It's Not Fail Proof. Just Real Life.

Here is the intro to our new e-book. [If you have no idea what I'm talking about go here and here.] I wanted to give you guys a sneak peek and something of substance that you can forward on to your friends and start the buzz goin ;) 

This book will have humor, depth, and practical advice on the ins and outs, ups and downs and all arounds of adolescence. We're not Dr's. We're not even professionals. We're just a mother and a daughter who have successfully walked in and out of this chapter of adolescence. My mom is my greatest confidant. She is who I want to become. 

This is not fail proof, it's real life. 

So, here's a comical reality from your daughter's point of view:

What every Mom & Dad should know about their teenage daughter[s]
-We do love you, even though we sometimes pretend we don't.
-No, we don't like it when you go shopping with us because we never get what we actually want. [That's probably a good thing]
-Yes, we lie to you. In our minds it's called “fudging just a little because that cute boy will be there", but whatever.
-We hate one piece bathing suits.
-All the cool kids do it.
-We do fear that we'll never get married.
-We know we can go to you at any time, but keep reminding us.
-Our taste in music is way cooler than yours.
-We always need hugs and kisses.
-We look at ourselves in the mirror at least 100 times a day and think we're too fat so we compensate by “dieting”.
-School really is hard. We're not making that up.
-When we are acting embarrassed because you're goofing around, we really are embarrassed.
-No, I don't think I'm the only person alive, but I do think I'm the only one that matters at this moment.

And lastly,
-We don't really know what we're feeling or thinking or doing either.
