- the food this boy eats
- the laundry
- the coming and goings
_ the few nights he's home - really loud x-box, music
- coming home way past curfew
- worrying about him either driving in snow, ice, or being out, either drinking or at parties...
Neithless to say.. I haven't had a really good night of sleep!
I had really missed him, when he left in Aug. But, man., Guess I got used to have my home all for me and my daughter!
He doesn't even EVER stay at STBX's either....
I'm ready for him to go already!!
Please tell me, that I'm not the only one feeling this way?

When she came home from college, apparently she felt she was no longer subject to the "house rules". She was disrespectful and inconsiderate.
After another night of her not coming home and not letting me know what was going on and her whereabouts, I packed up her suitcases. When she came home she was greeted in the foyer by her suitcases and me. I told her as that she obviously had other places to stay she needed to leave now and go there.
Wow! Fastest turn around evah. Begged for forgiveness and told me she would do better and she did.

I'm a such a sucker, when it comes to my son! He was there for me in the hardest of times, so I excuse many behaviors that I shouldn't. But I will definately need to keep your idea in mind for the coming summer!!
I told him that he had a choice. We could either have a mom/son relationship where he showed consideration for me/my house/my rules, OR we could have a landlord/tenant relationship which included him paying room/board and for use of the car (but he was free to come and go as he pleased).
He was much more considerate after that.
In my effort to be *concise*, I often come off as blunt and harsh. Sorry, don't mean to be offensive.
Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
My darling daughter has also been home for 4 weeks and she's driving me insane. One more week to go....
DD(21), DS(18, PDD-NOS)
6 Furkids - 4 dogs, 2 cats
WXH (serial cheater, 12+ OW) - Legally married 18yrs
I edit often for clarity/typos.
I miss him when he goes back to school.
His, favorite sentence to me is: "you're sooo annoying" .. yeah luv you to DS.
Better find my mini bitch boots for him too
Please tell me how going from a family of 3 (or 4, if my stepdaughter is staying with us) to a family of 4 or 5 when DS comes home has literally doubled our grocery bill! Doubled! As in one extra person eats as much as 3 others!
And how have I gotten such glowing reports from dorm life about how he is the only one who cleans his suite, he is the only one who takes out the recycling, actual requests for cleaning products to be mailed in care packages, texts with pictures of a pile of clothes and "laundry day!!" sent to me with some regularity - and yet the boy who is currently inhabiting his room is sleeping amongst piles of dirty clothes, hasn't so much as taken out the trash once in the last month and gives me the "Moooooom!" when I ask him to remove illicit soda cans from wherever he hides them in his room?
I asked him if I could have the cleaner, dorm-version of DS just for the day. He gives me that look and tells me he just wants Mom to take care of him for a while... sniff sniff.
