Mothering a teenager I can say, I’m officially a PUSHER...a pusher of Lyfe! At the end of our night last night, we were visiting with new friends Maxx touches my shoulder and asks “You cool if I go stand by the car?” Sure. A short while later we walk to the car and I see THIS...look at THIS!!!... he’s looking so teenager-y leaning on the car doing his own thing. Middle school Maxx in full bloom! Good golly learning I gotta knock at his door louder than ever to break into his world. What happened? ... to how he used to always wanna be by my side pushing whatever I was doing to the side...now I gotta be the one to sit my self next to him pushing whatever he is doing to the side. He’s an introvert and a homebody like no other. To do stuff and get out of the house ... Push to get him going. So much! So much pushing in this new chapter. Last night after so much pushing what to wear to go out, but letting him be him, pushing to get out of the house and in the car ...we headed down town for pizza (of course), and friends, and an incredible show @benjacksonmagic (if you have not seen him...go look it up right now... his next show, and get your cute butt there! You will laugh and gasp and cringe and be #mindblown ). Maxx my introvert held tight as we mingled with friends (seeing how hard it is to open his heart up to folks he barely knows...meanwhile his (ENFP 👩🏻🎤) momma loves it so much...) We visit and wait for the show to start. He’s holding on tight wishing he didn’t have to be there...the show starts elbows on his knees, chin resting in his hands-melancholic...he sat up straight watching, reacting, and SO into it!!! ...half way in, he is laughing and enjoying it as much we all were. Then he talked about it on the way home and trying to get him to get ready for bed more questions and thoughts about the show. Then to push him to not stay up all night and go to bed. 💕 #pusher #mom #teenagersareawesome #maxxman .
