Why I can't get enough sleep these days:
I have a 17 year old son who's finishing up
junior year in high school in the next few weeks. This weekend went like this...
1. Friday night, new scrape on car.
2. Later Friday night, we were at the movies, came home, went into bathroom to find remains of insane bloody nose. not cleaned up. If it was a LA Law episode, they would have been looking for the body.
3. Saturday morning. Found car window open after huge thunderstorm. Car soaked.
4. Son still in bed at 10:42 when job starts at 10:45.
5. Open food in bedroom.. Ants.
6. Sunday. Found out photography final project due Tuesday hasn't been started and camera was left at friends house.
7. Home late after curfew, cell phone dead.
8. Today is a yoga day for me!
PS Besides all this, He's a great kid!!!

Your wonderful post and illustration made me nostalgic for the years before my kids left home. It's all worth it, isn't it?

Motherhood and sleep, they don't go together very well.
Nice illustration.

All I can say is, I'm so ready for them to be grown up already. your illustration and story is all too familiar to me. Eeeeekkk. I wish someone had told me about these teenage years so I could have thought a little more carefully about what I was doing.

oh well.
