"But I don't wanna go" is coming from my youngest daughter today. She doesn't want to go to New York City with us next weekend. Seems it is homecoming at the high school. There are only two dances a year and that weekend is one of them. She loves her dances. Not sure why, I always thought they were HS hell. My girl friends and I would go and dance together but basically it wasn't much fun.
I am seriously considering letting her stay home with the husband who is going to keep painting the house if the weather is good. The last thing I want is a whining teenager hanging off me and moping around. She is still thinking about it, and I think she feels a bit guilty for not wanting to come but she is old enough to decide and some alone time with her father could be a good thing as they can often be like oil and water.
I will miss her if she doesn't come, like her sister she has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun. A souvenier will be in order if she does stay home. I really don't want to force her to come along. If things turn to misery with her father the texts will be endless and frustrating. The alone time I had with the youngest when we went to Indiana was great, perhaps it is K's turn.
What would you do?
