I guess Im just not meant to understand. My kids are pretty much grown but somehow I still keep getting sucked into these power struggles with them. My oldest, Navy Boy, is the worst. I don't have to DO anything and I get BLASTED for things that someone else said I did....I spend my entire time of talking to him defending myself. My youngest, College Boy, is just a free spirit and no matter what I ask him to do, he can't seem to remember it long enough to actually DO IT.
There really are days when I just want to close my door and tell them both - Mom is officially closed for business until the two of you can learn to be nice!
