Things I've Said to Our Teens

"C'mon! I didn't just fall of the back of a truck, you know!"

"Do you really think I was born this old?"

"Guess what?! I did ALL this and did it better than you! How do I know?...I didn't get caught!"


"How did we figure it out? Seriously? There was a movie based on this exact situation. It's called 'Ferris Bueller'."

"Excuse me, but didn't I tell you this would happen?"

"Nobody listens to me."

"I'm sorry, but didn't we tell you if you ever get into an accident to stop and exchange insurance information? Not- take off in a panic(in front of witnesses), dump the car (across the street from the police station) and run for home!"

"And you really believed that?"

"Next time you decided to try to pull the wool over our eyes and spend the night somewhere else other then where you told us you would be, perhaps you should take your GPS with you so you can find your way back to where you were supposed to be. That way you won't have to call us crying that you're lost after walking aimlessly from street to street at 6am."

"You what?!"

"Ohhhhh.... TRY me."

Do you have teens? What have you found yourself saying?
What were some goodies your parents told your teen self?


  1. hahahaha. I don't have teens, but I'm pretty sure I've said one or two of those things to my husband....

  2. Ha - love the Ferris Bueller reference! (#still one of my favorite movies!)

  3. I will never be ready for my 4 year old to be a teen.
    She is already starting to get sassy.
    I will NOT have it.
    ugh. teenagers.

  4. Haha, so true! When I was your age...(insert anything here). You are so busted (I love how they think they can get away with stuff). To my younger son, I sometimes have to escalate to "because I said so."

  5. Seriously....dumping the car?
    One of my class quotes I tell my girls is "the only time you can change a man is when he's in diapers".
