After 1 year, 1 month and 23 days… that woman who gave birth to the Teen finally crawled out from under her rock last night.
She sent me a Facebook message.
It was completely self-centered, and poorly spelled. (I hate it when people type messages like that in text short hand.. You= U, and = N, am = M etc… seriously, how much longer could it really take you to spell everything out?)
She claims to “miss her very much.”
“wants to start writing her very soon.”
I don’t buy it. I think she had a momentary pang of guilt.
Oh, and I almost forgot my personal favorite:
“I hope she is not facing some of the things I have had to face in my teen years.”
Well, if you were abandoned by your mother .. then yes, she’s going through that. Otherwise, I doubt it.
Give me a break.
I am going to tell her about herself this time. I’m done being nice, I’m done just letting her keep hurting her. If she wants to truly make an effort, then it will be up to the Teen to agree to it. But there will be clear expectations put on her. And with the baby due in a few weeks, I have a hard time believing that she’s going to pull it off.
But before I do anything, I’m going to talk to the Teen about it. See what she wants me to do. Maybe she wants to tell her off herself. My dear hubby didn’t really have anything to say about it when I read him the message. He’s so helpful sometimes. 😉
Well.. wish me luck. I’m going to talk to her after school..and in the mean time I’m going to work on composing my thoughts on the matter.
And make soup. It’s definitely a soup kind of day.
