Well... difficult child is living with girlfriend's sister. From what I can gather him and girlfriend have been babysitting girlfriend's sister's kids for her to work :wildone:Boy, what a great career move! He has to see PO this friday to let her know how WELL he is doing before his court date this mth. I wonder what she'll think of the babysitting job easy child's birthday was Jan.5, she got a very nice car. We invited difficult child to her birthday dinner and he showed up driving girlfriend's car but had another long lost difficult child with him. This difficult child is supposed to get him a job tomorrow as an electrician, he will be paid for his training. He is also going from his town to another town to p\u my difficult child, then drive back through his town to another town to work, wonder how long that will work? We anticipated the worse when difficult child saw easy child's car. I reminded him that she worked hard for it. I didn't want to drill him about all his mistakes, but I do think he understood what I was saying. He told his difficult child friend that I didn't want him at home (play on mom's emotions)I quickly told him we did want him at home, he just had to live by our rules. So now I guess he is satisfied living how he is living. No rules, no responsibilty, but also no money and no transportation other than girlfriend's car. I know the judge is going to put him in jail. She gave him a month to prove he would get a job and do the right thing. He has gone backwards. I am sorry for his choices, but I will be okay if he is sent to jail. I asked him why he thought the judge gave him a mth before sentencing him and he said"To see if I would get a job" those were his words so I know he understands what is a stake. Sorry to ramble on, glad you guys are here to vent to. It helps to get it out.
