Smothering Mother

My girls (13 & 13 1/2) are at a new developmental stage.  Womanhood is peeking in and yet they are still kids.   I wish for them to be helpful, kind, independent and assertive young women one day but I often wonder if I’m always the best example.  To circumvent my short-falls I enlist my close friends.  I hope that if the kids don’t feel comfortable about asking Mike or I about something they will go to someone I trust.  It’s just a theory and I’m banking my daughters futures on it.

Many years ago when they wanted to dress like me, and kiss me, and snuggle me.
