You know you are persona non grata with your daughter when she defriends you on facebook. Heh. I love social networking etiquette. If the rules are to be followed, we should both now write up our different versions of the argument, and then demand that mutual friends choose a side. After all, Boyfriend tells me that he didn’t know we were in a relationship until he read it on Facebook. I hope that was tongue in cheek, as otherwise it makes him gorgeous but dense.
Sadly, I didn’t notice the defriending thing until today because I don’t usually go on Facebook. Never mind; the only reason I joined in the first place was to keep an eye on the girls’ activities. I already KNOW now what they get up to and I would prefer not to dwell on it too much. I’ll survive the worst social networking insult imaginable.
Do you think daughter meant it when she said that she would have nothing more to do with me? Not totally true. I can’t help noticing that certain items have been removed from the house and that food has been eaten/taken. She still has her key and obviously comes around when I am not in.
I probably should be upset by all of this. But she’s an adult now and totally able to make her own decisions and deal with the repercussions of her actions. All I can do is stand around and watch; loving her always but not willing to be treated with a lack of basic human respect. I’ve always tried to pay my daughters the courtesy of treating them politely, no matter what the provocation. It’s what adults should do. I was never very fond of two year olds.
