Life During Wartime


Yes. You know what I'm talking about. When your house is absolutely quaking with the ramifications of having children later in life: you hit menopause and they hit puberty AT THE SAME DAMN TIME. I should have married and had my kids by the time I married.

See these 2 happy kids? Of course they are not mine. Mine would be sharpening their fangs, growling, glaring, huffing, puffing, whining, rolling their red, evil eyes at me, all the while eating all the food in the house, using up all the cell phone minutes and monopolizing the computer as if they paid for it.

This is Ugly. Very, very ugly.

I can't see, am losing my hair, insane from lack of sleep, bargaining for the chocolate and sweating like an SOB.

I'm not sure I can verbalize any more on this subject.

I like to use Chaste Tree for balancing those hormones. I don't know what to do with the kids. They do come back around.

That made me feel a wee bit better about having my first at 17.

Good luck dearie!

Oh wow....having kids in puberty. I have two, both boys. Thankfully I don't have menopause to add into the mix, but I can definitely relate where the children are concerned. Mine fight with one another like cats and dogs.
