Well, I'm talking to my son about his girlfriend, who does all she can (so it seems) to make him jealous and drive him nuts. According to him, she complains they don't spend enough time together etc. He's a police officer and works a lot of hours. Then in walks my daughter, she starts complaining about her boyfriend. My daughter is dating a lazy bum. My daughter works a full time job, goes to college full time, getting straight A's. Her boy friend doesn't work, only takes one college course, and of course its the same class with my daughter (go figure). Whenever they go anywhere, she has to drive because he has no gas money, they go to the movies, she pays (you get the picture).  

 

 

 

As we were talking I said, guys, it's not supposed to be this tough. Since you are so young and this is really the easiest time of your life, its only going to get tougher. If they are driving you nuts now, just wait until important issues come up. Marriage, Kids, house payments etc,, you know the grown up stuff, just wait !

 

 

 

Of course there was a lot more said by all of us.(but since I'm a terrible typer I'm just giving the highlights) My daughter was starting to get upset. (here's the funny part)  LOL,,, she said,, "well Dad,, lets face it,, between you and Mom we really haven't had relationship role models to follow". We all started laughing and said, well dam,, aint that the truth.  LOL Now lets go to dinner.

 

 

 

I thought it was great, straight forward and honest.

Quoting RealtorLulu:

Hi Ray. I learned a couple of things from your story. Your children are comfortable enough to share their feelings with you and you have done a great job raising them.

Congratulations!

 

While driving to my old church one Saturday morning, with my youngest boy who was 10 at the time, I found myself stuck in a right turn only lane and needed move over to the left. There was a woman driving on the left lane a couple of car lengths behind me and when I signaled to move over, she sped up to keep me from getting in front of her. 

She then passed by me and gracefully gave me the finger to which my son shouted; "Save it for a lonely night." I'm still shocked!

Lucy



Lulu,

 

People do that a lot, and I could never understand it, but the finger? That was just a mile too far! She must be a really sad person.

 

As for your son - OMG! I can't believe how witty that was and to think that he was only 10? Wow, you raised a champ for sure!

 

Liv.

Quoting HappyKaz:

Driving, my son 4, from the back of the car, took my breath away.

I asked him if he knew how his father and I met?  I described how on seeing his father's face I just fell in love with the sweetest dorkiest boy I had waited my whole life to see. I know, heavy, for a four year old.  I told him how I saw his face and thought "he looked like he would be a really nice friend."  To which he just rolled out "and he turned out not to be."  I gasping, laughing, silently and repeatedly mouthed WTF,WTF,WTF.  Be very well. K.



@Happy,,,out of the mouth of Babys !  LOL

Okiedokie, Ray.  If you say all is cool, I'm with you 100%.  Just hope all continues to be 100% cool.

 

Love to see you on here, buddy.  You and I are among a very few left of the "old" gang.

Quoting Curious2078:

Sounds like your son needs a serious "reality check."  And it sounds like your daughter is very, very clever at manipulating the conversation around to blame YOU for her brother's  bad choices.

 

All BS!!!!

 

However, the fact that you guys all went out to dinner after this conversation says it wasn't so bad after all.

 

Ray, I wish you the best with this dilemma.  It sounds like one of those issues that could keep you up nights worrying about it.  I surely hope it doesn't.
