, G0d-fearing boys. And one of them wants to DATE my little girl. This scares me...A LOT. And NOT just one young man...oh, no. She has been asked out by *2* young men THIS WEEK. HELP!!!

So, any words of wisdom for me?!? Because I'm starting to think that *I* may not survive this whole children dating thing....

Maybe you should buy her a copy of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" and brainwash her while you still have the chance! I know it's hard, Mama. I'll be praying for you! Love you...and yours...lots!!!

Sounds like fun to me..... Oh wait, I only have boys who are so far from liking girls that I haven't had to think about any of that!
