Teenagers don’t understand why it’s not a good idea to start washing a greasy pan and then move onto the glasses.
They spend most of their time wondering if they should hang their clothes up or down.
And sometimes they insist on wearing the same clothes over and over again.
And they think that to clean the cooktop, you have to clean with both sides of the sponge. That’s why they have 2 sides, right?
Sometimes they try to give you a treat with their best intentions — but then they use the same sponge to clean the bathroom and the kitchen.
They can (and will) enter the house with very dirty shoes.
It seems to them that everything is clean.
Teenagers tend to think and do everything at the worst possible time — and don’t be alarmed if they burp at the table during a meal.
Sometimes they make mistakes, but who doesn’t?
Who can resist that tender look?
They usually think they know more about life than you do and that they can fool you.
Maybe they’ll wash all the dishes to make Mom happy — or because they learned that everyone must help out with the housekeeping, even though the dirtiest pot will always stay there, waiting for someone else to clean it.
But іn thе еnd, being a mother mеаnѕ bеіng аblе to mature, grow, аnd undеrѕtаnd that thе рurроѕе of lоvе is tо еvоlvе.
