Best thing about being a parent…. edited

Whats your most fondest memory of your kids???

My stepdaughter sent me a pic from over 20 years ago… she was just 16 and we were making a trip to Arkansas to see my parents and the journey began… the pic, just a FYI… we were both chubby… cute, but chubby…

With my own children… I have many fond memories… and many that aren’t…

But the positive side of being a mother… I saw how difficult it was to be a parent… male, female… no one has a crystal ball… we just hatch them and hope for the best… some helicopter over their kids… I like my method better… no one is crying for help at this moment in time… I do expect it to stay that way… and I have no expectations when it comes to our kids… just hope…

But the positive side… I learned and still am… I went into parenting with warped religious values and came out on the other side a different person… because I wanted to keep learning… religion doesn’t promote learning…

So, being a parent, for me, it was a choice… I couldn’t do abortion and knew, giving birth meant a 18 year commitment… most marriages don’t last that long….

I tried… with a broken body and damaged brain… I still tried…

Can any of them say the same???

There is reward to parenting… watching them grow….

I’m still waiting…. (sarcasm intended)….

Mom….
