Things have been quiet around here for a while, which I think gave me a false sense of security! SD16 has recently gottern her license and a new, fully loaded 2020 vehicle. We did not pay for the vehicle or the insurance; this was a huge deal for me. We have no control over the vehicle or how it is used so I did not want any potential liability issues.
Within 4 weeks of having the car, SD had backed into something and shattered the back window and gotten a speeding toicket for 15 miles over the limit. Even DH was glad we are not tied to that mess. Due to all this, BM has grounded her from her car.
SD16 boyfriend picked her up for a date Saturday night and we told her to be home by 11:00. My DD called me around 9:30 to let me know that SD and boyfriend had been in a wreck and to see if they were ok. Ummmm, what wreck?
We call SD and she admits to wreck, says they are ok. We head across town to retrieve her, 30 miles from where we live. I am 1000% not engaged but I went out of curiosity to see what happened. The accident occurred at 6:30, the car was totalled and towed off. Neither kid called a parent and they continued on to a birthday party. Some other kid drove them.
She was pissed we came to get her, said she wasnt sure how she was going to get home and did not see the big deal. I asked when she was going to tell her parents and she admitted that she would not have fessed up. She also admitted that she did not call to let anyone know becasue she did not want to come home early.
This kid is going to be the death of me. DH made her call her mom and tell her what had happened and both houses are supposed to be punishing her. I keep waiting to see how much worse her teenage years are going to be.
