!http://images.fabulously40.com/uploadedimage/2627/thumbx250/hpim0703.jpg! First of all I would like to express how thankful I am for this site!  I now can’t sleep and decided to come to the computer and let it rip!
When my husband and I went to bed this evening exhausted I laid awake watching the t.v.. While laying there I thought I heard the front door open and shut a couple of times. I figured that one of the kids was possibly bringing in some presents that he had gotten today.
I decided to wander out and check because I got to thinking that the dog had barked one of the times that I heard the door.
I went out and asked my step-son if he had sprayed some cologne or something because there was a huge assault on my nose and sinuses as I entered the hallway. He said “no“.
Hmmmm..so far a mystery!
He was looking for cold medicine..I don’t remember him complaining about anything minutely having to do with a cold.
I went into my room and awoke my husband, telling him that I was quite sure there was a girl in my step-son’s room.
My husband told me I was crazy. Why would there be a girl there. After all, he didn’t hear a car pull in the driveway. Pleeeeaaaze! The way that man snores, believe me, he hears nothing else!
Well, I went out and was thinking hard about a way to have him open his bedroom door. I knocked and when he came to the door I asked for some boxes that I had stored in his closet. He didn’t leave the door open, but shut it until it was a crack. Not the usual! Again I asked if he had gotten some perfume or something. His response...“I don’t smell anything.” Last I knew I wasn’t going crazy...not yet anyway.
OK! I’ve got the boxes...but all I have for evidence is the overwhelmingly strong smell of perfume....Ugh! Star thinking, start thinking.....
Oh, he came out of his room! Perfect to get a conversation or question formed!! All I could think of was “let me see what you got for your Dad.” Another chance to go to the doorway! Yes!
This time when he shut the door, basically in my face, I “took a baby step at letting my “New Yorker” out! I decided to just walk in....satisfaction! Especially when I noticed a young lady crouched down behind a chair.
MMmmmmmHHmmmmmmm! Who was right????
I told him to take her home and the next time they try to do something so sneaky that it’s a big mistake to wear so much perfume....sorry ladies, I couldn’t resist! It still smells like bug spray in here..seriously.
Then I went in and woke my husband again to let him know who was right. All he said was “why would he do that?”
I’m sorry, but I just wanted to slap him and say “maybe if you would get up and let your son know that you are a supporter of our house rules that he might take me seriously and not do this again.” You see, this is the second time this has happened since he has been in college.
I find it disrespectful of him.
And one more thing...she has a cold. That means that he will get her cold. Then I will get his cold, which makes me sick longer and then get another ms symptom. He also knows this, but thinks it’s a joke.
Other than this he’s a very respectful child and I know he loves me a lot.
WTH?

    • OMGoodness, what did the girl do? She has some nerve going into someones home without permission from the homeowner.
      My son is 16, do I have this to look forward to?
      I’m sure he’s a good kid, I’m sure most kids have tried this one on. LOL
      Maybe the next time she sneaks into a home, she’ll leave the cologne at home.

    • Honey that is really bad.

      Are you shaken more by the fact it’s the breech of trust by your son or the nerve of the girl sneaking into your house to do “who knows what“?

    • Wow, I liked the way you handled it.  Not sure I would have done the same.  Sorry to hear that your Husband didn’t help you out.  Maybe he will say something later because it has to be known that it’s totally unacceptable.

    • I think I would prolly have to give my hubby a tongue lashing for not getting up the instant you heard/smelled something. Mine too sleeps soundly so it would be me battling anyone breaking in and he would still be sleeping.
      Ok sorry....
      Then I would have a conversation with my hubby and child in a controlled tone (believe me hysterics won’t get you anywhere) and explain the house rules for having company over. Not knowing how old he is I would also add that if you don’t like the free room and board you are welcome to move out and live any way you would like.
      And if all else fails get hysterical!!!!!

    • Oh my goodness does this bring back memories.

      This happened when my son was 19. It was a Saturday night well really Sunday morning like 2 am and the music from the basement woke me up. My son was playing R. Kelly - Aint nothing wrong with a little bump and grind! Better known as baby making music.  

      I opened the basement door and it was pitch black. I asked my son who was down there and to turn down the music. He said just one of his friends was there. Now ladies, why would my son have one of his friends (male) in the dark playing R. Kelly. Well one of the ladies sucked her teeth because I made them turn the music down. Now I knew my son’s friend did not suck his teeth.

      I started screaming get those hoochie mamas out my house right now.  

      How did they get in? We have a hatchway to our basement. So if my son leaves the latch off, they go around to the back yard open the hatchway door that goes straight to the basement and me and my husband would never know.  

      My husband and I both gave him a tongue lashing. From that night on, when my son left, I made sure the lock was on the hatchway door.

      KIDS!

    • LOL...sorry to laugh but it is funny...and I am not trying to minimize the situation...but...although it is disrespecting to you as a parent and the homeowner...it IS kind of a funny situation...him trying to keep you out of his room...and you insisting on going in there...and when you think of it...it could have been worse...could have been a burglar or something more dangerous in your house...guess all you can do is talk to him and explain how you feel and hopefully he understands that he DID disrespect you and your husband and never try that stunt again...

    • Jomi, this story goes hand in hand with listening to your innner voice, another post, and you did listen.  Thank heavens.  The nerve of that girl, if she was bold enough to walk in with her bug spray, why did she end up hiding.  Children like to test us, and it’s good that they do, because then we really get to exercise our disciplinary skills.

      Glad it turned out the way it did.

    • !http://images.fabulously40.com/uploadedimage/2627/thumbx250/hpim0703.jpg! It’s funny (sort of) today.  I would have liked to grab her by the hair and throw both of them out in the snow to cool them off!  Oh well, he’s 18 and thinks not using the head at the top of his body that the good Lord gave him.  This was the second time and a different girl.  I know I taught my girls better than that!  As mcmiddlesworth wrote..what nerve she had to come into someones home and act that way!
      He did all of my house cleaning today for me..YES! I threw in the whole bathroom too. I told him that he has two strikes..if there is a next one, and there had better not be, we are turning his room into an office and he won’t have a room to come home to.
      It probably would have made a good video..me limping around thinking of a good excuse to go in there and kick some butt.
      Oh ladies...
      leadingladytracy..you gave me quite a giggle..although it isn’t really a funny situation.
      Vickiday..I am frustrated by both of them.
