I did this page for the Dirty Scraps Challenge.
This is all about what one of my PEEVES is and what a Positive spin would be on the Peeve.
My journaling reads:
My 18 year old daugther thinking that she knows more then me. It doesn't matter how many times I give her my opinion about something, she is going to do the opposite. I know this from a recent expierence. She has gotten a couple of tattoos which I am totally not against, one on her back and one on the back of her neck. When she informed me that she wanted one on her wrist I tried to discourage this. Oh child of mine, you will regret that one day. You want to go to college and be a teacher one day, why would you want to put some stupid stars on your wrist that have no signifigance what so ever? What is the purpose of that? Not to mention that she is not going back to the same place that she got the first two tattoos, she is going to some random stranger to save a few extra bucks. Some girls that she works with went to this guy who works out of his house, and she was impressed with his work. I told her that she should really go back to the place that she has gone to before because she knows they will do a good job, but she wouldn't listen to me. So off she went.
Well guess what? She came home in tears. This guy did not do a good job on the stars on her wrist and messed one of them up. She was so upset. But being a mom I had to try and console her and not rub it in her face that "I TOLD YOU SO"
I know I have raised a good daughter. I know that she does well in school, stays out of trouble for the most part, and will be one of the first in our family to attend college. So I am proud of her. I know how I was at this age and even when I was 16 and 17, I was a nightmare for my parents for alot of things that I pulled as a teenager. So for Mariah to not listen to some of the things that I try to give her advise about, especially this whole tattoo thing being one of the worst things that she can do to disappoint me, I really must be thankful for that. I also know that as she gets older one day she will consider taking my advise for once. I remember as I got older I finally started hearing what my mother had to say. One day she will grow up. This is a fact, because I did.
