    She is SO grown up!

    OK, so she's been away from the leprechaun for about 2 months. There was a guy who was showing interest in her pretty soon after the breakup.

    She told him that she thought it was too fast too soon.

    That may not be anything to brag about, but this is MY kid. It took me till 35 to get that I did not have to be with someone to be happy. She got it at age 20. 3 cheers for Copper!

    She also realized, all on her own, that this new friend with whom she is staying may not be the best choice for a roommate. She is evidently very clingy and controlling. Copper said something to the effect of jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I told her again that she was welcome here anytime. She said, she would not do that to Tink again. See, when I left Matt (when Tink was 2) Copper went to live with my mom. She moved back in with me about 3 years ago (so Tink was going on 5) and Tink got VERY attached to her being there. Well she stayed for about 6 months and then split to be with the leprechaun. Tink was devastated. Copper on her own accord has decided that she would not do that again to Tink.

    Sniff. She is all grown up!

    WOW!!! Not just grown up but an adult that understands repercussions to others and cares about them. BBK, barring all of your diffiicultes while you were raising her, she has turned into a remarkable woman and, whether you like it or not, you do get part of the credit.

    I know that you are proud of the choices she is making. And even prouder that she understands that her choices have ramifications that reach beyond her...she is turning into quite a lady!!!
