Haiku Friday: It's a teen thing

Have you commented on my blogoversary post? There's a gift card at stake, so what are you waiting for?

Haiku Friday

Roo-girl, my Roo-girl ...
What's up with you, my Roo-girl?
Are you just a teen?

You giggle, you cry
in just the blink of an eye.
It makes my head spin.

I was where you are
when dinosaurs roamed the earth,
not so long ago.

Times are diff'rent now
but yet they are just the same.
It sucks to be us.

My girls, at the sweet age of almost four, are already causing my head to spin at times. I'll be lucky if it's still attached come the teen years :)

I'm sure this behaviour is a teen rite of passage! Legendary! But it doesn't make it any easier to weather a teen in the house! Just stay calm and think other thoughts!

Right there with ya. It sucks to be us.

Wonderful 'Ku. Wonderful subject for a 'ku. As a matter of fact - it really isn't fair now that I think about it - it's like having a 'ku machine at your disposal, constantly feeding you new 'ku material. I'm gonna call her "Roo 'Ku" Roo.

I am really dreading the teen years!

I can hardly wait for my girls to get there. Not really! The boys were/are too easy methinks! At least I have two boys to finish off with, so we can end on a higher note. Maybe. :)

The mood spins are amazing, legendary. When La Petite was a teen, I was dealing with Amigo's Aspergers and school problems, too. How did I do it? Well, we do it.

Boy teenagers are no different. Mines about to find himself shipped to Abudabi. Those damn hormones are evil. Evil I tell you.

Meg is 19 and right when I think things are starting to calm down emotionally, I'm thrown for another loop. By the time I've recovered from her teen years, Gaby Rose (who is three) will be there. Oiy!

Eventually, this too shall pass.

You couldn't pay me enough to be a teen again!

Momisodes said...

Love the way you Ku'd this. Captures that angst so well :)

Karen said...

I know exactly what you speak of. Yoi.

carma said...

very nice!!! I have a teen myself- but a boy. I'm thinking boys are much easier at that age...

JennyMac said...

Ahhh..teens. While our son is only 2, I have a 16 year old SIL. Her parents..poor things..she is smart but SASSY. But then again, I can relate. LOL. I thought I knew everthing at that age.
