Every guy goes through this. You graduate from high school and feel the need to get out of the house, be your own man. Well, it's the exact opposite for me. My mom only has me pay for phone/insurance. She cooks me food if I want it. She lets me leave whenever, given that I do well in school (3.97 woot). I take off at 2am, come back at 6 and she knows what I've been up to, and then I take off for work/school. She lets me bring over girls and I wind up having to walk them out of the house, by her window, early in the morning. She just laughs at me. How are your guys' mom experiences? Do you like living with the parentals? Edit: I'm 19, and I plan to stay with her until I'm 25 and done with grad school.
