There are so many posts by people that "hate" their kids or step kids. I want to make a different post. My daughter is twelve. She's cute, sweet, helpful, funny, smart, and loving. She also has bouts of tween attitude, laziness, and and stubbornness.
I am every bit as enthralled with her at 12 as I was when she was born. I feel so lucky to be that child's mother. I look forward to all our future adventures as we navigate this growing up thing.
I know parenthood isn't all roses and sunshine. I am not trying to come down on those of you that post about your difficulties. I just wanted to show the other side too. Being her mom is such a fun trip.
Hugs for moms, dads, grand parents, step parents, guardians... <3 Protect them and love them. Thanks.
