1. Flavored Creamer
And not just any Taquitos. Oh, no, no. We prefer the steak and cheese variety. And no off brands, thank you very much. Well, last week I scored when Publix offered these babies buy one get one free.
4. Ice Cream
Moose Tracks are a favorite, but any port in a storm seems to be the teenage motto.
5. Heated Mattress Pad
Many years ago my good friend went through trials and tribulations with her teenage son. And as she wrung her hands and prayed and cried, an older, wiser mother gave her a simple piece of advice: Bake cookies.
Sometimes we really do want to throttle these kids of ours (and I'd hazard a guess that the feeling is mutual). Life sometimes seems to degenerate into an endless litany of instructions barked from my mouth to Tim's head-phoned ear.
Brush your teeth! Practice the piano! Take out the trash!
A dose of TLC helps.
For us, it helps a lot.
