The Best Part is, I like You
|Hop's graduation from Auburn this May.|
How my life has changed in 10 years! 10 years ago I was a crazy and stressed mom of 4 ages 5-12. Fast forward to today & I'm still crazy, but I'm now a mom of 4 ages 15-22. I don't know where those 10 years went, but they flew by. While I was driving children places, teaching kids how to drive, cooking dinner, folding clothes, and monitoring homework, all my little chicks grew up. I have always loved my children. Duh, they're mine. What I've really noticed over the last few years is that I like them, and I tell my children I like them. At first they said: "you have to we are your children", but that's an untrue statement. I have to love them, but not like them. I heard a mom say she loved her children, but didn't like them very much. She said her children were mean. Those statements saddened me greatly. If you don't like your children, you need to change your parenting style, because I have noticed that because I like my children, other people seem to like them too.

Life is still full, but a little quieter now. I can't imagine how quiet it will be once Elizabeth leaves for college. I'm not sure Henry is ready for it yet. He's told E he doesn't want her to leave. He will be the only gopher left to do anything around the house.
