Random acts of blondness, part the fifth

The emotional rollercoaster that is 14 is on the upswing for the moment, bringing us another installment of Random Acts of Blondness.

"Omigod, Mommy, I had the worst blond moment," she burbled as we ate dinner together in harmony for the first time in days ... ok, weeks.

"When I was at the mall with T and H, T's boyfriend was giving me a hard time about everything ...

"He kept asking me questions. And then he asked me to name a country that started with 'U' ..."

She stopped, looked at me and then covered her face with her hands.

"I said Europe."

We both laughed until we couldn't breathe.

Ah, my girl is back.

God that kid is awesome!

I love it!

I love that she could laugh about it!

Karen said...

Teen girls are such interesting creatures. I'm glad she was able to laugh it off.

Sunshine said...

Not a country AND not starting with U. This is totally something I would do!!

Make her feel better, and tell her this:

Whenever the radar detector in the car goes off, our 14yo boy looks up at the sky. If I were nicer, i would tell him that's a different kind of radar, but I love the laugh we get out of it EVERY TIME...

Bless her, that's exactly what I would have done.

Karly said...

Ha! She cracks me up!

From what I hear they emerge as themselves every few weeks...I don't know. I don't have a real teenager yet. I only have one who THINKS she's a teenager.

Sarah said...

OMG! That made me laugh so hard!! It totally sounds like something I would say...and I'm not even blonde *lol*

Congrats on having a peaceful dinner for a change!!

YAY! I'm so glad Europe is a country again. I'm sure that's what the EU is hoping :)

NO WAY...love it. Please keep her away from Jay Leno. I watched Jay Walking last night and you just have to shake your head at what some of the responses were.

As the first post I've read on your blog, I have to say I'm now a fan. Our youngest has the exact same sort of blonde moments.. Makes for great entertainment for the rest of us :P She, luckily, is also very good at having a giggle about it (once's she's blushed three shades of purple). Great post, great kid :)

You're really not doing much to help me get over my stereotype about cheerleaders, now are you? ;-)

At least she realized her error. She gets +50 points for that!

Marmarbug said...

LMAO!!! I would do the same thing!

Kaytabug said...

I don't know what I love more the fact that she called you Mommy, or that she owned up to the blonde moment!!

Qtpies7 said...

LOL that is great! We all do that sometimes. Some of us are more blond than others, but I think we all have a bit of blond!
