It's boyfriend's night to have Aubrey. Nichole came home around suppertime. She was going to hang out this evening with mutal friends. The friends are a couple the kids went to school with living in an apartment not far from here. Last weekend Nichole went with this couple and came back later than she was supposed to. Ticked me because I had Aubrey. She was sleeping, but that wasn't the point. I had told her no later than 11:30 because I wanted to be able to go to bed. She didn't get here until midnight. One minute before cerfew. So I just got off the phone with her. Nichole wants to sleep over at these kids apartment. I said Uh, No. She asks again and adds in a why not I told her she knows why not as she had that answered when she wanted to sleep over with boyfriend while his parents were out of town. But this was different, and I wasn't watching Aubrey, and why when she's 18. So, as dramatically as she would I said again, "If you can find somewhere to sleep other than home then you have no reason to be living in my house as an adult." She then asked when her cerfew is. I said she also knows that answer as it hasn't changed since she was 16. Nichole said she'll see me then. Now I know parents who think this is extreme as she is almost 19. But I know Nichole. If I let it start she'll be staying at boyfriend's and God knows where any chance she got. While living under my roof I'm not going to put up with it, or have my grandchild have to put up with it. I have nothing against these kids she's hanging out with. They seem very nice. Although the boy gave Nichole yet another tat which is the most unattractive one I've ever seen right smack on her chest. (3 huge black stars) Nichole thinks it's great cuz it was free. *sigh* But they don't seem gfgish. Just young. In the morning I'll hear how mean and unfair I am and I'll be expected to explain the Why of it to her again.
