What I learned from my kids this summer

HKR2Summer is far from over, but I won’t get my kids together again for a long time, and it’s gratifying that they teach me something every year. Here’s what I have learned so far this summer:

1. All three adult kids used this photo on their Facebook pages at the same time after a recent vacation. It is still the profile photo for the boys.

This is so sweet for a mom because they live in three different cities, and it’s getting harder to get together. I cherish this one.

2. That video games incorporate some old songs that kids love. When my youngest asked about some old 1970s songs, I was surprised, and he told me he’d heard the music on a video game. It made me realize that they do appreciate some of the old tunes.

3. That I have raised “two grown men.” I know this because they remind me of it all the time. “I am a grown man, Mom,” has been the mantra this year.

4. That my daughter will keep us all in pictures forever. She sent this one to all of us and many more.

I have more to learn, and hopefully they will share. A lot of what I’ve learned is how to let go, and I will share some of that in an upcoming article in Her Times on Aug. 4.
