HI , I am a stay at home mother of two daughters age 17 and 19. my oldest just finished her first year of college with a few social bumbs but her grades were good. my youngest just started dateing her first boyfriend. and she keeps wanting to spend the night at his parents house. she says she sleeps on the couch and I trust her. she has always been honest with me. but i still dont think it is aprobriate at her age. she begs me and I hate to tell her no but i am not comfortable with it . Am I being overprotective?

Welcome to CafeMom,
Tough call with your youngest DD,
I guess if you trust her she can for one time & then talk with her after.
Ask her where she did sleep?
Do you know the parents at all?
Good luck & let us know how it oges :)

Hello everyone! I am a 25 year old stay at home mother of one 6 year old daughter, with another daughter on the way. My daughter's name is Kiley, and this one will be Annabelle "Belle" Lee. I have lived in Louisiana my entire life, starting out in Shreveport and now living much further south. I am married to a wonderful man and father. I could not be more blessed to have him in my life. He is very supportive in everything I do, and is overjoyed to be having a child together. He has taken over the father role in my 6 year olds life, as she is a child from a previous marriage. He is the best father she could hope for, and honestly the only father she has in every sense of the word except biological. :D

When I have time to myself (which is NEVER) I enjoy doing anything crafty. I really love the feeling of completing a project, and feeling so much pride everytime I look at that completed project. When my hubby is home we like to pick a series on Netflix and watch an episode or two every night after our "minion" goes to bed. Other than that, I do a lot of research on living a natural lifestyle and improving my families health one cleaning/beauty product at a time. I am also very excited about beginning this baby's life with cloth diapering, baby wearing, and natural homemade hygiene products. 

Today, my husband and I actually found out that our little girl is indeed a little girl. We were 99% positive she would be a he, so were in for a shock when we found out we are having our SECOND little girl! Of course, we are thrilled. I am really looking forward to meeting some like minded women and hope to make a few friends along the way. I also look forward to learning as much as I can from other people, as it is very hard to find people with my interests in the area that I live in!!

I was going to tell you how inappropriate it is... and then I started thinking. There are two sides to every coin. My little sister (who just turned 18) started dating her boyfriend a little over a year ago. My parents have always been very protective of her (probably because of the things I did as a teenager) and in my opinion can be a bit overprotective. My sister makes straight A's, is well on her way to a medical degree, dual enrolled her senior year, and has never had a drink in her life. She makes me proud. So, I was completely surprised when I found out that my parents were letting her go out of town with her boyfriend's family, and he was staying at their house often in the spare bedroom, as they did not want him driving home too late. Moral of the story: If you feel like your daughter is trustworthy, she probably is. If she is a problem child, and has given you problems in the past, then you should probably stick by your guns. Because often, your gut instinct is right.

Hi :)

I am a working from home mom of two: Ron (3.8) and Liya (1.4)

I left my day job when Liya was born to stay at home with my children. I own a small hand made busines - making baby teething toys and nursing necklaces - testing everything on Liya :))

We are living in Israel, but I was born in Russia and immigrated when I was 17 old.

I am hoping to find friends here :)

1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls?

No kids yet, but me and my fiance are going to TTC ASAP.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?

I grew up in Denver, Colorado. When I was 16 my dad took a job in Cleveland, Tennessee and we have been here ever since!

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other?

His sister met me at a mutual friends house and found out that I had never had a date for Valentines day. She immediately went home and gave her brother my number and told him to take me out that night. We have been together ever since. (Valentines day 2010)

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself?

I'm a bookworm <3

5. What's on your mind today?

TTC!! I'm having my Mirena IUD removed later this afternoon and I am so excited I didn't sleep last night. I can't wait to TTC, and as excited as I am, my fiance may be even more excited. He's been feeling the baby fever since his niece was born :)
