Somedays I really feel that the worst parents somehow end up being the best. Maybe that's just nature's way of making sure that everyone turns out okay.
I never drank when I was younger and child number two turned 21 today and is going out drinking with child number one who is 23 now. I feel like they are doing it just because they can, because I never exposed them to a lot of drunk people or big alcohol filled parties. All this time I thought I was doing the right thing. Maybe if they had been exposed to it more, they wouldn't feel the need to be out getting drunk. Ok, go ahead and laugh, that's what most people do when they turn 21, isn't it?
LOL.. nope, I was not out drinking when I turned 21!! My mom wasn't a great parent so I had too much to be responsible for.
Anyways, it was a good night. She wanted to eat at iHop so we took the half hour drive there and I got some yummy pancakes! Mmm.. blueberry ones. My mom came along too and brought her some presents. It was a nice family night anyways and I'm not staying up all night waiting for her to get home either.
