It was long coming and now it has passed … a daughter becoming 18. What liberties will she have now that she is 18 and still at home? I think for every parent this is a question of “will the new found adult think life is different in the home he or she grew up in” or “ I don’t have to follow those old stupid rules now that I am an adult”, which inevitably comes to pass for the blossomed youth. With each year that passes from birth to adult, children in general, tend to push the limits of the invisible bubble to see when it breaks and the new found adult will be no different in this respect. Rules such as curfews and bedtime, dinnertime, chores, and so on appear to have vanished in the blink of a birthday candle; however, things really haven’t changed – they just got older. As for my daughter, she really hasn’t had such things as chores or a bedtime and has been pushing the limits of a curfew the last few years. Hmmm… just running thoughts thru my head and on to digital paper is all this is about. No quips, insights, or any real comments to give on such a historic day. I am just glad she made it to 18 with all her parts in place and a mind that seems to impress me the more she uses it. I love her and hope the best to what she does with her future. I will be there for what troubles her (if she speaks to me about any) or if she needs to be uplifted (again, if she allows it) and in the end, be there for her.
18 and home
