Save Already

So my 23 year old daughter who is pregnant and has a son moved here about 2 months ago and is staying with us until she gets enough money from her check and child support to move into her own place. Well, she keeps going out and spending, spending, spending! And its on things she doesn't need. It's really beginning to annoy me because it's money she could have saved to get into a place. I don't know how to get it across to her other than I have that she needs to be saving.
I dread thinking she may still be staying here after her baby is born. Our house is so cramped already and to throw a baby into the situation, I just can't even imagine. *sighs*

My mom is exactly this way... she'll get down and depressed and to make herself happy, she'll go out and buy a dress or hat, whatever she's craving. My three nieces all have big dogs, and so can't stay in town with their mom... so they're out here with mom-spender and I. The one niece (20) doesn't work at all... and the other two are becoming typical teens (even though they are almost 18 and 20)... I yelled at the younger two for not wanting to go to work and contribute. Their big sister stepped into something that wasn't her business. Now she's not talking to me... and the youngest niece isn't either...

I don't know what has happened with kids these days. A lack of spanking? Surely, a rough childhood having to deal with lesbians all their life, and a deadbeat dad that doesn't do anything for them...

we will lose the house, and mom and I will lose our sanity. Family isn't even worth trying to help out anymore. everyone is selfish...

So, I guess I kinda know what you're going through, and if you ever think that I can help to talk to, give me a buzz.

:) Perhaps this weekend. Do you Yahoo? :)
