I heard my 3 daughters outside giggling on the porch Sunday. You see, my oldest daughter came home Saturday from college and she brought home new ideas, more self-assurance and a ton of dirty laundry. My youngest daughter came in the house to proudly show me her newest acquisition. She had a beautiful henna tattoo on her ankle. What?
Now some of you moms out there may think it’s no big deal. But you are talking to the mom who didn’t allow her kids to watch Power Rangers because of the violence. I overwatched everything and anything my two oldest did. They still tease me to this day.
However, the years and more children have loosened me up and at times, have softened my hard and fast rules. I listen more and try to talk less. I try to laugh with them and enjoy each of my five. Who knows? I may get one?…not.
