I called Son # 2 today. My anger has dissipated.
Being the loving and giving person that I am, I woke him up from a dead sleep.
I started the conversation with, "Morning Hon. Did I wake you up?"
Sleepy Boy said, "Yeah, what time is it?"
I replied, "9:00am."
Still Sleepy Boy replied "What's up?"
The loving and caring Mom who is trying to let go and still has some apron strings attached said, "I got to thinking. I am going to give you a 'one time good deal.' You did a stupid thing and you need to learn a lesson. That said, I will pay half of the bill. I am not going to make you pay all of the cell phone charges. You'll have to pay half, but I don't want to drain all your resources, especially with me leaving. Oh, by the way, next time you think about doing something that may or may not be a possible stupid, call me and ask."
"Thanks Mom, I really appreciate the help. I love you."
"I love you too, Hon. Go back to sleep."
