The Mom-is-Ridiculous Campaign

You know that time in life when you have a deceptively cute little girls and then the hormone aliens take away your otherwise pleasant and helpful daughter and she goes on the tampon terrorist roller-coaster? Well congratulations to me because girl number three is mounting a mom-is-ridiculous campaign.
Well, ridiculous except for that part where she needs to calculate the area of an irregular triangle or needs a ride to volley ball practice or needs to extrapolate the many aspects of Justin Beber’s musical genius and her bff is not available. At such times I am acceptable, if for only brief periods of time.
I am recently on the end of the latest parental, teen jousts, “Thank you mom. Thank you for having such low faith in me that now I will fail (insert whatever topic and/or activity).” You are very welcome honey and any time you need any additional assistance, please consider my services which are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Evidently, per the soon to be thirteen-year old, I am NOT funny which is strange because I find myself very amusing.
