~ Going to be a grandma ~

Friday, June 18, 2010

My daughter is 19 years old. The same age I was
when I found out I was pregnant with my son. She
thinks she knows it will be difficult.
she has no idea. She only sees now the romantic
side of struggling, what you see in a halmark movie.
But it's not romantic. It's heart breaking,
and all I can do now is watch and wait for her heart
to break, I know first hand that its coming. No
amount of love can prevent that now.
I never wanted them to know what it is to struggle
like I did. I tried so hard to give them a chance
at a better life. And I feel like somehow I failed
them. I would sell my soul for her not to go through this.

    Sigh - sorry to hear that. But you know YOU can't live her life for her - all you can do is be there for her when she needs you - if you'll just let her do it her way now, she may come to value your advice WAY more in a few years! :) Yeah, I know, it SUCKS, but kids really DO know it all! :)

    Hugs,

    We can only do so much for our children. They will make their own decisions. If we could put them in a bubble and protect them from everything, we probably would. You did not fail. The best we can hope for is that some of the wisdom we try to instill in them will stick. All you can do now is be there for her with as much support as possible. Will keep you and your family in my thoughts.
