"Nobody tells you that if you live long enough and if you survive the inevitable stresses and mistakes, the best part of parenting is having your children in your life as adults ... your ultimate purpose is to get through the child development years to savor the pleasure of having in your life a magnificent adult with whom you have an excellent relationship ... if you're aware at the beginning how this process works, you can make better choices about the kind of memories you want to end up with."
Lois Haddad.

Well done Angel!!! xx

On another note, the first day our now deceased cat Zigs, came to live with us, she went missing for two weeks!

I think she was trying to decide whether she wanted to live with us or not.

Anyway, she decided that we were ok, and when she did come back, she never went missing again.

Hope yours come back soon... :O(

Thanks Trac :) That actually made me feel a lot better. He's a cat, not a baby. He should be able to survive in this wild wild suburb.

I dunno if I can say that parenting gets easier once they're walking... Or just more terrifying!

GREAT quote. I believe! So we're going hiking together this wekend, instead of doing the dumb S.E.A. extra lessons they want us to do. I stick my tongue out at the establishment!
