How To Tell When You’ve Reached The Teenage Milestone of Ugh

When I first became a mom, I was informed that during the toddler years, Brian would make huge strides physically, intellectually, and emotionally.  These stages of development are called milestones.  Once our children reach grade school we begin to forget milestones, until we are slapped upside the head with the teenager one: the hormone milestone.

With it comes a new form of communication language which I didn’t study for two years in high school and one year in college.

It’s mostly mumbling sounds of “Ugh” or some sort of short, grumbling noise-thing which makes me think I’m going deaf from all the rock concerts I went to in the 70’s and the too loud 80’s music I danced to (OK still dance to).




“Gdmmmmmm mmmmmm m”

“How was your day?”


“Is that good?”

Shrug of the shoulders up with a “Hmm-m”

I think I understand the dog better.

Exactly when does this milestone end?

Until next time-

    Hmmm…that sounds like the way my wife talks, and she’s older than I am.

    Great courageous thing to say. This is a great source of inspiration.
