I can’t really say I’ve made MISTAKES where they’ve saved me, but they are always there to help and get my head back on straight, should I need them. I’ve been extremly blessed with the parents I’ve been given, especially because a lot of my friends HAVEN’T. I hear these stories from my girlfriends and I can’t even imagine being treated the way they are. Granted, I’m only hearing one side of the story, but I can’t imagine them lying about it. They’re all grown ass ladies.

When I was about 22 years old I was shopping around for a better deal on car insurance.  Being a total idiot, I let my insurance LAPSE because I hadn’t figured out what to switch to yet.  I probably drove around for a month w/out car insurance!! That in and of itself was so so stupid.  Then when I finally went to get a new policy, since I had let my old one lapse I was going to have to pay a year up front.  I definitely didn’t have the money to do so.  Not only did my parents pay for it (I think I paid them back? I hope!) with money they didn’t really have either, I’m pretty sure my mom called the car insurance company for me and took car of the whole thing because I was so upset over being such a dumbass hhaa. 

I am much more intelligent these days but my parents will drop everything to help me (and my siblings) if they need to.

My parents are constantly helping us. We are very grateful to have them. They loaned my FI money to buy a car a few months ago… And we have been living with them since we had to move due to financial hardship. Parents are great.

Last week my mom talked me into going to the doctor for my panic attacks. FI had been trying to get me to go, but my mom is the one who pushed me hard enough. I got put on antidepressants and today I’m finally starting to feel like my old self again. Sometimes you just need your parents so give you that extra push.

@figgnewton:  It’s not about saving my butt, but my parents are ALWAYS there to help and support me. I feel so lucky. I know that if something ever happened, I could pack up my dog and move right back home and have them help me. I mean, I’m 34 and independent, but with a baby on the way I know that I will rely on them more than ever. And they like being there. Parents are the best :)))
