For those who are wondering what this blog is about, I am the mother of twin teenage boys, who are almost 14 years old, as well as a 6 year old (heaven-sent) daughter. Following yet another discussion (or as he would say lecture) with my “man-child” it occurred to me that if this was happening to someone else it would actually be funny.
So I was inspired to start this blog, with a view to sharing some funny anecdotes with my friends, welcoming feedback and comments, other stories and experiences that might actually make me feel a little normal – because more often than not I feel like an impostor standing in my mothers shoes delivering home truths to teenage boys who look at me with such contempt sometimes I feel like shriveling up and dying.
To be fair, I seem to have one “man-child” currently (I do think he is actually 13 going on 23) and one quite normal teenager, who seems content to do normal teenage things.
Maybe it’s because I am a twin myself, now observing my very different twin boys, that it seems such an interesting study in human nature and the role of nurture versus nature.
Anyway, here goes my blog. It’s definitely not twitter (honestly for me a complete “twat”) but an opportunity for me to vent occassionally and hopefully amuse some of my friends. That said, this blog is designed to be largely anonymous, in the interests of protecting my sons from the embarassment of their clearly disturbed mother.
I hope you enjoy my stories and occasional rants. I for one am hoping it will prove to be largely cathartic. 🙂
