My son called me this weekend and said he went to our old stomping grounds, a race track and said he felt like he was 10 years old again. He was chuckling the whole time as he talked about the old drivers that came out to run a few races. You have to love it when they call just to talk!

The part I found to be the most difficult was stepping back when they came of age and got married. It is hard when you have been the nurturer, the nurse, the healer, the hugger, and all things that go into raising a child and now you can't do that anymore.
Someone else is doing that now.

The hardest part and the proudest part of being a parent is knowing you've done your very best. Then knowing when to let those strings go. Letting the sons & daughters soar. Knowing that they can soar. How awesome is that.

In reality while they do move away and grow in adulthood, the closer they get to be. It doesn't matter how far away they go. The closeness will always be there.

I have to agree Irish. This weekend my brother told me I had raised 2 of the most hard working and well mannered kids and didn't quite understand how I did it all on my own. Now you have to understand, my brother and I have never really gotten along and it got worse when our dad died. It seems as he ages he mellows out a bit. He was full of compliments which was really strange coming from him.

DLC sometimes maturity comes when we least expect it. So glad that he is seeing the light. Things happen. We change. Eyes seem to open up wider, and with that the hearts follow.
Perhaps he is taking a good look around him. Whatever the reason it's good. Glad he is complimenting you on a job well done. Of course it's well done. YOU did it. Really glad it's working out better.

Sure tell him that its bothering you. That you wish for that time to be just for you and the baby. Also ask him what fascinates him to want to watch. Perhaps he will surprise you. I wish you the best in this.
Have a great day!
