Little jet-setter

My 20 year old daughter called me tonight to tell me she was having a hell of a fun time. She called me while she was backstage after the Velvet Revolver show in Detroit. She is so grounded when she gets home.

    LOL! Going backstage? Now that rocks!

    I know! She’s been saving her money to buy a car. I’m sure that ticket put her back about six months. Kids and their priorities :/ Actually, I’m glad she had this experience. I did similar things when I was her age. It will be a good memory she can talk about when she gets our age.

    Grounded? At 20? Nah…Really?!
    I’m jealous about where she was though. I can only wish I did things or WILL do things so spontaneous.

  4. Greg says:

    I was joking about the grounding. You can’t ground a 20 year-old. I’m just envious.

    Happy Birthday, dear!

    I know that it will feel like tomorrow when I am going to turn around and my son will be 20 as well. I don’t know how parents deal with this. I am going to be terrible at accepting my son as “grown.”

  6. Greg says:

    Once they get out of thier teens you resume loving them the same way you did when they were toddlers. You just have to get through that one rough spot. Grown kids are an absolute joy. Just as little ones are. It’s something to look foreward to. Trust me. It will be okay, you’ll see.

  7. You ARE a daddy, G. Remember, that’s exactly what you would’ve done at her age.

    Oh–wait a second: NOW I know why you’re grounding her!!!

    Hope she had fun then…it’ll be the last good time she’ll have for a while.

    Wonder what House Arrest is like in the Peirce Penal System???

    Happy weekend,

    I hope everyone knows that I was just joking about grounding my 20 year old daughter. That’s pretty much impossibe. At 20 they can just move out (again). I was very happy that she was able to do that. The “grounding” comment was just a lame joke. I was just envious of her luck at getting front-row seats and backstage access at that show.

    Laurie, the Pierce Penal Unit is actually fortifying the perimeter. I have a 14 year-old. I will do my best to be a reasonable Dad.
