Poem Friday on Thursday – 21 Today – From Child to Adult For Me Was Way Too Fast a Leap

 

 

 

On Halloween, 21 years ago this soul was born this day

21 years  this soul has given me pleasure in the most delightful way

 

Not going to embarrass him by gushing too much

 But  He has a great nature, kind, funny  and a soft touch

 

A little bit Aussie and a little bit Dutch

Oh a little bit Pom and Kiwi as such

 

I know his future is bright as he is quite focused and driven I believe

A Great and happy life ahead I am sure he will achieve

 

Happy Birthday Jayden as we used to say “You have the key of the Door”

Which you could say,  you had a long time before

May you have another fantastic 21 years and many many more

 

And May your Angels be with you where ever you are

Working, Surfing, driving, swimming, partying and even a bar

 

I love you and proud of you  Jayden a heap 

May all your wishes come true and a healthy life you keep

21 today from child to Adult  for me was way too fast a leap

I Am Not Sure An Adult Could Do This

This baby has no idea what dodgy territory he or she is encroaching. I know I would think twice before removing that dogs feed bowl.

It’s The Simple Things!

This guy is so right, as adults we forget to get excited about the simple things in life.

Being an adult kind of sucks...

Living Under The Same Roof

Are the kids showing no sign of leaving home?

Maybe they flew the nest only to find that the cost of rent, food, study fees and maybe a broken romance gave them the excuse to return to the fold.

I have been there. I love my children very much but their return to home was not as enjoyable as it seemed to them. My privacy went out the door and peace and quiet. I did though put down some rules which I stuck to. It made my life a lot less confrontational and they knew that the rules were written in stone never to be broken.

The rules were:-

  • Rent/Board « They had to pay rent of a set amount each week. There was no cash handouts to accommodate their lifestyle. No money « no play.
  • Money tip « Use their rent/board to put towards your mortgage or superannuation.
  • Food and Bills « The extra needed to pay electricity, food and water can add up and hit the hip pocket, when your costs should be reduced. You need to calculate what the extra cost is going to be and your lodger child should contribute to the kitty as he would if he lived with a flatmate.
  • Money tip« Insist on a set amount they pay each week towards all the costs of running the house.
  • Using the car « It is a money pit to be running your children everywhere or allowing them to use your car without putting in fuel or pay any of the running costs. Don’t even start this habit, be very consistent about them paying for fuel and costs.
  • Tempting but don’t give in.
  • Money Tip « Set a limit on the kilometres they can drive each week. Once that has been reached they can use public transport or use a friend. Insist they pay for the fuel they use, part of the insurance and maintenance.
  • Downsizing « Moving to smaller house, duplex or semi can be a way of reducing your cost of living. Keeping a larger house so that the adult children can be accommodated may result in you paying a lot more living expenses than necessary.
  • Money Tip « Consider selling your family house and moving to a smaller place.
  • Move out time « If you allow your adult children to sponge off you and not pay their share of expenses then it is likely to delay your retirement plans. If you keep propping up your children’s lifestyle it will lead them to poor money handling habits. It could lead them to a habit of living in debt as they are used to a standard of living with you that they could not afford on their own.
  • Money Tip « Give your children a deadline to move out. 6 – 12 months is a good time. Empower your children.
