"You and dad seriously never stop ruining my life" Gotta love texting.

Uncle...Uncle....Uncle...I give up!!!!

When I held my firstborn daughter in my arms, almost 18 years ago, for the first time...I never envisioned the drama and turmoil that the teen years consist of. I never envisioned that my daughter, the precious child I held almost 24 hours a day, would hate me and want nothing to do with me. If I had known that as a teenager, she would pull away from me when I hugged her... that she would stop confiding in me and that she would pull away so completely, I would have held her longer. I would have rocked her to sleep longer. I wouldn't have wished those days of a clingy toddler were over quicker. I would have cherished EVERY little clingy moment! I miss being the center of their world and when they are older and growing up...its kind of lonely.

Hopefully I will survive. Hopefully, one day she will treasure me as she once did.
