Who is in Charge?

8:45 pm - The boys arrive home from mutual with Tyler in tow and head down to the basement for a few games of pool and FIFA.

Garrett - "Mom, since we don't have seminary tomorrow and don't have to be at school until 9:15, can Tyler spend the night?"
Me - "No." I don't know why I said no because really I didn't care. I was just wishing Garrett would be reasonable and think an adult! A reasonable person would use the extra three hours between 5:30 and 8:30 to sleep. But everyone knows that 17 year olds aren't reasonable.

10:30 pm - I'm wrapping up the night and getting in bed because even though there is no seminary, I still have to get up and go to inservice. Of all the injustice!
Garrett - "Hey Mom, when you get up in the morning to go to inservice, pretend you don't see Tyler's car in front of our house."

Hmmm.........guess whose car I saw in front of our house at 5:15, and 7:15 and 8:15. I tell you, I run this house with an iron fist!!!!!
