Denise: Do you have teen-agers?
Jenni: Four of them.
Denise: Well, that's your problem right there. Teen-agers definitely cause memory loss.
Then I came home from work and this conversation happened over the course of the evening:
Stockton: Mom, I owe $170 for swimming registration. And then I have to pay $70 at the school to be on swim team. And I still owe money for percussion.
Landon: Mom, Stock and I are out of lunch money. And basketball try-outs are coming up. My basketball shoes are too small. They hurt my feet.
Janessa: Mom, I have to pay $70 for our orchestra dresses. And $28 for the upcoming ETS trip is due. And our FLBA trip is $50. Oh, and violin tuition is due this week ($170).
So here is a title for a parenting book:
My Children Took My Memory and My Money
I have it ready for publication. Here is a sneak peek of the book in its entirety.
PS: Anyone want to hire some teen-agers?
