Am I getting old?

Am I getting old...don't answer that!!! First I want to preface this post with this statement......I am not a perfect parent...not even close! I do not have perfect children....not even close! I have said it before and I will say it again...parenting is hard work and very very very intentional! It will not just happen....oh now there are those children that are so complacent it seems that very little parenting is needed....if you have one of those children and it happens to be your only child...either keep quiet or keep having them!

OK now that I got that out of the way??? On to the am I getting old part.....there are so many things that get on my nerves more that usual....like I can't stand to sit with someone who is crunching ice or eating chips beside me...oh it doesn't bother me if I am eating at the same time but if I am not...I really feel like I am going to come out of my skin if I have to sit and endure the crunching!

Well I am increasingly feeling that way when I am out and about and see out of control children! It makes me crazy...why..because most of it could be handled relatively easily by just being the parent and not the push over! I have never seen so many parents who back down and give in to their children.....even little children. You do not need to scream and yell....you do need to take control! I promise you will be so glad that you built this type of relationship when they are older!

Getting old is only in our mind.
Age never prevented people from doing things:
