Open Letter to Girls

Dear Girl aged 14-16,

You're not 'all that'. You wear too much eyeliner, too much hairspray and too much perfume is worse than none at all. I promise Snickers for lunch isn't a good idea and YES!! you too will get a big butt when your boobs come in... it's a package deal.

Consider less talking and more listening. Seriously, boys aren't thinking anything and YES! that outfit looks dumb.

All My Love,

Every Substitute Teacher in the Universe


  1. How true, how true. Thanks for making me laugh with that one!!

  2. Oh but didn't we all do that at that age? I remember just dying to wear makeup at mom wouldn't let me until I was 16. To this day I don't know how to apply it right. My children do a much better job at it than I ever will.

    And the bit about the boobs and butt...oh how painfully true that is!

  3. not only will the butt get big when the boobs come in, but sometime after age 21, it will all begin to RACE for the floor!!!! AHAHAHAH!!!

    and snickers for lunch will NEVER be a safe lunch....sad, but true.

  4. I never got the butt part but I hit the boob line twice in my growth spurts. As a full time Mom to one 14 yr old and a part time Mom to others you are so dead on! I would also add take less pictures of yourself at arms length and more pictures of the world around you. You'll miss the view always looking in the mirrow at yourself .

  5. oh LeeAnn, that picture this is a good one! I think that one applies to ALL young folks... not just the girlies.

    I'm stealing that quote now.
