12 YEARS OF the child ~ My child doesn't understand me,to silly.
15 YEARS OF the child ~ My child doesn't let me do anything.
18 YEARS OF the child ~ I keep controling
25 YEARS OF the child~ my opinion is the only right
35 YEARS OF the child-why don't they ever call?,why don't they come? They are so ungrateful!
not a common thing to talk about:
respect your children while they respect you.
P.S:no need to replie,i'm not coming back to this topic
Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed."
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for rewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button.
She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry.
She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her bag Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and radios, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. "I'm going to bed." And he did...without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?

I was touched by your "Mother" poetic words. I am very new here and to this realm of finding a soulmate and while a picture can sometimes say a thousand words as yours did when I saw it - your words you do speak say so much more than a picture ever could. I hope to hear from you.

I guess you are the exception. 'The hands that rock the cradle rule the world'...and how we have taken those hands for granted.
Thank you very much bonnie, but it is I who got lucky. My mom has always been my role model and hero. It caused me a lot of anguish when I was growing up, but the more I matured the more I appreciated picking her to be my role model. I never truely realized how blessed I was to have a mom like mine, until I too, became a parent. Now, as I go through the different stages of development with my own son, I realize that she taught me far more valuable things than any man that I've ever known has. Also she never said "I told you so" when I did things my own way, and the outcomes weren't as I had imagined. She helped me to be a strong, nurturing, and dependable dad. If it were not for her I would never have had the strength to raise my son alone after my divorce. If it were not for her teaching me to forgive I would still be bitter towards women, and not so focused on my son treating women with respect. Also I wouldn't be able to teach him that the family you create is a priority. I thank God for my mom every day and now I get to spend more time with her because she recently moved to the city/state where I've lived for the past 7 1/2 years. I finally get to see my best friend daily (If I want) after 13yrs. What makes me the most happy is to see the glow on her face when I walk into the room. She's proud of the name that I've made for myself and the lifestyle that I've created for my son, even though I'm not satisfied at the moment.
