..there are some big improvements. She has changed her friendship group and on the whole seems a lot happier. There have been the occasional ups and downs and outbursts but these seem more ‘normal’ and in keeping with what I expected of the teenage years. She hasn’t hit me or her Dad for some time and is maturing into quite a lovely young woman. I know this could all change again overnight but it is good to see glimpses of light at the end of the tunnel….(..I just hope that light isn’t an oncoming train!!)

The outbursts are happening regularly in school as well as at home. She had calmed down a lot but then started becoming violent again. I don’t know how to move this forward at all – it feels like a nightmarish “Groundhog Day” experience.
she just left for her last day of high school. Yesterday was her last day of finals. Today they are going downtown to the convention center to “practice” for the ceremony tonight, then back to school for a senior cookout for lunch. She has to go to Senior Breakfast on Monday.
I can’t wait to post her graduation picture and mark this complete tonight!!!!!!!
Graduation is tomorrow night! I can’t believe it’s here!
She’s so stressed about graduation and the changes she’s about to go through in her life. She’s been asking for my advice about almost everything. She wanted me to help her pick out her clothes today LOL
We’ve been hanging out more. Shopping, dinner out, watching tv together. This is the “kid” I remember. I know technically she’s an adult now, but she’ll always be my little girl.
She graduates in 9 days! I can’t believe she’s almost out of high school. It’s kinda bittersweet.
is June 3rd. I’m going to mark this complete after graduation!
Today is my daughter’s 18th birthday!
It seems like just yesterday that she was born. The only thing missing on this special day is her father. I wish he had lived long enough to see this day. We miss him. He would be so proud of the young woman she’s become.
Things have been much better lately. She’s been less moody. She’s more communicative. She’s not giving me as much crap about the things I do and how I spend my time.
She’s still asking me for more details than she really needs to know. If I say I’m running errands, she wants to know what kind of errands, that type of thing. Sometimes I answer her with details but usually I tell her it doesn’t really matter.
She spent the summer at a friend’s house. She was mad at me and thought it would be better if she wasn’t home. I let her because I didn’t want to deal with her crap everyday.
I made her come home when school started. Now that she’s back she thinks she should know where I am every second of the day…. If I make plans she suddenly wants to spend time with me. She gets angry and upset because I’m not there for her.
I’ve been staying at a friend’s house for the past week. I came home for a bit today. She had stayed home from school claiming to be sick. Same old BS with her. I got a call from my friend telling me about a job interview he just scheduled. She got upset. She left the room and cried. It’s always drama with her.
I’m ready to leave again.
