Last night I went into the local grocery store to pick up a few items, and was met by the strangest sight. Two boys that my son played Baseball with back in Elementary School were working as Sackers..... My oldest has talked about starting work next year, and I know that day is coming. But seeing those boys with their light fuzzy facial hair, WORKING, came as quite a shock. I suddenly felt so OLD! My baby boy is becoming a man.

I can’t really say that I believe in ghosts, but there are definitely things that have happened to me all throughout my life that are very hard to explain. Believe me....I’ve tried. I rationalize till I’m blue in the face, but in the end, all the “other explanations” just don’t make any sense. Bumps in the night, shadows, voices, footsteps, and full apparitions.....either I’m haunted, or I’m crazy.

I always wanted an open relationship with my children so that when they got to be teens they could come to me about anything. ANYTHING! And so far..... they have. Do they talk to me about drugs? yes! Do they talk to me about sex? Absolutely!! masturbation? Yep, that too. There really isn't a topic that is "off-limits", and I don't think that there should be. I may not always answer a question if it is too personal, but they are always free to ask. I answer them honestly and matter of factly. Is this how parenting should be? By being open about these issues, does it diminish my authority as a parent? I don't think so......My daughter often tells me that I am her Best Friend because she can tell me anything. Can we be our children's "friends' and still be "the parent"? Or am I setting myself up for difficult times ahead?
