Because I have absolutely no control or expectations, our relationship has ascended to the next level. I'm still Mom, just a much better, more compassionate, softer, more realistic version of Mom. His life is his to define and embrace with no expectations from me. I just love being on the sidelines of his life and to watch him bloom!
My name is Mary and I'm a parent of teenagers. I wish I could share more specifics with you. I'd like to talk about the day-to-day stresses and triumphs that make our family life what it is. It might be cathartic to tell you why I cried last week, or to write a blog post about a lovely conversation I had with one of my children. But I won't do that. It wouldn't feel right.
