Girl Talk

My daughter is strong willed. Just like her mother. I found myself telling Cbabi that every time I talk to her lately it feels like she is totally ignoring me--so i talk louder--which is so much fun for everybody(sarcasm). So last night I went into her room and sat on her bed and just started talking. And this sentence came out of my mouth: "Everything you learn about being a woman you will learn mostly from me. I will teach you, and it would be easier if I felt you were listening to me. " We ended up hugging it out, looking at Martha Stewart's wedding cake book (research) and everything was good.

Parenting stinks sometimes; and sometimes it's the best thing ever. Here's hoping I get it more right than wrong. And when I get it wrong, I apologize.

grace & peace,

That's one of the best little tidbits I've heard in a while. I have four strong willed daughters, so reading that was right on time...thanks.

Hey Adrienne,

glad to know that someone else who is raising daughters is "fighting the good fight".

grace & peace,

What a wonderful moment. And probably one she'll remember for a very long time to come.

I'm glad you worked through it! Sounds like you have a great relationship with your daughter.
