Well tomorrow is Ryans birthday. He will be 13! I am not sure if I am ready to have 3 teenagers in the house. But ready or not here it comes.
Amber is now hating school. I guess some girls are really picking on her and one of her so called friends have started joining these girls.
Amber is picked on because she is 5'9" and is still as skinny as a rail. Amber is picked on because she talks to the "retarded" children and does not let people pick on them. Amber is picked on because she does not hang out with the cool kids and does not wear brand name clothes.
I however give Amber credit. Amber talks to the "retarded" children because she has a brother who is "retarded". Amber buys clothes that she can afford and those do not come with fancy labels.
Nikki is bitching because I volutold her to help my property manger do some work. Nikki does not have a job yet, so she does not know what it is to work for money. She is going to find out this week. Nikki is also mad because I am making her put half of the money towards her trips.
I do not blame Nikki for being upset. Once she turns 16 and gets a job she will realize what it is like to have money and how hard you have to work for it and how far it does not go. Nikki just has not gotten that life lesson yet. Amber on the other happy to work, and not have to pay taxes on it! Amber has learned that lesson.
Ryan and I went rounds and rounds this morning. Rusty finally told me to stop beating a dead horse
Every morning I have to look Ryan over and make sure that he has on nice clothes. This morning his socks did not match and he had holes in his jeans. I sent him back up to change. He comes down in pj bottoms. I sent him back up to change, and this time I followed. Ryan finally put on a pair of shorts.
I go through this every morning. Iwas so hoping that age would change this but I cant look at his birth age. His mental age is about 8 or 9, so I guess he is acting his age.
Today I am going to finish up some laundry and then I have some running around to do. I still need to go buy a cake mix, so I can make Ryan a birthday cake. I still have no idea what to get Ryan for his birthday. What do you get a kid that plays with nothing? I did get him a new bedding set. It has helicopters on it so I am sure that he will like it. However I know that no kid wants new bedding for his birthday.
Oh well, it is time for me to hit the ground running.
