Alright Fine.

I admit it.

I'm Pissed!

My Mother bought my eleven yr old, lip peircing, lying, wanna be goth daughter black converse that go all the way to the knee.

I would never have bought those for her, I don't think I am going to allow her to wear them to school and now my mom had CREATED a fight for me. How about, "Gee Preteen A, I don't think your mom would allow her preteen to wear something like that, how about we find something a little more age appropiate" But NO....

Thanks mom for helping to drive that looming wedge between me and my daughter just a little farther.


  1. Oh NO! Can you make your Mom return them AND explain to Preteen A why she has to return them? Of course, your daughter will be devastated, but this is a parenting decision not a grandparenting decision. I feel you pain because I went through something similar with a cell phone given to a 13 year old. All parties involved knew that we did not want her to have one. We made the "gift" giver return it. It was horrific, but we did make a point. Again I feel for you.

  2. Yikes, I'd be pissed too. Sorry doesn't seem like the right thing to say, but i'm sorry that you have to deal with this situation.

  3. I saw them. yeah, you're right, your not going to be thrilled...
