Every once in a while, don’t you just bask in the parent payback? Sometimes it doesn’t come around as much as I would like it to! But, if you are lucky it may come. I was reading through some of my old journal entries and found one that almost made me giggle. My little pre-teen can be quite volatile in his moods these days and will act like I pretty much just bug him. This is what he said to me about a year and a half ago, “Mom, I feel bad for kids that don’t have you for a mom, don’t you?” I am hoping that maybe, possibly, hopefully he still feels that on occasion:).
