...but as it's about difficult child and school, I'll put it here. difficult child just walked in the door, took one look at me and asked if Mrs. T (his teacher of record) told me. Great...what now. Seems that difficult child skipped all but last period at school today. He wouldn't tell me why, all he said that he had a reason that is embarrassing and he'll talk to husband about it. Oooook. So now, I'm torn between being mad and giggling because I have a sneaking suspicion what his reason is. Do you think I should ask if he used a condom? Ugh. I really shouldn't giggle. I'm fairly sure that if my suspicion is correct, this was difficult child's first time. At 19...I can live with that. However....he's 19. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the girl was at least 18 or has (this sounds horrible) parents who won't press statutory rape charges. As soon as he hit 18, husband and I made sure he understood what could happen should he have a relationship with someone underage. Anytime I hear about him hanging out with any girls, I remind him. The last time I made sure I told him that it could possibly get him convicted of child molestation and what that would entail. (registered sex offender, limits on where he can live and work, etc.) Keep your fingers crossed that he had a moment of common sense.
