I AM your mother

he said it

those words that I've been waiting for

"you're not my mum"

I got angry

and then sad

but I hid the tears behind anger

how bluddy dare he!

oh, but it hurt.

he doesn't have a choice, he can't run away

like Chloe did

I know he's a teenager

I know he's testing boundaries


a young adult

but really?

after all this time?

I thought we'd moved past this crap

I thought we'd never have to deal with this crap

I was wrong

and it hurt

He didn't say sorry

(I think I failed there)

but he knows it hurt

I think he did see my tears.

Maybe I won't have to hear those words again.

I doubt it

He's got a few more years of teenage left.

  1. Oh man, that sucks. Teenagers huh! Hope he apologised eventually.

  2. Oh damn. That makes me cry. Isn't it amazing that even when our children grow up, become totally independent, have their own families, we still feel their pain.

  3. Its just teenage angst he's just lashing out, I used to do it to my stepdad all the time. I know your situation is different but its probably still hormone driven. If he doesn't apologise straight away he'll at least realise later on that he was being horrible and hopefully come around.

  4. Oh that's awful. I'm so sorry Cate. Teens just don't think do they? :(

  5. I'm so sorry to hear that. I still cringe when I think of some of the horrible things I said to my mum when I was a horrible teenager. If it's any consolation, I regret every single one of them to this day x

  6. Oh no, I would feel so hurt too! I hope this passes and it's just a phase. As cliche as it sounds, I'm sure he loves you to bits. x

  7. Ouch, that sounds really tough ... :(. Hoping things are a little better now for you.
