So fun times with DH and SD13 lately.
They've been 'best buds' with DH watching shows with her (me retreat to bedroom because I 1) don't want to watch the horrible shows and 2) DH 'getting into it' with her and exclaiming all about. Just stop. I know it's because he cannot figure out what to do with her but it's awful.
Last night I overheard this exchange...there was a tampon ad and SD13 says something about how ridiculous the ad was because it showed teens/women exercising - use our tampon and no worries thing. I kept mouth shut. "WHO exercises when they are on their period? That's just stupid." Says SD13 who is the laziest teen, no exercise even on the best of days, who does nothing on her period but lay around and complain and sometimes stays home from school. DH AGREES with her. Never mind ME who is in the house and is an avid active person...still keep my mouth shut. Then DH says, "You know, some women who exercise don't get their period." SD13, "Really?" Me - I CANNOT KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT NOW, "DH, no, you are not correct. It's about unhealthy fat ratio and an out-of-balance endocrine system. It's not about exercising...add a few more things about how unhealthy it is."
You know, because SD13 needs more information about unhealthy habits to move her right along with ideas about how to get rid of her period.
Anyway, afterwards, there's silence and whispering and giggling.
AND COVER IS 100% OUT OF ANY ASSISTANCE WITH SD13 AND DH.
