She Is 12 and I am Annoying

How many times have we heard the saying or words that being a mom is a “thankless” job?  Today was just a perfect reminder that no matter how well things are going with the kids, that little “bump” in the road pops up and then it all starts… I was not intending for this post, but it just happened to have landed in my lap this morning.  Why on earth do our kids just look at us with those blank stares?  When we are talking to them or asking questions, their faces are still and their eyes are on us, but you know that inside they are totally “over us”, frustrated, just bothered.  Would I ask questions if I knew the answers?  Okay maybe I would, only to see if they were paying attention, or maybe because I just want to have some chat time with them.
