Good for your middle son for trying to keep a positive attitude even though he was obviously disappointed. That's got to be very difficult, especially as an adolescent because the whole fitting in with peers thing is so important during that time. My heart goes out to him. And what a challenge it's got to be for you too! Whoever thinks parenthood is easy, has never been a parent!
She is definitely hormonal - in the last 6 months, her figure has totally changed, and her emotions ... wow! One reason that it's been hard is that the girl cousin across the street is really difficult. The boy cousins all get along great, but the girl ... well, we've pretty much had to just have some separation time. And that's just one issue for her, of several big ones. But we're helping her deal with them, and she and I pray for each other for help with our hasty tonguesYou're daughter is probably having the hardest time with the move because she's a girl, and girls are generally more sensitive and sentimental about things, not to mention dramatic. Plus at her age, she's going through puberty, and those hormones can sure cause emotions to go awry. Hang in there, sis, it will get easier in time. I'm sure you'll end up having as close a relationship with her as I now have with my daughter.
I'm the one that did most of his training - we're very similar and do well together. It's really hard, though - you don't want to say too much, but you can only think "does he see that truck coming?" for so long before you GOTTA say something!When my son had his drivers permit, my husband was the one who rode with him while he got his driving hours in, thankfully! It worked out well because hubby got son a temporary summer position where he works, so he got lots of experience driving every day to and from work! Well, within one month after getting his license, he got a ticket for speeding. The next month he was involved in an accident (his fault, but nobody was hurt). Since then he's done much better. Good luck to your son as well as whoever braves the passenger seat during the learning process! You did say you always wear helmets, right?!?
Mostly kicking and punching, as far as I can tell, but I can only tell so much while my kid is still internal. Tomorrow morning, we're getting a 4D ultrasound, though.
