Mom's & Dad's, Are you Listening?

I'm one of the lucky ones, my son talks to me.

Many kids don't talk to their parents, they don't feel they can. It's sad. Kids have so much to say about themselves, their friends, their feelings, their lives. Most often, it's indirectly and you have to be listening, it's there, are you?

I often wonder why mine talks.

Is it me, is it him?

I like to think it's the relationship that I've worked hard to build from very early on.

Nurture, love, listen







How often do you grab a drink, sit down and clear your head and have a conversation with your child...they talk, you listen? Really, how often?

I know how busy I get with Meredith, with schedules, with what has to be done next, and so on.

When I found out I was pregnant with my son over 14 years ago, I promised myself, my unborn child and the Lord above way back then that I would do my best to be the best Mom I could be.

I'm continually trying to do just that.

Are You?

Really, I'm looking for it...if you find it, hang on to it for me ;)

Wife to my Very Best Friend & Mom to a **Teenage** son and a 4 year old Daughter.

11 years between the...ahem...darling...children...they both think they are only children.

Strong willed, independent, each one is **ALWAYS RIGHT** so the other is **ALWAYS WRONG** and so on...no wonder I'm looking for my mind half the time!
