I read this today over at Blessed and thought it was hilarious. You see it is now Sunday afternoon, and there is a chore at our home which was supposed to be done yesterday by our teenagers, it is not yet done...the teenagers made a request to go somewhere, we said no...and quite a few of these exchanges went forth. If you have a teenager, you will love this. If you don't have a teenager yet, prepare your sense of humor, it will help you get through "challenging" times!
Why? Because we said so.
How come? Because we love you.
Why are you and Dad so strict? We're sorry you feel that way.
Why don't you trust me? It's not you we don't trust.
Brittany is going, why can't I? We'd tell Brittany “no” too, if we were her parents.
You don't want me to have fun. Yes, that's it.
You don't care about me. You've found us out.
Are you trying to make my life miserable? You've uncovered our dastardly plan!
You and Dad aren't like other parents, you are way too old fashioned. What can we say, we're overachievers.
Are you trying to ruin my teenage years? How did you guess? Your dad and I wake up thinking of ways to ruin your life.
...and this is why animals eat their young.
