I wonder.....

I wonder if he'll remember the fun things, and not the arguments over bed times.

I wonder if he'll remember the "cool mommy" and not the mommy that makes him do his homework.

I wonder if he'll ever know just how much he is loved and wanted.

And I hope he has the best the world can offer him, the minimum of pain, and the maximum of joy.

  1. I always wonder those things, too.

  2. The answer is YES.
    My baby turns 12 today. As parents we all wonder that. But in the end it is our love that speaks volumes as an example to our children. We give them boundaries becuase we love them. We are strict because we care. We give them roots so that when they have their wings they are ready to fly.
    Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. agreed - the answer is definitely 'yes'... hugs, smiles, 'i love yous' and 'i hear yous'... speak volumes... all of that other stuff is normal... ok, i confess to sometimes going to bed with tears in my eyes hoping to do better the next day... after homework and video game battles... i try to remind them that i did not ASSIGN said homework, am just the one who has to make sure they get it done! while moms may not get the fun jobs, we get the jobs that are necessary... and you are and will be very loved...

  4. He will remember that you were always there for him. And when he has children of his own, he'll use those wonderful skills of parenting that you taught him, with his own children. My children are grown now and they realize why I made them do their homework and help around the house. Your son is adorable!

  5. I hope that he knows how lucky he is to have a mom like you.

  6. I think he will.

    BTW, I can't believe how much he's grown in the past few months.

  7. Lori, I absolutely agree with all of the above comments. There really is no doubt in my mind he'll remember the good with the bad and that he is so loved. I agree with Mary Jane, it can be so tough sometimes.... we have those homework battles here daily. You're such a wonderful Mom (you even read "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" for fun!). :-)

  10. The answer is, 'He will'. It doesn't always feel like it, but when you love them so much, they know it and the older they get, the more they realize it.

  12. From the kid side of the equation (even if I'm an old kid...but, since I don't have any of my own)...the answer is yes. I'm so appreciative of the good things my parents gave me...
