Anyhoo, in the miracle that is the Internet, a real, honest to goodness Mom chimed in and gave me her perspectives. Better yet, she linked to her own blog where she offers that kind of head-smacking logic that a Mother can demonstrate better than anyone. Read it here. Best quote of the post:
"Most kids don't grow up lamenting that they wish their parents had spent LESS time with them, and most parents don't look back wishing that they'd missed more of their kids' childhoods."In another age I would have laughed at such an obvious statement. Today, I almost weep that there are so many who call themselves enlightened, and yet have no grasp of the truth behind such a clear fact.
