I single parent my daughter. I adore her of course. I am blessed to be witness to all of the energy, passion, and fearlessness that IS 17. Its an amazing , breathing thing, and it gives me new life myself.

My kid is a good person. Being a single mom for most of her life, sometimes our relationship is too friendly, that's what happens.

She put gauges in here ears, small ones and I hated but accepted them because she said she would only go so big. We'll, a year later they are pretty big and she had successfully hidden them from me until the other day. I freaked right out.

I have made this my hill to die on apparently.

I have to finish later, I'm in tears.
Everyone finds a way to push the boundaries at that age, like other people say it could be worse - it could be drugs or cutting or sleeping around. Its not that bad!

I went on a mountain biking trip right across the alps with some buddys, just camping out - my poor mum didn't want me too - she must of been worried out of her mind!!
