Maybe back in the day kiddos had sleepovers with pillow fights and a warm cuppa milk before bed. Today, there’s rafting down rapids on the XBOX and soaking in a steamy hot tub instead of bath time in a claw foot tub. Sleepytime was a tiny bit later than usual but, no wake-up calls in the middle of the night for this mama. Phew!!!
Being a parent of an only child, not by choice but, by circumstance, I often feel guilty and saddened about not giving my daughter a sibling. As much as my mind knows the reasons, and even the benefits of our situation, my heart still hasn’t totally wrapped itself around having a family with an only child. Finding a BFF where both the kids and parents get along has been an incredible blessing to our family. For this, I am wholeheartedly grateful.
