This is great, thanks for sharing. I am a parent of two teenagers now. When they were tiny, I couldnt wait until they could speak and walk and use the toilet. Then once they were there, I was excited for the days when we could go on bike rides and share stories and help fix the car or make lunch. And now that they are “young adults”, they try their hardest to be independent and show they don’t need our help. And now that they are leaving for college soon, I wish they were little again. I miss seeing them run to the door to greet me when I come home. We had good times. But I can’t help to think I should have endured Candyland a few more hundred times, and tried to enjoy tea parties more when I could. Hopefully I will get to relive some of the magic through grand-children someday.
