Mom’s Corner: I’m Sorry Mom
|Me & My Mom|
With Mother’s Day around the corner, I have been thinking about my Mom a lot lately. She is a spectacular woman and I know I would not be the person I am without her influences throughout my life…even when I was a bratty teen who thought she was soooo mature and knew everything and parents were soooo dumb. Well I now see the err of my ways. Becoming a mother and now having a teen-aged daughter enlightens me in ways I never imagined when I was a teenager myself. I get why I had to call to tell mom where I’d be and why I got grounded for being a smart-mouth and why respect was so important. I must say, I see myself in my daughter and my mother in myself as I have now begun this phase in my own life. I hope to parent half as well as my mother did and get through all the parenting phases as well as she has. I also would like to formally apologize to my Mom for everything I put her through as a child, mostly a teen, because, I get it now. I love you and thank you for making me, well, me.
