Today is guest post day, courtesy of a mystery draw over at Little Mummy. I was thrilled to find out I was swapping with Eggs, Cream and Honey, as obviously I love cake. I was less thrilled than when I found out she is up against me in the MAD blog awards, as her blog is as scrummy as her name suggests.
If you want the other half of the swap, you’ll find me over there today talking about my (cough) love of all things baking. So let’s give it up for Eggs, Cream and Honey! (Welcoming round of applause)…
Chances are if you’re the parent of a teenager, you may have heard the “everyone else” phrase shouted back at you more times than you care to remember. This is the catchphrase adopted by your teen in response to the “no you can’t” line us parents feel the right to exert on occasion. They say it to make us feel guilty, inept and generally out of touch with the mass of other parents who are saying “yes”.
Here are some of the privileges everyone else might be getting:
- a laptop of their own
- a bedtime/curfew of midnight
- unlimited texts and calls on their mobile phone
- co-ed sleepovers
- 18 and over games on their X-box
- access to Facebook whenever they want
- both Friday and Saturday nights out (sometimes Thursday too and don’t get me started on Orange Wednesdays)
