Sigrid will be 12 in March. This was her first look at her world. Laura
has the girls fix their lunches. I think she has them make the sandwiches
for all week and each day they put one in their lunch sack. Laura looked at
Sig's stack of sandwiches and each had a big bite taken out of them!
Helen said it best about raising kids! Hindsight makes it easy, but when
you are in the throes the task it is not so simple. My recipe for raising is
"not too much"!!Just think if you add too much love you get doting.
Too much freedom dangerous. Too much togetherness, hovering. Too
much praise makes one think they are perfect. Too much discipline
becomes cruelty. No discipline makes one lax. The list could go on and on.
Guess that is why being a parent is a for those less than 50!! Most parents
are doing more than parenting. The good ones are trying--Erin
said--"doing our best"!! So what more could be expected of a parent than
doing their best. Hindsight makes any chore an easy one!
