There’s a saying that no news is good news. Well, in my case that’s not necessarily so. I started several times today to call just to see if they had come in but I refrained from doing so.
On another note. I am so furious right now I can’t see straight. I have never had to deal with such things until my teenage daughter turned 16 and started dating. These boys these days are so horrible. A few weeks ago my daughter got a dear john text. That within it self made me furious. What a coward. About a week later to my disappointment they got back together. Guess what! He did it again. I wished I could put my hands around his neck and teach him the necessity of breathing. He better be glad he’s away a college right now and not down the road where his parents live. No one hurts my daughter and gets away with it. This is part of fatherhood that I’m not prepared for. Ho does one prepare for such things?
First off, I hope you get good news soon.
Second, as the mother of three girls, I feel your angst about the dating situation. There were a few boys I wanted to strangle. But we had a standing joke at our house that any boy who wanted to get near one of our daughters first had to get past the 90-lb German Shepherd, then past the 40-lb mixed border collie, and finally past Dad with a loaded gun. The good guys (the one’s who are still with my girls) managed somehow to make friends with both the dogs and the Dad. Good luck with your girls!
Thanks so much for your comment. I had thought I had made my intentions clear when I met the boy. You hurt my daughter I hurt you. I guess he thought I meant on the physical level. I know I’m not alone in this but I hate to have my girls hurting. This too shall pass. Thanks again.
Hate to tell you, but you’ll never get over wanting to hurt someone who hurts your kids. You may learn to deal with the anger, but it will always be there. Just part of being a parent.
