Need some feedback on this one, you guys.

Last night, I randomly asked Precocious Daughter the following question:

"So, now that you're 18, can I not impose a curfew on you, or do 'under my roof, my rules' still apply?"

Good question, right?

Her response was even better:

"Mother, I don't go anywhere. When would you ever have to give me a curfew?"

Because she is my daughter. *proud*

I am #TeamNerdGirl 100%.

I subsequently pointed out, "Grammy and Gramps (aka my parents) never imposed a curfew until I started dating your father. And I was 19 years old at the time."

To which she responded (and by the way she was driving in heavy traffic on I-35 E at the time, because she's badass like that), "Well, since I'm probably going to be going to college a VERY LONG WAY AWAY, it's not like you'll be able to do anything like that."

And I was just...



This is a roundabout way of saying, if you know someone who is a senior in high school, you should definitely take them to see the move Lady Bird. Neither of you will regret it.

Also, what are your feelings regarding curfews for grown-ass adults who are still your child?

Ring in, please.

  1. Hey, haven't been around for a while, sorry. Life.
    I think it's fair that people sharing a household let each other know where the other is. So no one worries. Sensible people don't stay out late routinely. Especially when they are in school. So as long as everyone is sensible...


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
