Am I the only mUm who wants to ring her 'tween' daughter's neck, because she is as annoying as an ingrown toenail?

What is it with this almost 11 year age phase that, one minute she displays the common sense of a pot plant, walking across the road without looking, and the next she's hanging out the washing unprompted? How did she go from cute little Alena doing the robot dance to a sulky pain in the ass?

Something is going on in that 'tween' brain of hers that clearly we can't relate to!

Is it the fact that she's cognitively torn between remaining a child, Daddy's little girl, and, wanting to fit in as an adult, or, is it the Hannah Montana syndrome, where little girls are supposed to already be all grown up by now, hailing those smart assed comments, way too mature for understanding?

Hannah Montana is the precocious, nails on chalkboard annoying, child version of Lucille Ball, but that's just my opinion!

Whatever this thing is, it's driving us crazy.

By all other aspects, she's a normal 'tween', with clumsy footing, a ravenous wild animal appetite, Edward and Jacob posters on her wall, and, a Twilight T-shirt that unless I said otherwise, would have been worn every day this month.

So, how long will this last? Surely mUm and dAd, had to put up with me like this at one point, right?

I would love some advice from mUm's and dAd's, because it's a boiling pot of frustration in the Webster household and I'm sure not even Alena understands who she is right now?

Crikey!
