"Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy." - Robert A. Heinlein My parents made sure that I could take care of my own, stuff wasn't handed to me. I see kids today, and worry not only for their future but for mine as well.
So true. rarely ever do I have time to do my hair, makeup, or wear nice clothes, but that's because my time is better spent with my kids. They'll remember whether mom spent quality time with them or not.
I'll be there my precious one! Something I want my daughter & my sons to always feel & know, that I'm there for them no matter what. That I'll do everything I can to support them, their individuality, their dreams. If they don't call me, I'll call them!
