It's official... she is leaving

Chris' daughter, Britt, told her dad she is moving out on her 18th birthday in two weeks. Chris knew this was a possibility and was all ready for the announcement. I on the other hand was hoping she would stick with her original plan and go to school. She has yet to take her GED test but it is scheduled this Wednesday and Thursday. We will not know the results for another 6-8 weeks. So if she happens to fail it I don't know what she is going to do.

She is a very angry girl and she thinks she can do it own her own. The exception is that she will not be doing anything on her own. She has decided to move in with her boyfriend of 2 1/2 months. He still lives with his parents and they agreed to have her but she has to get a job.
She is going back to the city her mother lives in and that's 2 1/2 hours away. She doesn't have her drivers licence so I can really see this whole moving in with her boyfriend set up not lasting to long. He works and goes to pilot school so I highly doubt he will have time to cart her around looking for a job or giving her driving instructions.

Chris is disappointed and angry that she is doing this and there is nothing he can do to stop her once she turns 18. I am angry because I feel like we were just a pit stop until she turned 18 and all the plans that she wanted to do here was all bullshit. I really do not see her attending any college where she will be living because she can't drive herself anywhere. She is not one for taking buses because she was supposed to do that here for work and she had her grandma take her all the time. She has learned her manipulative behavior from her mother and the funny thing is she thinks she is nothing like her mother. So... I do not know if she will stay away permanently or if she will be coming back in 6 months or so. What I do know is if she does come back Chris will be laying down his rules and ruling with an iron fist. She will have to admit to him that she was wrong and only then will she be allowed back. We shall see.

It certainly sounds as if some hard lessons are in store for her.

Mr. Fab - The sad thing about everything is that she is so head strong and angry that she will always blame others for her mistakes.

Sounds like she and my son are going through the same stuff. It's hard on the parents!

Lattegirl- It's dissappointing to boot because she has not been honest with us from the start. She has a huge attitude and no matter what you tell her she is always right. It's sad and frustrating all at the same time.
