dick meet jane

People, people, people, i'm speaking mostly to the younger crowd here, those married about 10 yrs or less. Take it from someone who's been married for 38 years, parents especially mom's can get so wrapped up in their children but dad's as well, 20 years fly by and one morning at the breakfast table the mom looks up at her husband and has to say, "Hi, I'm Jane who are you?" And Dick replies, "I'm Dick do we know each other?" It seems outrageous but I know you know what I'm talking about. And this brings us back to my prior posts when baby is a newborn, the four hour feeding schedule, the sleeping through the night in their crib, not your bed. Daytime should always be for baby, not catching up on your scrapbooking! The dishes will wait, the housecleaing will wait, the laundry will wait, I repeat daytime is for baby, however, nighttime is for Mommy and Daddy. Keep the bond you both have going, like a Certificate of Deposit it grows and grows, so should your relationship. Trust me on this one...the children WILL grow up and LEAVE. And guess who's left at home, Dick and Jane who should be more in love at this point than ever before, looking at their children, not mom's children, not dad's children, but THEIR children with pride and joy in their eyes. It takes work, dedication, and committment to each other. And always remember children learn mostly by what they see, when they see both of you loving on each other, it brings security and a great foundation for their own future. A special note to the Dad's. "The best thing a father can do for their children is to love their mother." Read that somewhere but have no idea where, but it's good isn't it? Ciao (chow)
