I remember when my little brothers went through it, I was so grossed out, I didn’t want to be around them with their smell, their zits, their voice, their overall ugliness/ackwardness. It was too gross to deal with.
Now, it’s my son. My BABY is pube’n.
Zits! Hair! B.O! BONERS!
I can’t take it, people.
I see the zits on my sons nose, and I want to pop them, but I’m like… PUBERTY! GROSS! YOU CAN’T TOUCH PUBERTY ZITS!
And don’t even get me started on the puberty ‘tude.
This morning, at 9:30am, my son YELLS AT ME from his bed.
“Turn that music down! You’re waking me up!”
Um. Excuse me, kid, but it’s almost 10am. When I was your age, I had to be up by 7 and scrubbing toilets by 7:15, after I had read the bible and prayed, of course. And you’re yelling at me that my music is WAKING YOUR LAZY ASS UP?
Aw hell no.
I don’t know how much of this I can take. :shudders:

    Oh god, you poor thing.
    We were 16 when my husband and I started dating. I don’t even think his balls had dropped yet. When I think back on how gross and all pubertly he was just like you described I have to shudder too.

    OH MY. I never thought about this. MY SON will have REAL BONERS! Not the cute little diaper change bigger wee wee that I laugh at, but real ones. And he will think about girls. (He’s already tit-happy at 14 months, he is always wanting to nurse as well.)
    At the same time, I can’t help but think that my daughter’s adolescence will be much worse. She’s already a drama diva.
    Not gonna think about that yet.
