Felicia came home for a friends wedding this weekend. It was great having her home and getting to actually see she is doing well.
Then somewhere between 11 and 12 pm Felicia and her herd came home. I had forgotten how loud drunk people are, especially 21 to 24 year old drunk people (Felicia was DD and started drinking again when she got home). They headed off to the backyard when they heard Mikayla was back there with her boyfriend. They wanted to do a "hand check".
Ah poor Mikayla and Devin don't realize that they had gained more older sisters over the years. Devin received SEVERAL lectures from Casey. She chased him down several times to "discuss" his behavior. She was quit startled to see how tall he had gotten since she last seen him (I believe he is at 6' 1" now). And from what I gather from Mikayla the girls had gone after her boyfriend also (they don't approve of baggy pants, or drooping pants or how ever it is these boys are wearing them) and were commenting on Mikayla's figure and how she needed to cover up more. Those girls are definitely more prudish with siblings than I am with my daughters. Obviously Mikayla and Nathaniel left the back yard and chose to watch a movie in the living room. Probably a good choice.
I had to keep reminding them that we had neighbors. Again WOW young people are loud. Oh, and did I mention that Felicia's friends seem to be totally comfortable around Mike and I? So comfortable in fact that they don't hold back with their conversations when we are around. There are just some things Parents do not need to hear, even IF we know they are doing these things we don't need verbal conformation.
Finally sometime after 2am the ones that lived close (and were sober enough to drive) left and the rest started making their way to bed. And here it is 8am and I am up already. Just less than 6 hours sleep.
Humm should I start cleaning up from last night? Making A LOT of noise, and wake them up? Guess I would not be cool mom any more if I did that hu? Guess I will play another round of Domino's on the computer and give them till 10 to get up. But after that it is all fair game.
