Kids went off with their Dad for Christmas on the 23rd, due back today. I have missed them and am really looking forward to seeing them. All their presents are under the tree and I am doing a turkey and ham for supper tonight.

DSS came home at lunch time, he has had 4 days with his DM. Wants to open his presents on his own with his DF in his room. Then within minutes of being here his mates turn up to play Xbox.

My DC are still not home. Ex said they were leaving Wales (with ex PIL) at lunch time. DS (18) just called to say that they are running late and have not left yet, ffs! and not to drink as he wants a lift to his gf when he gets home. I have not seen him for 6 days, he can see his gf tomorrow. Apparently not!

DD (15) then gets on the phone telling me not to be cross with her Df about being late, as she does not want him upset.

Feel like to only one that no one gives a shit about. DH is lovely, but then he gets cross with the kids as he can see that I am upset.

Just a rant, no solution to this apart from knowing that in a couple of years they will all be off doing their own thing and Dh and I can go and Christmas somewhere quiet and exotic.

They are typical teenagers there age doing their own thing. I'm sure they are the same with their mum. My brothers as teenagers were always out with friends rather than spending time with my parents

Sympathies flowers
We have 6 teens in total well 5 technically, but my DD (12.5) certainly acts like one

We had them all for a week, then just the 4 DSC for 4 days, during which time none of them got out of bed before midday and then constant slobbing in front of endless movies.
We've had a lovely child-free day today, but have my two back now who are supposed to be packing to go to visit family over new year. They've been back 1.5 hours now and so far DS has spent 1.5 hours in the bath, and DD has decided which fake nails she wants to wear for the new years eve party.....

Teenagers - they know how to press every button don't they. Both to wind you up and to make you utterly love them!

Sneezlemcweezle exactly. I was cross and upset, they turned it round.

They came home, gave me big hugs. Loved their presents. We had a lovely meal together, even DSS came to the table and spoke.

DS arranged for his Dad to pick him up after dinner to take him to his gf's, and he said he will be back today.

I have 3 teens ds 17, dss 16, dd 15.

From want I have noticed teens view themselves as the centre of the universe. They think of themselves first ie "don't drink I need a lift".

KeepCalm, you're dead right there! I've said it before, but I think the parents of today's teens, are rearing a useless, demanding and entitled generation.......ok, there's the New Year's grump over!!!
