    My grown up son has flown the nest,

    and we miss him. We travel up to see him, and the neighbours regularly tell tales of when he was a little one, and spent a lot of time with them. He has a life of his own now, and my experience would be not to miss a second of your children growing up. When it's gone, it's gone...

    If The Kids Are Ok, Everything's Ok

    Just got some very exciting news about one of my children reading at 2 1/2 grade levels above current grade.  It was a pretty dull day before the news-- not really bad, but just another day to get through.  Now I am happy, proud (though I don't mean to boast), and feeling very...

    If you can't take care of kids, be involved in their lives, and be willing to make sacrifices for them, use birth control.
