Wednesday Words – Teenager

My Teen has been especially exasperating this week so I came up with this little ditty for this weeks Wednesday Words!


Posing – as usual

My Teenager

My teenage boy, it’s safe to say

drives me mad its true,

the constant pestering all day

and cheeky comments too.

At times his teachers do despair

but luckily for him

they think he’s great, I’m not sure why

he puts no effort in.

His fun and charming ways ensure

he’ll win them all around

Intelligence and wit shine through

when not acting the clown.

He eats me out of house and home

and constantly wants cash

for clothes and haircuts, looking good

he really is quite flash.

Lifts to here and lifts from there

for him and all his friends

“where is this” and “can’t find that”

the torment never ends.

Girlsfriends too I can’t keep up

Snapchat, Skype and that

Instagramming all the time

I like to poke fun at.

He’s not all bad though, heart of gold

A mummy’s boy it’s true,

we laugh at almost anything

he’s kind and caring too.

I spoil my gorgeous teenage boy

because I love him so

he’s growing up so fast it’s mad

and I want him to know,

How very proud I am of him

he’s everything and more

My bestest friend in all the world

My son, who I adore.

  1. Lovely – sounds exactly how I would love Lucas to grow up. A true credit to you. Great poem #prose4t

  2. Oh the teenage years – you capture why I am so nervous about them already!

  3. This is absolutely lovely! Your love for him shines through all of it even the bits where he’s driving you mad! My boys are only small but I hope I can describe them as ‘my bestest friend’ when they are teenagers! #prose4T

      I think my Teen is the most wonderful person, but he’s far from perfect and we have difficult times. They’re so vulnerable at this stage, yet it’s so endearing (and exhausting). I have the best laughs with him though and I love the silliness of his little teenage circle of friends, boys and girls. It’s another world lol x

  4. The teenage years scare me! I have it all to come!
    Lovely poem! x

  5. Awwwwwwww! With the face I wasn’t expecting such happy words. I can totally see how my grumpy 6 year old is going to turn out when I look at that picture, but I know I’ll feel exactly the same!

  6. Awww this is so lovely Carolynne, just catching up on your blog – hope you are OK. L x

  7. Awwww so sweet brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye x absolutely lovely x

  8. I love ‘my best friend in all the world’

  9. This is great – such brilliant words and I shall look forward to writing something similar when Grace is older 🙂 Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought x

  10. What a beautiful poem. It brought tears to my eyes. My son is only 12, yet I recognised some of him in it – he drives us mad at him, yet teachers and other adults adore him!

  11. Love it. With a 14 yo boy these are words that I can identify with … once I replace gaming with skyping etc!!
