GOOD PARENTING DAYS

I suppose it's logical but pretty absurd that I enjoy hearing about my friends' children but not their babies.  Any child born before January 2007 does not affect my emotional state at all, but I have a hard time reading about any child born after I started trying to have a baby.  It's dumb, but that's the way it is.  And it sucks if you're one of my friends with kids in that age range.

But I love reading about people's older children, especially when they capture the great parenting days when children learn lessons about effort and show off their knowledge of coral.  Or when they crack me up.

FYI: frustrating parenting days are dreadful to read about.  As if I need any more reason to second-guess my lot in life.

1 This makes sense to me. And it's somewhat reassuring, as I used to fear that you had a hard time reading about children of any age.

BTW, until I read AFW's post, I didn't know APC could mean anything other than 'Armored Personnel Carrier', even though I've known a postman for years! Ironic.

2 So, I should refrain from telling you how within 15 minutes of their rising this morning, M1 had taken it upon herself to slug M2 in the face and neck, slam her bedroom door twice and throw M2's baby stroller into M2's room, only to bash the freshly painted door & take a good sized nick in it?

Yeah.

GLORIOUS morning had by all, let me assure you.  Someone must have used up all her 'best behavior' while visiting the grandparents for the past two weeks.

Needless to say, it's nothing that can't be cured with a little chore duty, some quality time in one's room and a good rear chewing from Mom. 

Cheers!
