Wheres My Mini Me

Wheres My Mini Me

Ever wonder why it's so hard to raise a teenager? I mean they write books about it, everybody talks about it. Have you ever really thought about the core reason why it's so hard?

So I'm in the middle of raising my last one, let's be clear... the first two were boys and much easier. Girls are just harder.

We raise our daughters to be fighters to be warriors in tutus, to be salty and sweet. We raise them to be like us right? And that's when it hit me... i'm raising a teenage version of myself. All the good and bad that's in me is staring me right back in the face. But wait, there's more, A few of the traits that show up in my husband that sometimes frustrate me, yeah let's sprinkle those into her too.

Recently I was in a discussion with this strong-willed daughter and I realized. She's trying to negotiate with me. Hold up, I negotiate for a living sweetheart, back up. I'm literally arguing with myself. I stand there in this moment and I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.

I've always had the belief that if you want something you have to ask at least five times for it. Yes, I've probably raised all the kids this way too. So that mini version of me has gotten very clever in how she asks for things when she really wants it. What's crazy is sometimes she doesn't even stop at five times! And that's when I realize it's me all over again. Me staring at mini me.

So when you are raising a teenager and you have those hard moments with them, like clash of the titans. Just remember you are just mad because you are dealing with a younger version of yourself. So the best thing to do is laugh and carry on, cause you already have them figured out! 😜
