The Joys of Moody Teenage Boys!!!

Today’s 44 is a Special Ops move!!!  Well, maybe not but I did see it in a book called Special Ops Fitness.  It is a reverse crunch and it started off fairly easy until about 8 or so and then it was HARD!!!

Garage Boot Camp was fun – some weights and cardio – my favorite!!!  We did Tone and Hold Boot Camp.

Most school days, the high light of my day is when Jordan gets off the bus.  (Hunter usually has stuff after school so he gets home later.)  Jordan will have a snack and sit and tell me ALL about his day – lots of days he talks for over an hour!!!  I do my very best to always be available at this time because I don’t want to miss out on him sharing with me.

Jordan is usually a very happy positive person – pleasant and fun to be around.  Except when he’s not!!!  For some reason yesterday afternoon he was in a mood and the longer we talked the worse it got.

Fortunately, he went down and did his homework and then chilled for a bit before dinner.  By dinner he was back to being his normal sweet self – HOORAY!!!

This morning Hunter is in a mood because he slept through his alarm!!

I always tell him it’s no big deal and that he still has plenty of time to get ready – not the point!!!  OY!!!!!

Hopefully he won’t let this ruin his day – kind of early in the day to decide it’s not going to be a good one!!!

Not sure that I’m prepared for the moodiness of the next few years – hopefully it is just occasional and not the new norm!!!

Anyone else have moody teenagers or other family members?  

Happy Tuesday!!!
