What I Know Now

on October 30, 2012

I’m visiting my friend Kelly at Exceptionalistic and guest posting there!

Ever wish you knew what you know now, way back when? I wrote a letter to my 28-year old self sharing exactly that. Hopefully, if you are a parent with young children and wonder if you’ll ever have an adult conversation; if you will ever have enough money to spare; if the unending discipline and teaching will pay off, this letter is for you.

It will be worth it!

    Of course I loved this!!! Great post Melinda. I appreciate you sharing with me and my readers. I also appreciate that things will get easier (although I’m so not ready for my kids to get any bigger)!

      Thanks Kelly! And, believe me, day after tomorrow they will be in high school. Mine are 25, 26, and 29… I can’t understand it! But adult children are AWESOME!

    I agree, Melinda. I loved each age of my children (some ages more than others :-)), but adult children are so much fun because they can finally be your friends.

      I read a wise comment that said you can be your child’s parent now and friend later, or friend now and parent later.. so glad I was a parent THEN so I can be a friend NOW LOL!
