She's really leaving me, guess I'm not the boss of her anymore

I knew this day would come, I just had no idea it would come this soon. Today Hailey came home after work with the lease she and Alex just signed. Do these people not understand that these are two babies? I'm sure they aren't old enough to enter into a contract. I can see I'm going to have to talk to someone about this.

Then I realize, there is no one to talk to about this. My baby girl is spreading her wings and leaving home. What the hell am I gonna do now? Who am I gonna boss around? I tried bossing Clementine but she just blinks that one eye at me and pees on the floor when I'm not looking. Also, now that we've spoiled her since she lost her eye she has turned into quite a demanding little bitch.

I usually give her a treat after her last potty break at night, well now she thinks she deserves a treat every time she pottys outside and if I don't give her one, she just pees on the floor next time. And dinner time? I give her wet food for dinner and now if I don't feed her by 6 o'clock she sits at my feet, gives my that one eyed glare and growls at me. Most of the time she just ignores me.

Come to think of it, that's a lot like raising a teenager. Maybe it won't be that different after all.


  1. I can't believe she is moving already. I can only hope for the best, I left home at sixteen and returned a few time before really being ready to be in my own, just have the door open and ready for if she does need to come back home. :)

  2. This is where the fun begins sweetie. They come to visit and walk out with grocery bags full of goodies. They call you to ask what to do when the sink backs up. They call you when there's a problem with the utility bills. Fear not. She'll be around quite a bit!! And I'm always only an email away! Hugs.

  3. Think of it as an adventure.....yeah and be sure to tell me that next August when I'm crying about mine going off. Hugs. I know it's hard.

  4. Oh god Miss! I think you better sublet one of the rooms so you dont go completely crazy!! I cant believe they are starting to leave home! Looks like more Wine parties!

  5. at least she isn't moving 2000 miles away like not to mention any names (Missi,Angie,Terrie) did...oh no I didn't cry or feel alone...oh yeah I forgot I had their Dad home...sometimes I wish he was the one who left and my girls


Say it, you know you wanna!
