Okay, so we have 2 daughter's that have had the "taste" of living outside our Home!
The recently 20 yr old....2 yrs of dorm life! The recently 22 yr old....one year of "campus housing" and one year of sharing an apartment with a friend! So this summer finds them both Home again. Not that they "really" want to be, as they so often express to me especially lately! Don't forget, our life has changed too, with you both Home again!
But, my question IS....why do they think they can all of a sudden be so snappy with me?! I ask a simple question and I get snapped at, every time! They are in MY Home again after all! Least they forget who they still need to be respectful to!
They seem to think they can just come and go...as. they. please. without having to answer to anybody! By that I mean....If, for example, I ask what time will you be Home or when will you come Home, I get snapped at with an, " I don't know!" And when I ask why their response is like that....I get told, "I just feel like you constantly want to know my schedule and I don't know, I go day by day, moment by moment!" My response to that being, "I guess I deserve that! Since I'm just trying to figure out IF there will be enough food for you when you do come Home!"
I mean, don't get me wrong I Love Our Girls....but, come on, when did you get the right to be disrespectful to us because you had to move back Home this summer?!
We are still providing them shelter, their own bedroom, food, clean clothing and all the little luxuries that they seem to not remember....a pool to swim in on a hot day, paid cell phones and paid car insurance! Seems to me they have it pretty good for not wanting to be here so much!
So I think that they need to be showing alittle more respect then they do! Because when they do finally move out again....I might just be alittle snappy when they call and need to talk or need advice or say they are coming Home again....
