Never Again

Mark my words... I will never, ever, EVER chaperone a whole host of teenagers again.

Whew! It will wear you out.

I had 5 boys and 4 girls... one poor boy was not "partnered up," but he's the oldest and was basically everyone's "big brother."

There was a LOT of snuggling, cuddling, and kissing going on. I felt like mega-bitch...stop that, behave, get off that bed, nobody under blankets, etc.... the hardest part was getting the girls into a separate room every night. They tried to wear me down so that I would fall asleep before they did, but, unfortunately for them, it didn't happen. So, they'd come in the girl's room, I'd lock the door... they'd talk and giggle for an hour or more...then the texting would commence.

Guess who they were texting? The boys in the next room, of course.

Finally, they'd lie down and immediately drop into deep sleep.

Then, morning came and it started all over again....

I couldn't be more grateful to be at work.

When my daughter was dating, I embarrassed her to no end. When she would get to close to her date, I would yell, "Space Police, Space Police!!" and make them break apart. She would be spitting mad at me, but I didn't care. I had to do what I had to do to keep her safe.

Glad it's over for you. I wouldn't have even chaperoned four girls without the boys, too much stress, better you than me. You must have nerves of steel.
