And she doesn't even want a prom dress...

She just wants to jump right into the dating scene and by-pass all the niceties.
She wants to date. And she wants to date, BAD!

Bad Boys.
Boys that are far older than she is... and boys that have been around the block a time or two.

Men that have already fathered children and who don't even care how hard it is to raise young ones... because they're the 'love 'em and leave 'em" types.

She has no idea what she's in for, and she hates my guts right now for not allowing her to do what she wants, even though I do know what's best for her.

I understand what she's going through, because it wasn't all that long ago, that I was young myself... and I remember the longing for love and the dreaming of someone who would love me forever.
I remember the urges and the excitement and the new-found knowledge that I had the power over the opposite sex.

We've had "the talk", and she said she understood.

I've held her as she's cried... and then she pushes me away and runs off and hides in her room.

The screams of frustration and anger at my saying "no" are breaking my heart, but she doesn't want to listen to a single word I say anymore.

Our close bond and treasured moments are just a memory now, because she's blossomed as a woman, and she's moved beyond my reach.

And I think back and wonder what I must have put my poor mother through, all those years ago...




At least my potential suitors didn't pee on every door in the house.

You had me going! And I will refrain from any drug-induced one liners here when I saw the picture. YOU'RE HYSTERICAL!!!! LOVE YOU, GIRLIE. Thanks for the support and props at my place today in my "desperate" hour of need. :)

W.V.? Bratilec - now that's just WEIRD considering your subject matter. A hybrid of brat and smart alec!

I knew this was going to be about a cat! It's so hard on the mommies when the girls grow up, lol!

Hold her close and give her kisses and hugs. My poor baby dog is not doing well and it is breaking my heart.

Looks like she's getting to the age to have that doctor visit... She has gorgeous eyes. Keep her on the straight and narrow, Katie.

Great post.

No prom dress is good. They're so skimpy now days that every TOM, Dick, and Harry would have to be nutered!
