As a teenager, I’d secretly lift clothes from my mom’s closet and wear them. When Mom left for work in the morning, I’d wait for her car to pull out of the driveway. Then I’d go into her closet and slip on her expensive designer jeans before I left for school. In the afternoon, I’d get home before she did and hang her jeans back in their place…
Did you ever do things like that when you were a teenager?
Remembering my own experiences as a teen helps me to keep perspective when my kids do things that make my blood boil. Even though parenting teens is like riding a roller coaster, it’s the phase I’ve enjoyed most as a mom.
Today I’m guest posting for Kaylene Yoder’s series, “30 Days of Love from a Mother’s Heart.” Follow this link over to Kaylene’s to read about what happened when my mom found out about the jeans.
