I know for myself that its been so long since I was a dependent child. (I certainly don't want to insinuate I have outgrown childhood.) That I am more familiar with motherhood through watching my own daughters raise their children, than I am filled with memories of my own childhood, or even being their mother.
In fact I am in awe of their strength, energy and stamina. I recently kept my two grandaughters for two days, and had a flash to the past about how strenuous it is to intercept, outthink and lead small children into appropriate behavior.
Don't forget to think GREEN this month. Earth Day is April 22. We're going to bring you an Earth tip with every blog in April.
Tip for the day: Growing coffee under the shade of tall trees instead of chopping down tropical forests will protect song birds. Drink only "shade grown coffee."
