I been total shock how much I like being a mom. Some people thought certain ages of off spring are just terrible. I joyed the terrible twos and unbearable teen years.
When I was growing up I was far from a girly girl. I didn't play with dolls much. I rather go outside an rumble tumble with the neighbor hood boys.
One time a psychiatric told me when was a teenager in mid seventy that I had desire to be a “male” See even to this day there things I don't enjoy other female so called aggravate me. Like shopping or playing nasty little female games of cattiness.
But I had desire to raise a family. Confession time..I prefer male company over female company.
Raising and being part of Sawyer and Bart life. I wouldn't trade if for all the tea in china. I was there mom not a friend. Murphy and I parent. Opinion time...I don't think being your children friend and not parent does them any good in long run.
I don't believe being overly strict has any good result either.
Now both of the boys flew the nest. My oldest one is married to lovely girl Betty. I stay out of there life. Me getting involve in there life will only cause conflict.
Sure I have a good relationship with both of them. Actual someone told me they could see me being close to my daughter in law.
Confession time...I get tired of people asking me if I like my daughter in law. Yes I like my daughter in law not because she married my son. Because she a very lovely kind human being. That deserve common respect . I haven't yet heard anyone asking Murphy if he likes his daughter in law.
Bart is now dating Diane and she went to school with Betty and graduate out of high school with Betty in 2006.
I feel the same about Diane as I do Betty she to is a very lovely kind human being. That deserve common respect.
Being a mom once your children leaves home and is being a productive and responsible adult of society is whole different ball game. Plus it a lot easier to be a mom to grown children.
