Can we talk?

Do you have children?
Do they drive you around the bend?
Are you just about over them?
Are they living with you?
Are they in their sweet little Halloween costumes right now?
Are you going out tonight with dread?

DON'T...
be dreadful...

I promise that this is the very best time of your relationship with them....
some day in the near future,
they will be young adults
 (old children, actually)
and I mean that sincerely...
the relationship will be getting old,
and 
they will still be acting like children.
You will wish for the day that they come to you and say
"I AM MOVING OUT!"
with a huff and a puff 
they will want to knock your house down,
but they won't,
and 
you 
will 
be 
glad 
to see them out the door....
for nature, in it's infinite wisdom,
makes these old children.....
well, let's just say....
irritating as hell.....
really.
not kidding....






So, those of you who are heading out into the cold evening
with sweet little, excited children...ENJOY!
I mean it....do it while you can,
because they are aging too....
and will soon be scarier than 
the hobblin gobblins you see tonight
they will be the 
OLD CHILDREN!
Bwahaaaa!

  1. Absolutely true! I was thinking about teenagers huffing and puffing just yesterday. How do we all survive that special kind of joy?

  2. Amen.

    (okay, so technically mine aren't out of the house yet, but the thought of it - no matter how much they bug me now - makes me all teary)

  3. Completely understandable....and I think most mothers of "old children" will agree...they come back to see you often enough to keep the memory fresh....smiles.
