.... it has given me a warm and fuzzy feeling!

love it! came downstairs yesterday to find my ds and his girlfriend having a wonderful time putting together the gingerbread house! They are 15. xx (they did a lovely job too)

They sound like my DSDs (14) smile

At recent gatherings they have drawn huge posters of Disney characters, and made up/recorded a song. Both posted to Facebook, obviously grin

We don't often get to see their friends since they don't live with us, but we hosted a little party for them and a couple of mates recently, and we all just ate buffet food and played the Sing It games they brought.

When they stay over the most frequent request from DSD2 is "can we have a game night?"

I love teenagers too. My three are awesome and so are all their chums. Last time DS had a load of his mates to stay (they're 16), they actually opted to stay in on the Saturday rather than go to the skate park (the whole reason they'd come to London) to hang out with DD3; complete with setting up her Barbie shite and playing whatever she wanted. My gob was smacked.

Oh that is lovely smile

My (almost) 7yo is currently entering what looks like precocious puberty and acting exactly as you would expect a 12/13 yo to act (strops and moaning etc) so it gives me hope that in a few years time she will be the lovely girl again and a pleasure to be around smile <warm and fuzzy>

I was going to guess Playdough!

Teens are fab. On NYD they cleaned my house after our party so when I eventually got up it was like the cleaning fairy had been and gone grin

I have 10 15-16 year olds round later, all bringing their guitars.
They will sing and post videos.
smile and eat me out of house and home.

wow, my preteen has only just surfaced out of bed and is currently yelling at her brothers. There is hope yet!

I love watching my ds 17 and my mum playing rummy together.

Lifeisontheup Fri 04-Jan-13 08:14:47

My teen son goes round to his mates houses to play board games, they're very competitive. He took some back to uni too.

Playing with a younger siblings Barbie collection

bruffin Fri 04-Jan-13 08:09:47

I came home to find DS 17 and his girlfriend playing disney monopoly last night. They are very competative grin
My dd 15 is off for a sleepover tomorrow night which involves a murder/mystery game.
Teens are lovely

Oh, and Miyusaki films are also a favourite.

TheNebulousBoojum Fri 04-Jan-13 08:08:18

I was going to guess Twister, baking or watching Disney films.
Teens can be fantastic, my children and their friends are a consistent pleasure to have in the house.

Ummofumbridge Fri 04-Jan-13 07:56:37

Monopoly was my guess too. My dd (14) and her friend regularly have mammoth monopoly sessions. Makes me smile

Cooroo Fri 04-Jan-13 07:54:13

That's lovey! I agree lots of teens are can be great. I took 10 to York for a day and never had such fun.

StateofConfusion Thu 03-Jan-13 23:59:39

How lovely, this gives me hope that my 'teenage' 5 and 4yo may be lovely at a later age!

StressedoutMotherofTeens Thu 03-Jan-13 21:43:24

Brilliant! smile

TheBOF Thu 03-Jan-13 21:32:40

I love teenagers grin. I was going to guess Monopoly too.

CaHoHoHootz Thu 03-Jan-13 21:30:48

I had a group of 18 year old boys in the house who came over with the express purpose of playing a board game. From what I could hear which was quite a lot as they were loud they were having a great time. They were playing Risk.

My three teen/young adult DC's play cards together quite often.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 21:25:09

I agree startail - dd was a teenager when she was 11/12 (very tiresome) - since she has been a proper teenager she has been brilliant.

I blame High School Musical.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 21:24:19

Teens are great fun. One of dd's friends came round the other day and they both started fiddling with a telescope and talking about star charts.

FlibberdeGibbet Thu 03-Jan-13 21:24:09

I'll leave a pile of freshly ironed tea towels and some embroidery silks out just in case.... liking the pom pom idea as well!

Alas no washing up!

Startail Thu 03-Jan-13 21:23:54

Behaving, in the nicest possible way, like a bunch of 8 year olds?

(That's what DD and her two BFs are like, totally different to very teenage 11 yo DD2 and her friends).

FlibberdeGibbet Thu 03-Jan-13 21:22:44

Close Nutella - they contemplated playing monopoly, but settled on Articulate - and have now started playing PROPER OLD FASHIONED games - charades; 20 questions.

They may move onto cakes Confusion, they're looking at a baking book now!

Tis a delight to listen to - take note Daily Fail, teens can be a delight!
