I Think Mini Maniac is a Cougar

Was it my blog that inspired her?  Was it the television show?  Nah, she neither reads my blog nor watches that television program.  She is quite the little wild woman though!  A veritable hormonal mess, if you want to know the truth.  I often wonder if someday we will try to balance the hormones of our teenagers.

Ok, so back to the Mini Cougar.  She had a new friend on Facebook.  Since I also happen to be my daughter’s friend on Facebook I was curious about this new boy.  I saw that his birth date was the same as her OLDER sister.  No way Jose!  You can kiss that “relationship” goodbye!  Well, what I really said was “It’s perfectly fine to be friends with him honey, but he’s too old for you.”  A few days later, The Boy calls up Mini Maniac (MM) and tells her he has lied about his age.  Turns out he is two years YOUNGER than MM.  Bwaaaahahahahahaa!  I can’t stop laughing!  I can’t help it!  THIS is what I said to her next “Honey, is he dating you because his Mom is too cheap to get a babysitter?”  Luckily, MM has a sense of humor and laughed right along with me.  I don’t think I could have gotten away with that a few weeks ago during Hormone Hell Week.

So for a few weeks……..Bwaaaaahahahahahahahaha!

    LOL!!! Reminds me of the movie Must Love Dogs, except the Cougar lied about her age, she was really 61, NOT 16!!! And the couger bait lied too, he was only 15. Awwww, technology 🙂

    What a cute story ;-). I raised three teenaged girls (and a boy on the tailend of the mix) and I certainly understand the things you mention. I was a single mom for over 12 years with them so that lent to a lot of stress and undo worry frankly. It was an adventure to say the least. I had three cycles going on all at once (i had a hysterectomy at 29 so I was done with mine by the time my girls started theirs) and my son was pitiful dealing with slamming doors constantly and hormones flying around everywhere and not knowing what the heck it was. I can say this, my son is 20 now and he is one of the most understanding and considerate men (with women’s needs and issues) that I’ve ever known! Guess it served him well. 🙂

    Hang in there, your two are young, it may not get easier in the next few years, but it will most certainly get more interesting! Enjoy as much as you can!

    Hi Diane,

    I am going to have to rent that movie! I have never seen it! How are you, by the way? 🙂


    Ah, it is definitely an adventure. I also have three girls and a boy! The boy is 21, married and just gave me my gorgeous grandson. My oldest daughter is 20 next week and just the two remaining Maniacs at home. Always an adventure! 🙂 I admire you for doing it alone. I can’t even begin to imagine! Yep, we all cycle within a week of each other. It’s 3 weeks of FUN! Haha! Hmmm, I think I have a blog post on this subject! Stay posted!
