My daughter Megan is 21 and has decided to quit her job at my former company to join me in TN.  She will be going to school for esthetics and she will be good at it.I am on one hand very excited to have her here. We can shop, watch chick flicks together and just do mother daughter stuff. On the other hand we haven’t lived together in 3 years since she went off to college then just decided to live with friends when college didn’t work out. A few of my concerns are that it will be slower and boring down here for her. She is very social and her 1st words as a baby were go go go. No lie! The fact that we haven’t lived together in 3 years and have different living styles. I had to clean her bathroom when I went to visit last.
We both are also Leo’s (as is my youngest daughter) and we are very strong minded and can be bossy (God help my husband and stepson, how they managed when all 3 of us were together).
My daughters are very much like me however I have earned the right and also know when to be polished. I am concerned that our heads will butt. Which would cause my husband to say something to Megan. Which would cause me to say something to him. Oh the vicious circle.....
But I still can’t wait to have my daughter here......

    • I agree with teeky3 - it’s difficult I know I live with my 21year old but we have learnt to have mutual respect and ground rules.
      Good luck and have fun.......

    • Good luck vikki.
      I can’t wait to see my daughter next week. Taylor just turned 23 in November and we are certainly “girls” when we are together but I do remember what it is like to live with her...whew!
      And I am sure she remembers what it’s like to live with me as well...tongue out

    • I wish you much luck.  I KNOW that my mother and I could NEVER live in the same house.  She stayed with me for 4 days over the summer and I was a wreck.  I’m a clean person and I still spent 5 days cleaning before she got here.

      Too much on my nerves.

    • I wish you luck. My daughter is home from school and she is 19. She is a Leo and I am a Sagittarius, two fire signs. However I let her know at an early age that my fire is bigger than her fire - LOL

      I give my daughter her space and respect her time but I also let her know that when she is under my roof, she needs to follow the rules.  

      So far it has been ok, but we have a long way until she goes back on January 18, 2009. God be with us.

    • Thx for all the kind words and offers of prayer. I will need them I am sure.

      We have laid down the law and she has agreed to our rules. We’ll see tho. I remember moving home after my 1st marriage and there was a donut throwing incident with my mom....my sisters still won’t let me forget that our mom threw a donut at me....and I was 28!!!!!!

    • Wow! I will be saying a prayer for you, Vikki. I don’t have a daughter, but I am one and I know how my mom and I can be after an extended visit.
      I go to Florida to visit her once a month and I also fit in time with my brother and grandmother. If my brother and I go out, my mom gets a bit snippy with me if I get back to her house late! And I’m 44! But hey, we are moms for life, I guess that’s par for the course.

    • Hi Vikkie
      I have 2 girls 26 and 22 due home Sunday from Boston where
      they are both in Med School. I’m lucky that the and keep  distract each other and keep each intertained.

      I will get them busy making cookies and ice cream for the
      holiday meal. I will get their favorite chick flick (Pride & Predjudice the 6 hour version) ready to go. I know that I know that they have made plans with local friends as well.

      I will keep it light because I am use to having my own space too!

      Good Luck!
