I believe that there is hope for all men(and women). I really like to think that everyone can change and deserves the benefit of doubt. That said I have two teenagers and dear God all mighty,at times, they deserve very little. When my kids were younger, I heard a mother call her teenager an ASS. I put my nose in the air and thought what a terrible mother. LAUGH AT ME! Boy, how those things come back to haunt you. Funny how you always remember those things.
All that said, I have an Anna update. We have a joint checking account together. So I can put money in and she can take money out. That said she has been super good about not using the debit card. She even asks firsts even though it was money that she saved herself.
I check the account a lot just cuz. I noticed that she had a Redbox charge on there and fired off a text to see if she had used the card. I often worry that Anna will lose her debit card. I have reason to worry since she misplaced my credit card when she needed to get gas in high school. But that is all behind her as she often reminds me. Anyways, she text back saying that she did swipe it but had a free code so all was good. I was impressed. I told her that she would be washing out plastic baggies with the best of us very soon. She replied with why are you trying to start a fight. Well at least, it is a start.
