New Driver on August 25

-- Sent from my Palm Pre

DeeJay took his driving test on Tuesday, August 25 and passed. Then we went to get his license. I shed a tear that day, both of sadness and joy. Sad that he is growing up so fast and will soon be out on his own and no longer need me. Joyous to watch him grow into a wonderful young man and see all that God has planned for him.

To all my fellow parents, this is a little long, but I thought you might enjoy it......

Poem to MOM/DAD

My son came home from school one day,
With a smirk upon his face.
He decided he was smart enough,
To put me in my place.

'Guess what I learned in Civics Two,
that's taught by Mr. Wright?
It's all about the laws today,
The 'Children's Bill of Rights.'

It says I need not clean my room,
Don't have to cut my hair
No one can tell me what to think,
Or speak, or what to wear.

I have freedom from religion,
And regardless what you say,
I don't have to bow my head,
And I sure don't have to pray.

I can wear earrings if I want,
And pierce my tongue & nose.
I can read & watch just what I like,
Get tattoos from head to toe.

And if you ever spank me,
I'll charge you with a crime.
I'll back up all my charges,
With the marks on my behind.

Don't you ever touch me,
My body's only for my use,
Not for your hugs and kisses,
that's just more child abuse.

Don't preach about your morals,
Like your Mama did to you.
That's nothing more than mind control,
And it's illegal too!

Mom, I have these children's rights,
So you can't influence me,
Or I'll call Children's Services Division,
Better known as C.S.D.'

Mom's Reply and Thoughts

Of course my first instinct was
To toss him out the door.
But the chance to teach him a lesson
Made me think a little more.

I mulled it over carefully,
I couldn't let this go.
A smile crept upon my face,
he's messing with a pro.

Next day I took him shopping
At the local Goodwill Store.
I told him, 'Pick out all you want,
there's shirts & pants galore.

I've called and checked with C.S.D ........
Who said they didn't care
If I bought you K-Mart shoes
Instead of those Nike Airs.

I've canceled that appointment
To take your driver's test.
The C..S.D. Is unconcerned
So I'll decide what's best..

I said 'No time to stop and eat,
Or pick up stuff to munch.
And tomorrow you can start to learn
To make your own sack lunch.

Just save the raging appetite,
And wait till dinner time.
We're having liver and onions,
A favorite dish of mine..'

He asked 'Can I please rent a movie,
To watch on my VCR?'
'Sorry, but I sold your TV,
For new tires on my car.
I also rented out your room,
You'll take the couch instead.
The C .S.D. Requires
Just a roof over your head.

Your clothing won't be trendy now,
I'll choose what we eat.
That allowance that you used to get,
Will buy me something neat.

I'm selling off your jet ski,
Dirt-bike & roller blades.
Check out the 'Parents Bill of Rights',
It's in effect today!

Hey hot shot, are you crying,
Why are you on your knees?
Are you asking God to help you out,
Instead of C.S.D..?

Send to all people that have teenagers, have already raised teenagers, have children who will soon be teenagers
Or those who will be parents someday OR ANYONE WHO'D JUST GET A LAUGH

Birthday Card Swap

I have found a new fun thing to do with my scrapbooking, SWAPS! For those that don't know what swaps are, it's when you sign up for with a group of people to make things and then swap out what you have made for what the other people have made. I am currently doing swaps on the Cardmaker Magazine forum. I have done a bookmark, some Christmas cards and here is the Birthday card I made for another swap. Let me know what you think.

Jay's Birthday

We celebrated Jay's birthday today, we had the family over as usual and everyone had a good time. He received all money as gifts, which for a teenager is always welcome. I love when the family comes over and we just eat, laugh and have a good time together.
