I would like to think that I am a "cool" Mom. I have noticed in the last few days since reading a particular book that spoke of approaching my children in a way that really responds to their own individual needs, Cameron and Colby are in a different place too. They are talking to me and responding to me in a way that has taken me by utter surprise. I feel a connection to them, especially my oldest, that I have not had since the start of my divorce 2+ years ago.
I hope and pray that as time goes on my boys realize what I have tried to do and that "yeah!" I was a pretty "cool" Mom after all.....Their lives are important to me and I want them to look at me not just as a parent but as a parent who cares and loves them through the challenges ahead. That in my mind is "cool."
