Coo-Coo for the Beau Hunk

{New to the Beau Hunk saga? Start here.}

So, D2's lost her cute little car again due to her defiance and disrespectful attitude towards her father and I when it comes to the Beau Hunk.

Even his stint in the military can't foil this toxic relationship. Instead, it's just brought more drama into our home.

We can't quite figure out what it is about this guy that makes D2 coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs.  For two weeks, she has been sans automobile, and now we have allowed her the privedlege of driving Bessie, our fifteen year old pimped out minivan.

"Pimped out?" You ask?

Pimped out.

Bessie is 1997 metallic bronze in color with gold rims and definitely a lady with the black bra she wears  to protect her hood. Her age has begun to show as her letters have begun to fall off her back.

Old and pimped out; not cool for a high school senior to be driving around.

Worried that she might try to drive too many friends around and get distracted while driving, we yanked the back bench seat out. It now only seats four passengers instead of seven.

To add insult to injury, she is now paying for her own auto insurance to protect our dear beloved Bessie from harm.

Beau Hunk love = Coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs

  1. Whoa! This could have been my household a few years ago. It's hard to discipline. Follow through is even harder because, often, the punishment punishes us as well (bad attitudes and inconvenience). Love that you took the bench out and there is nothing more embarrassing or hideous for a Senior than to drive their parents' old van (or any van for that matter). Happy Hump Day!

    1. You're so right! Follow through is hard and inconvenient! :(

  2. Nice! I was given my moms 1991 Toyota. No friends allowed in it, no boys, no bad grades. If I complained: no car.

  3. I like your style! My daughters are still a good ways off from this type of saga, but I feel it coming too quickly. My 6 year old wants a bra for her birthday. How great is that! I love real discipline, and you've got it:-)

    1. Ha! That's hysterical!
      There's more to this story, but I'm letting some time pass to make sure I have a more balanced perspective on this chapter of the saga.

  4. I took my daughter's 11th grade Beau Hunk on a very long cross country drive to meet relatives that were rarely seen to convince her about his unsuitability. Nothing like being coupped up in a car for 20 hours to bring out the worst. She decided to dump him before the trip home.

  5. Ohh the Beau Hunk saga hasn't ended! lol. But, it's amazing what high school kids can make "cool" when they have to. So although you think that the van might not be cool enough, she might find a way to make the van and it's black bra work to her benefit lol. Will taking out the extra seats REALLY stop her from driving extra people around? ;) Let's hope!! hehe

  6. Wow. When I started to read this, I thought that Beau Hunk had wrecked her car and I was really starting to worry. I'm glad that life is at least car accident-free and I hope that she will appreciate your parenting at some point down the road.

  7. Ugh. I feel for you and, unfortunately, I think the only real option is waiting it out with this loser. Hopefully she'll come around sooner rather than later and see the light.
