  • awwwww i remember when I left for college (i'm the youngest of 5) my mom cried all the way home (I went to college 12 hours from home). Her and i are extremely close and she just keeps saying "when did you grow up?" I know for me I can't believe it's been 2 months since my lil one was born... i can't believe how time flies when you have a child

  • I'm now room-mates with my 20yo dd, and it's a tough transition, from parent to peer. I keep finding myself asking myself if the annoying or downright wrong things that she does now are a direct reflection on how I acted as a mother or the result of some bad example that I set for her.

    Do children ever get easy?
