He Said, She Said: Teenage Attitude

You know all those funny and/or stupid little moments that happen in every marriage but nobody ever talks about? Well welcome to He Said, She Said: True Stories where I give you an unprecedented glimpse inside the marital dysfunction. You’re welcome.

Setting the Scene: One night last week as we sat gathered around the dinner table to eat. Matt asked Maia a question and her answer struck her dad as funny so he proceeded to tease her a little bit. She got huffy, rolled her eyes, stomped up stairs and slammed the door. The following took place immediately after her door slammed.

He Said: What the hell was that about?

She Said: You can’t tease her like that. She’s a girl and she’s sensitive to teasing.

He Said: I don’t like that attitude she’s been dishing out lately.

She Said: You mean the teenage girl attitude?

He Said: She’s 7.

She Said: And?…..

He Said: It’s too soon for that attitude. The eye rolling, the sighing, the slamming doors and stomping feet. And the looking at me like I’m an idiot. It’s like….

She Said: Having 2 wives?

Silence.

The End.

  • LOL!

  • Oh My Goodness!!! I don’t think McHunky is ready for what is instore over the next few years. Around the time my eldest turned 8, another mom reminded me hormones kick in WAY before puberty starts. Thank Goodness I was warned. We are now there and at least I am prepared. Pete on the other hand…it’s just fun to watch him deal with one in puberty and another headed that way…Daddies and their girls!

  • Ha, we get the same attitude from our 7 year old son. I tell him he better be a really easygoing teenager because he’s using up all his attitude allowance now.
