The wig debate!

Today I woke up to T dressed in her school uniform with her Hannah Montana wig and a hat on for school. After the last two days, I was not up for a round of fights, so I asked her once to take the wig and hat off. It turned into a war of words, and finally, in the car, I just reached over and took the hat and wig off of her head and put it in the backseat of the van. I sat thru a silent ride and a look of disgust from her, and then the debate started as we entered the school parking lot. Taylor-"Mom, I just wanted to see if my friends would notice me." Mom-"you look the same with the wig and hat, you would not fool anyone." Taylor- "I think you are the meanest mom alive that you won't allow me to dress in my wig." mom-"At this point, I don't care if you think I am Satan, but I will not allow you to be thrown out of school for breaking the rules on the dress code!" ...And then the final word from my daughter as she was exiting the car.."mom, you suck!" At this point, I was sitting speechless in the carpool line with a what the F**k look on my face!! I can not wait for this afternoon, I intend to show her how bad her little life can really suck!! I have the soap ready for her mouth and I have a list of chores for her that will take her days to finish! Happy weekend, T!!

Is "T" by chance a teenager or close to it. She sounds pretty normal to me. The joys of being a mom. I had 4 kids in 4 years--2 girls, a boy and a girl. Those years were definitely interesting--they all turned out pretty good. good luck.

Guess what my Mom said when I told her about the Wig Debate.

She said that T is the most Cutest Little Devil on the Planet & she would always do it right.

Haaaa! Mom & T are just alike.
