Kids are often deemed to be an intense responsibility which lasts for decades.
Children also provide wonderful opportunities for entertainment. From the cute things they learn as infants to the idiot things they do as teenagers, children make life more interesting for parents. I am just glad my mom suffered through all of that with me.
Of course, now that I am an adult, I get to laugh back. Yesterday, my mom left a message on my voicemail to let me know that she had gone up on my grandmother’s roof to blow off the straw. The problem was that the step ladder fell over leaving her stranded on the roof.
Oh my, that is funny stuff. Later, we joked about the sun adling her brain.
I made up for it by giving her MD presents early.
