I have to vent about this because I feel like a heel when I do it to DH. My SD is 16 and of course thinks she's an adult and can do whatever she wants. I get that. However, she actually DOES whatever she wants and will stay gone all weekend staying with friends! We tell her to come home and she doesn't. She doesn't respond when we try to find out where she is to go get her and when she comes home late Sunday night wants to tell us what a great weekend she had. I don't want to hear it!
Last night she came home at 8pm after being gone all weekend, asked about my weekend, wanted to show me things that her friend's mom bought her and then proceeded to tell me she "needed a weekend away for some reason" and walked off after apologizing for being gone all weekend.
This is the same child that wants to go into the MARINES! Really? I am new to this whole SM thing and am coming into her life later so I really don't feel I have the right to really tell her to do too much which is frustrating because her dad feels guilty for a lot of reasons (won't go into it because it's just too long).
Is it terrible that I'm just waiting for her to graduate high school and go into the marines? I do love her but good grief!!!
