My son has finally moved out on his own. (Can I get an AMEN!) He also has a conundrum so I thought I'd ask my readers for their opinion.
Bubba is not perfect but he's not totally hopeless either. He has a lot to learn about living on his own, managing money and managing his partying. One of the HUGE mistakes I made in child rearing is that I wasn't one of those Suzy Homemaker mothers that let the kids help in the kitchen or make attempts at cleaning, etc. I was a working mother and I just didn't have the time or patience. Anyway, my son's dilemma has nothing to do with that other than his room might terrify potential bed-mates if he keeps it the way he did at home. I've told him this and he knows HOW to keep things neat and tidy it's just WILL he.
His problem is that he is attracted to a friends sister. She is attracted to him. They've hooked up and have slept together. He is worried that his friend is going to be angry. All of my son's male friends have told him that dating and sleeping with his friend's sister is, and I quote, “Fucked up!” I don't understand why. I know I'm his mother but I've seen him with his girlfriends, he's very caring and loving. He never cheated on a girlfriend, he takes them out to dinner and he pays, he buys gifts and is willing to go to the mall with them. I just don't get why it would be a problem. When I was young, dating friends brothers or sisters was no big deal.
What do y'all think?
Update ~ CrossFit is going well. Even my toes hurt. I do have to convince myself everyday to actually go there because I haven't hit that “work out high” everyone talks about. I'm extremely awkward but have been assured that I'll improve with time. Pray for me.
