Whether you are a new parent, a veteran, or a grandparent, you know first hand that once children enter our lives, we are never the same again. Children bring laughter, love, joy, and innocence into our world. Their hugs, their smiles, their ideas, their accomplishments bring a comfort and pride that we often never experienced before. In them, we rediscover ourselves and redefine ourselves, becoming better individuals with each passing day. Truly, nothing compares to the wonders of parenthood.
However, every parent knows that although children are a blessing, the parenting process can sometimes be chaotic and outright bizarre! As parents, we put everything we have--and then some--into our children, hoping to raise them right and to give them a future better than our own. But who among us hasn’t experienced at least one incident that makes us cringe? And who doesn’t have a truck load of memories that make us chuckle and shake our heads in utter disbelief?
I am creating this blog to celebrate the wonderful relationship between parent and child. Not only do I want to explore with you the heart-melting joys, but I want to embrace the crazy mischief , as well, which makes each and every day of parenting an exciting adventure. Join me as we share that which sends parents repeatedly back and forth from shocking AAAH! to exhausted (but happy) Zzz‘s!
