When my daughter was a toddler,
she would wake up in the mornings
with a smile on her face that rivaled sunshine.

She would then spend the rest of the day running around
like a young and fiery comet that had lost its target site
and didnít carry if it ever found it.

But, now she has become a teenager,
And of course, things have had to change...

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

Now upon awakening in the morning
instead of a smile that lit up the room
without benefit of sunshine ---
we are greeted by --
ďBut I donít want to get up!!!!
Mixed with cold, stony silencesÖ

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

Last year, when she turned twelve years old Ė
ďBut what do you mean that Iím not a teenager???Ē

On turning thirtee this year --
But Iím not thirteen until 2:35 in the afternoon.
After 2:35 P.M. --
Iím still not thirteen and Iím not a teenager!!

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!


Her worst revelation thus far has been Ė
ďWhat do you mean I have to listen to you?
But Iím a Teenager!

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

When choosing brassieres for the first time
at the lingerie store in Flemington Ė
ďWhy canít I have them all in Dark Pink?
But itís my favorite color!!

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!


When can I have a telephone in my bedroom?
But I donít know where my cell phone is?

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

I want an IPOD!
What do you mean I have to use
my allowance to pay for it?!

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

Okay, Iím a teenager,
But Iím not going to have any fun!!
When can I have tickets to a
Hannah Montana Concert?

FOR THEREíS A TEENAGER IN MY HOUSE &
HER MANY MOODS ARE WILD!!

Very realistic in your portrayal of a teenager.

Oh boy, am I ever glad that my teen has (so far) skipped most of the drama! True-to-life and humorous look at a teen girl. ( :

All of us mothers who have had the "dubious pleasure" of being mother to a teenager can relate to this very clever poem. Well done
