OK, here goes; It's easy to be a mom. There's nothing to worry about. Kids just grow up and turn out great and you wonder why you didn't have a dozen. They are easy to teach and supervise and are just naturally polite and considerate. They will always respect you and listen to you and give a hand when they can. They want to make parenting as wonderful as possible for you.

Want me to pass the pipe?

Clover, my son is 17, and he is really vocal and quite fierce about not letting me baby him.   I'm pretty good about it most of the time, but there are those times when I can't help myself.  He just rolls his eyes at me (because he knows that, for the most part, I do respect his judgement and ability to manage his own life, and that my lapses are "just a mom thing").
This too shall pass.  All is well.

Is there a pipe that helps one accept what is? Pass it to me!
Respect ... is appreciation of the separateness of the other person, of the ways in which he or she is unique.

Well, it's been known to bring peace.  Kirk stopped being shocked by me about 30 years ago! ;D ;D ;D

And no, I'm not into it...just being silly and having fun.  :P
