OMG, do they EVER stop saying that??? difficult child has been 18 for all of 6 days. SIX DAYS! And that's all I've heard since. If I say ANYTHING to him about what he's doing or planning on doing, that's what I hear. If he tells me about something he's thinking about doing, I hear it before I even get a chance to take a breath. I don't know why I never heard about this when I turned 18 but apparently when you're 18 and even though you still live at home, you can do any stupid thing you want. He asked me tonight if he could do the Kool-aid thing on his hair. (snort.......like THAT'S going to happen again). I told him that the original deal was that he had to finish this semester with a C or better in ALL classes. I got a look like I was stupid and totally wacked out of my mind and then he said (all together now) "But I'm 18".
