No. I don't.

But as long as they are in my home ... respect is paramount - on both sides.

Saving for your right to make your own rules, drive yourself ... etc. Is not always as simple as suggesting such.

No.

Is a poweful motivator.

I agree with the mutual respect.


Pretty sure I raised them to be independent....they sure seem to be. They're all adults now though so it's hard to know how to still "parent" them.
Now it's more "listen and guide" I think. (That's my plan for now, we'll see how it goes.)

Solid plan Jace.
We know how we would re - live our life.

They are living theirs ... just as we did and our ancestors did it ... right back in time

In the end we just need to be there for them

Regardless .

Bloody kids !

Oh for sure, you're spot on!
I remember being 28 and I thought I knew it all.
If I could go back I would do everything different, lol.
My parents used to say, "You can't put an old head on young shoulders!"

It's hard to watch though when you've "been there done that" and try to prevent them from making the same mistakes.
(but we learn from our mistakes)
Such a conundrum, eh?

Clearly!

I hope they understand that it is not their place to lash out at you though. That is bad form, and they ought to wind it in, lest the mighty hand of the old country strike at their bottoms with great vengeance!

Hi everyone! Hope your all going to have a good weekend!

@Jacy- While I have boys, I think it is still hard, even when they are older. You don't want to see them hurt/fail, but yet they won't learn if they don't.
My oldest has strangely become the one with "issues" now, but there really isn't anything I can do any more. I've reached out, to let him know I am here, but he gives me platitudes, and I don't hear from him for months. So hard.

So, I hope things are much better, for you and you daughter!

And, on a happy note, I have the twins Saturday! We've been getting them every other Saturday, for the night. They grow up so fast!!!!! But they are 3 now, and so much fun!!

You have the guardian angel faeries with you today Jess. Don't worry, they made themselves invisible to all but you and Paul. You know, so people don't freak out seeing tiny beings flying around. Keep us posted Sweetie!

Sorry I missed most of you earlier.

Jacy, you are an amazing woman, and I know you are a great Mom and love your kids! You seem to have this under control and I'm sure all will work out well.

Swanne, I went and wished the Queen a Happy Birthday in your thread. She has lived a long and I'm sure very interesting life and I doubt she will be around much longer. I'm sorry your thread didn't work out the way you planned.

Good to see everyone who stopped in so far today!!!!!!

Cute little baby! Hiya Blue! I've been up for a couple of hours, slept like crap last night/early morning. So...I'm still trying to wake up. It's a little after 2 in the afternoon. I suppose I should go get dressed now.

Starting to get ancy (is that a word) I hate waiting. Plus it's not my hospital so I don't have any view behind the wall. Did I mention I hate waiting?
