OMG!! My teenager let me in her room!!

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Something strange happened in my house last night, my daughter actually let me in her room, and for more than 5 minutes. Those of you who have teens understand what I'm talking about, cuz I swear when she's home she's in her room with the door closed. She usually doesn't even want the dog in there! She's not doing anything that she shouldn't be when she's in there, she just wants to be alone.

I'm sure she only let me in because she was changing sheets and wanted help!! I'll take what I can get. We had a very nice conversation and I think I was in there for about 30 minutes. Even my son was knocking on the door checking to see that we were ok! I've got to enjoy these moments as she go off to college in four short years.

I did get on the scale today, no weight loss, but no gain either, so I'll take that as a win.

I did get my run in this morning. This was the first day this week that I've been able to work out in the morning. I feel so much better about my running time today.

Tonight we have my daughter's high school orientation so she can tour the school and all that fun stuff!!

Thanks for reading and have an awesome day!!

    Wow, you went in her room! That is a miracle in itself when dealing with some teenagers. When my daughter (23) was a young teen we used to live in an old mobile home, air circulation was a real problem in the back bedrooms. She'd be in there with all her little electronic gadgets turned on and it would get so hot and stuffy in there. My husband became so worried about her locking herself up in her room all the time that we removed her door and gave her a shower curtain instead. Might sound weird but it worked for us. Enjoy your pre college time. High School can be the most enjoyable time in a kids life if they experience those years with supportive and involved parents.

    Keep Running! Maybe next week your H.H Ugh will be nicer, if not pick him up and throw him out the window!

    emoticon I understand! I have a teenager! I cherish my real conversations with him, otherwise he gives me what I call, iPod answers, he is always on it, messaging friends and when I talk to him he nods his head and gives me, "uh-huh...yeah...ok...but hasn't heard a word I said. I'm so glad you had a special moment with your dd. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is a great accomplishment! Teenagers are fun, aren't they?
    We ended up putting a portable doorbell at the beginning of the hallway to daughter#3's room. If it was rung, she had a few minutes to respond (more like a few minutes to come back to earth) before anyone got to her door. Not that that meant anyone went into the room. It was more so that when we knocked, she wasn't startled.
    I hope that you all had a great time at the orientation. This is a wild/scary/thrilling time for all of you. Enjoy the ride, it'll be quick. emoticon

    I have to chuckle a little while reading your blog. While I didn't not let anyone in my room when I was a teenager, I definitely preferred people leave me alone. Glad your daughter let you in and you had a good conversation!

    Also about the run in the morning. That must have felt amazing!

    What an honor, seriously! I never had that happen, but one of my sons has never been ashamed to be with me in public--even at my highest weight. He's in his 30s and we still "hang out" together at times.
