Eyyee Eye eyeee

I am trying to be a nicer, gentler Waffles. I am not exactly sure what this means yet. Like is it better to fight with someone about something you disagree on or just let it go... My Mom came over this morning and I actually started a conversation with her. Normally I just grunt or possibly try and piss her off. It was nothing special but I tried.

One funny thing she said this morning really shows a little bit of how clueless she is. My son was asleep in his room and my daughter needed to be at a party around 8:30AM. So my mom leaves and takes her. I stayed later around the house because I knew she would leave him. I mean can you imagine being a 13yr old kid, slightly afraid of the house and ghosts.. and to wake up and find NOBODY home. Perhaps I am being a little over protective but I do not think so.

She comes back and I mentioned I could not leave until she got back. She is all like "Why not, he is 13.. He can be alone. It is not a problem". I think this is sort of ridiculous. I mean she left us alone all hours of the day when we were young but I would not do that to my son.

What do you think? Too protective? She is a moron?

I am going back to Foxwoods next weekend. I am going to try and score another grand and use it to go to Vegas Baby!! Time is running out so this weekend will probably decide if I go. Peace.

13 is more than old enough to be in the house alone. Good luck at Foxwoods...

I'd say, if the kid was aware he'd wake up alone, then fine... but to leave anybody at any age to wake up unexpectedly alone kinda sucks!!

13 is old enough to be home alone for a bit. Leave a note saying grandma's stepped out for a little bit. Hell, he knows how to call you if he's worried.

Hell, he probably wants to be trusted to be home by himself and show he's growing up.

13 is fine to be home alone. Might want to tap him on the shoulder first to let him know you're heading out, but that age is fine IMHO.

13 is OK to leave alone but wouldn't spring it on him like that. Waking up in an empty house at that age with no idea what is going on can be a shock. When a potential situation like that arises should sit him down the night before and put im in the picture
