I am officially starting to hate preteens or tweens, or at least that age. Lately Warren is becomming such a know-it-all, (if I hear duh one more time, I swear his mouth will need its own zip code), such a little big for his britches monster child. The kid who used to wear what I bought him, and like it, know suddenly thinks he is some kind of midwestern, white gansta wanna be. Of course the fact that mom, won't let him wear his pants three sizes too big with his underwear showing to the world, only fuels his "poor me, my mom hates me, and wants to ruin my life" fire. I only feed, clothe, shelter, chauffer, throw birthday parties for, go swimming with, buy bikes for, take shopping, go to movies with, buy his own toystore for, and put up with bad music of him.. but apparently that equates to he isn't allowed to do anything and I never let him have anything. And of course the idea of his having to tell me where he is going and who he is going with, well that's just my trying to invade his privacy and ruin his life, because I might say no and then he wouldn't get to do it. And I have so much money, that of course I have no reason to get angry when he takes 12 cans of pop and gives them out to his friends, because after all money just grows on the trees in the back yard...

Somebody's ass is sooo deep in it right now..

I long for the good old days, when he would say no and scream and I could pick him up and move him, and stick him in his crib...

The curse has come full circle. I am raising the boy version of myself.. no wonder my mom just laughs when she hears what he is up to..

Does E-bay still have rules against people putting thier kids up for sale.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
