Our Children

As the mother of a 35 year old daughter, I am proud to admit that I devoted my attentions to the first eighteen years of her life. I did not go out to work, but gave time when she was at school, to charity volunteering. We had none of the modern gadgets that are considered compulsory in the world of today, yet she was helped to progress at every level. If research was needed for a project, we took her to the library. We fed her books, as did her teachers, she loved school and made plenty of friends. When my husband died following a six year illness, I went back to work, but often felt resentment from working mothers. Being a parent is a privilege, and we need to remember that time given to children is like paying forward to the future.

Where did that come from? It was a comment I made on an interesting blog post this morning. Well worth a read, I think:

Your Attention Matters

Thursday Special ~ Kissing Advice.

A few weeks ago our LBC group played with the topic of My First kiss, if only I had the following advice to hand, my efforts might have taken a different direction:

When Is It Okay To Kiss Someone?

  • When they’re rich. – Pam, age 7
  • The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that. – Curt, age 7
  • The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do. – Howard, age 8

Moving on… the answer to this question really tickled my funny bone!

What Do Most People Do On A Date?

On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.– Martin, age 10

If that whetted your appetite there are plenty more here.
