- a big headache (but it will be over)
- the desire to avoid stress. I love my DD, but raising a teenager (and being one, if I recall correctly) is like walking into a haunted house at the fair: you never know what icky thing is going to jump out at you but you're sure something will any minute and you won't like it. To carry the analogy further, you know that it will end, and approximately when. Further, it's pricier than it should be.
