Choosing Mom

Fridays I fluctuate between Five Minute Fridays and InstaFriday. But we are all community here, right? They can be combined into one post.
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.
Topic: Choose
parenting, tween
I was not a parent kid. You know those kids who want their parent at all their functions, to help in their class and take them places. Yeah, those kids, that wasn't me.
But I parent one of those kids. It comes two fold. It makes my heart swell with love that she thinks so much of us that she wants us there by her side in all things. Not just us but Grandma and Grandpa, her whole family if they can make it.
At the same time I start to realize how it must of hurt my parents that I was so distant as a tween/teen.
As she asks me to please still teach confirmation when I get up to that grade, please still run the camp when I get there, please come to this or that, tears well my eyes. For I know that this will not always be the case, she will one day say Mom stay home.
I am just glad that right now she chooses me.

  1. It is so true that eventually they will be ready to go it on their own. Some earlier than others. All too soon for their parents!

  2. I am the same way. I could have cared less if my parents attended a function but my daughter lets me know that she expects everyone to attend her stuff. Mom and Dad, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, and all her friends.

  3. My daughter is still young and whether or not she wants me involved is so random and often inconvenient. I'll have to remind myself to better enjoy those moments when she needs me.


Thanks for stopping by! We love to read your comments. In this crazy world it sometimes takes me a bit to get back to you right away, but please know that we are trying, especially if you ask a question or invite us over to your blog.
