Daddy saved the day...and an important issue that I needed to discuss

I know I make my dad out to be some horrible person. And he does have major issues, believe me. But over all these years, even with all the bad things he's done, he's still the person I've run to when I need help. Like this morning. After I dropped H off at daycare I heard my tire clicking against the concrete. Great, AGAIN!?!?! Seriously!?!? What in the heck is it about me and my car where I have such horrible luck with crap getting stuck in my tires?? So I get to work and park and get out and I hear a hissing/gurgling sound. The air is rushing out against the wet pavement. My first thought? I need to call daddy. He came right over, looked at it, took my keys and debit card, and got it taken care of for me. They had to patch it from the inside the hole was so big. I really appreciate these times, when he comes to my rescue like this...makes me feel like I have a normal dad.

Thank God it's and stepmom are watching H tomorrow early evening so little sister and I can go see Blades of Glory. I am so excited, it looks freaking hilarious!! I'm going to laugh so hard I snort, I just know it. And I don't know if we've ever been to a movie together by ourselves like this, it's going to be so much fun. We might get some dinner before hand, not sure yet though.

On a more serious boss just told me that a friend of her daughters(she has twin girls in 6th grade) is pregnant...this is so scary. 12 years old, in the 6th grade, and she's pregnant! She had u/s pics at school the other day. Gosh when I was in 6th grade I wasn't even close to thinking about sex...I think I still played with my Cabbage Patch dolls and wanted to be a Veterinarian and was all into saving the environment! I didn't even have BOOBS! I just started shaving my legs and wearing a training bra to cover my newly developing lop sidedness. We had our sex ed class and I was embarrassed as hell! My sister is 4 years younger than me, although she doesn't act it, and when I was a Freshman I lectured her like crazy on not having sex until she was at least a Junior and had been with the guy for a minimum of 6 months. I had lost my virginity at 15, my Freshman year...I had been with the guy quite a while, at least 6 months, but I was way too young. I never wanted my sister to have to deal with issues like that, so I lectured lectured lectured her to death...she was in the 5th grade. Good thing I did, because by the time she got to middle school(I went to 6th grade in elementary school, but after our class left they moved 6th grade to middle school w/ 7th grade) kids were having sex, doing drugs, you name it it was happening. In 6th and 7th grade! I mean I heard talk of drugs when I got to 7th grade...but I didn't know anybody pregnant in school! Apparently these days pregnant 6th or 7th graders is fairly common?? My mom works at an elementary school, kindergarten through 5th grade...and these kids are already having sex. !!!!! Anyway my lecturing apparently worked...not to mention the fact that I have exceptional younger siblings with good judgement...but my sister waited until her Junior year, and she'd been with the guy well over 6 months. They dated almost 2 years, before he cheated on her and broke her heart. But anyway, I am just shocked at the fact that now girls in the 6th grade are getting pregnant. I want to homeschool H!! Or hope she's some really big nerd that is so into her studies she doesn't even give boys a thought! You know one of those girls you see on that show on MTV, "Made", that has frizzy hair and wears highwater jeans and snorts when she laughs and is in book club...please oh please Miss H, don't grow up too fast...please stay do I keep her innocent??
