We parents find it difficult to see our children as young adults sometimes. And I have to remind myself that sometimes they need to make mistakes on their own, at certain times. Then there are the times, quite often, when I find myself viewing them as my little ones; that probably will not stop. More so now then when they were little, we all need to be patient with each other; our kids need to be patient with us too, because it’s difficult seeing our kids spreading their wings, “what if they get hurt”, etc. This stage of parenting, nobody can prepare you for. I’m on my knees more now because, they are out in the world, and I have to trust that the seeds planted in them as children will spring up. It’s amazing to see them grow into such wonderful adults, although, it goes without saying, they are and forever will be MY LITTLE ONES.
