Today's topic from #BlogFlash2012 - which I am joining almost half-way through the month - is CHILDREN. My most common computer password expresses, everytime I log into a website or what have you, how much I adore my children. My first internet handle was "luvmibabies" - yes, I am a mother hooked on her children.
I have heard rumors that most Mothers & Daughters go through a horrible season or two between ages 9 and 18 before they can actually look each other in the eye again.
I must have done something wrong in the parenting department. My daughters and I have never gone through that “Who is this female under my roof who looks somewhat like me but is so annoying I can’t stand to be in the same room as her!”
My belief is we were bound together by the not-so-great times so we cherish each other that much more in all the other times. We thrive on vulnerability, transparency and love. We have each others backs. We see the best in each other. We appreciate each other’s idiosyncrasies.
Last night my children and I had a slumber party in my living room. My daughters, my eleven-year-old son and I all chose a different spot and we laughed our way to sleep.
