6 Word Story: 8/15

I tossed and turned all night last night. Receiving news that your 18-year-old daughter is pregnant will do that to a person. While my husband wanted to kill the boy I had to be the voice of reason, ‘She is an adult and she had sex too.’ She lives in another state first with her father (when she got into trouble here) and then with her boyfriend when her dad kicked her out at 17. There are a lot of moving parts to this story so instead I’m just going to say I tossed and turned.

Everything I wanted to do yesterday came to a hault so I will be finishing my loom today and trying to plan my indoor herb garden. There are so many things to plan I don’t even know where to begin. I also need to go and get the raw milk to make cheese for the Asatru event Saturday. With such a busy list of things to do and so much distracting my head from tasks I thought I’ll just start here with today’s prompt. Today’s prompt was difficult for me but I like where it took me.


Prompt: North

You're imprisoned by your own doubt.

  1. It’s her youth that’s ruined, not yours. Let them take charge like the adults they want to be. No hanging with friends etc, because it’s parenting time. Now she will understand everything you tried to do as a parent too. Love that baby, but don’t take it over-otherwise your life’s plans end too. My mother-in-law told me (and I was of good age 20’s) “I raised my kids,” I read between the lines. She rarely babysat, but did visit a lot.
