On the home front

Dear Jennie Wade House

A few years ago my daughter met a young man and moved in with him. At first I thought this was great, but as I got to know this man I soon realized that he is not the one for her (she just doesn't see this yet). Of course being a smart mom, I try not to say to much because as we all know the more mom protest the more daughter will rebel and do what she wants. So time goes on and I smile and hope that said young man will fall in a big hole somewhere and disappear. So what does this have to do with the Jennie Wade house? Well, it is like this. On May 24th of this year we made a visit to your house. My husband, daughter my grandson and myself. I had told my daughter ahead of time about the legend. You know the one on your door. It says that if an unmarried girl sticks her finger in the bullet hole that she will become engaged with in a year. Well......I told her not to put her finger in that hole. I even threatened to cut her finger off if she put it in the hole....But do you think she would listen..OH NO...She sticks her finger in that damn hole..We leave, we come home. Three weeks have passed, and guess what..NOOOOOO she isn't engaged....

I'm thinking of suing for child support

Sincerely Me....

P.S. (Can you put some gum or something in that hole? we don't want her to get married, because that is the last thing she needs)

Oh Patty,

I don't know what to say. They say a baby can be a blessing... Hopefully it will be in this case. *hugs*

Oh Patty, I am so sorry... What is it with young adults these days??? They KNOW about birth control. My BFF Judy's daughter (unmarried) got pregnant by a guy what was just a one-night stand, and worthless.

Long story short... Judy and hubby are basically raising her twins. (Note in today's blog). The daughter is 'trying' to get her life together---but she's still pretty darn irresponsible.

Makes one wonder---what was your daughter thinking?????

Oh take it in stride. No mom really likes the boyfriend. My mom doesn't think Adam does enough, yet that is my desire. I want a man with smooth hands and not sweaty. It will all turn out okay and then there will be that baby. Only problem? The other GMA. Yikes!

Oh dear, I am so sorry. But I do love your sense of humour and that is something that will get you through.

And yep...I'd seriously think of suing them if they don't bung a wad of gum, or something, in that hole !!! :-) :-)

Oh dear ... I think engaged probably would have been better as she always could have changed her mind.

Maybe the "joys of pregnancy" will help her to see that this guy is not the one she wants around raising her children. Maybe???

Damned Jennie Wade legend!

I know very well how Mom saying anything at all just increases daughter's love for the "undesirable". My daughter has now been married to the guy for 12 years. He has turned out to be a very good husband and a very good father. Shows how little I know.

Good luck with your situation. Maybe he will grow on you.
