Bears on bikes. nailing jello to walls and other things that are exactly like parenting your kids through the teen years

My head is absolutely spinning. I love my kids and raising them has definitely stretched me in ways I’d never dreamed and made me a better person.

But lord help me…The teen years…. The hormonally driven wild highs, followed by sudden and dramatically fast drops, swooping up only moments before impact and soaring again and sucking everyone in the path of the storm along with it.

I never know which version of my teen will be the one walking through the door or whether it’s going to be a dance party or a red wedding.

The only thing less stable than a teenager is a martini glass filled to the rim with nitroglycerin, teetering on a tray carried by a blindfolded circus bear riding a unicycle on a tight wire that’s being yanked on by clowns.

And even then, the outcome is more predictable and less stressful. Lord have mercy…
