Mine are all grown up and made me a Grandma (yay)! Two words: BE PRESENT. So many times I'm quite sure I was in the same room but not mindfully present, even in the days of no cable and 3 channel choices. It's more important now as technology distracts us from being there when we *think* we're being there, just because we're in the room. If you're staring at your phone or laptop, you're not "there." Children sense that at a very young age and it's heartbreaking to watch.

There's something quite rebellious about that third one - survival? Never played by the rules. If he'd been first, he'd have probably been an only child. He's caused a lot of painful tears, but redeemed them with many joyful ones. Banned from the church nursery at age two, but couldn't imagine my life without him!

I've met half of your kids - you ARE a wonderful mom!

I think I'm a good mom, too. I wouldn't have said that when my kids were your kids age, but they've all turned out unique and awesome in their own way and I'd like to think I played a part in that. Three kids - one of each. Absolutely couldn't live without them.

Also? Mother-in-law. But it helps to have the best DIL and SIL in the world - they make me look good.

I won't bore you with being THAT grandma. But still.....

We never had cell phones when our kids were little (they didn't come in the rotary dial model) but texting your spouse a picture of a "blow-out" is more appropriate than saving the gift for when they get home to see it.

And the word 'bovine,' even if used endearingly as she feeds said offspring (prior to blow-out) should probably not be uttered. (snort!)

And I'm not letting Alece get by with coming to town again without meeting her! Have a wonderful time!

"Clamoring for things we can't sustain." How did you know? Very powerful, Ryan.
