@Isilme: That’s great progress to him 1) taking on adult responsibilities and 2) seeing what all you do for him!  *toast* to the baby steps. 


Ok, I have to confess, I’ve gotten my dad to do my taxes every year until this year (when we did them together so I can now do them myself – mine are kinda complicated).  The other areas of my life, I promise, I am an adult and do myself…

Very awesome that he’s starting to do this stuff on his own! It’s showing that he’s really ready to start taking responsibility on some of this and making progress! Yay!

And don’t worry…we take our taxes to get done by someone. We have a rental property and we don’t want to screw them up, so we have someone else take care of them for us.

Oh my gosh, are you me? My SO’s mom is EXACTLY like that, she still has access to his bank accounts, does all his laundry, tells him how to clean stuff, cooks for him, babies the crap out of him…it makes my blood boil, but as much as SO has tried to get her to back off she just will not cut the apron strings. It’s so bad that he still doesn’t know how to write a check — at 22-almost-23 years old. Seriously. SO is moving in with me in 3 weeks and I am putting my foot down after that. It’s just flat out unacceptable to be living with your SO and having your own life together (which should be emotionally and financially PRIVATE and independent) and still answering calls from mommy every day and having her control your bank accouts.

I’m happy for you that your SO is finally stepping up! That’s definitely a good thing 🙂

@Kant: HAHAHA i was just going to ask if she was me also! My SO’s mom is the bank manager at his bank so she handles EVERYTHING before I came along… ITs gotten better now, since I put my foot down, She doesnt go into his account and make sure he isnt spending to much like she used to! Can you beleive she used to do that? I almost died! Its baby steps but he’ll get there…
