HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
Soon enough it will be his high school graduation and the ugly cry will see some action. But for now, I’ll just pretend I have something in my eye and pick him up and hug him while I still can.
I’m so proud of his hard work and how much he’s grown up.
My Summer Reading
In other panic inducing news, my oldest is almost 11. That means she’ll be going off to college in a mere 7 years. (Argh! Breath deeply.)
This is “Mama Crunch Time.” So here are a few books I’m reading (or re-reading) this summer so that I can make the most of these precious years at home with my best friends.
How To Talk So Your Kids Will Listen and Listen So Your Kids Will Talk
I’ve heard good things about this book, but I’ve yet to read it. With the long summer ahead of us and lots of time to talk, this seems like an ideal summer reading choice.
Parenting with Love and Logic
I read this book many years ago and I seem to remember enjoying the immensely practical advice. Now that my kids are in a different season of childhood, I think it’s time to revisit it.
Grace Based Parenting
I think I’ll be rereading this book my whole life. Great wisdom for parenting…and just about any relationship. I like to balance any typical parenting book (that focuses on my children’s behavior) with this one that focuses on my heart, perspective and attitude. A must read.
