Fairly new blog here -- check.
A few rant type posts -- check.
Time for a change of pace -- check.
A thought just occurred to me that I've once again failed to meet my mother's expectations. Oh, she's not around any more to make me aware of this though. She passed on almost 7 years ago.
But like every kid I knew, I heard the infamous line that went like this when I fell out of disfavor as a child:
"I hope you have kids just like you some day."
While I did fulfill part of the obligation to at least have the possibility of kids like me by producing one of each flavor they aren't and weren't "just like me." Now that they're young adults with one married with a family of his own, and the daughter is in the last year of college, it occurred to me that they've turned into pretty neat young adults.
Oh they aren't/weren't perfect kids. But they were pretty easy to raise and turned out well. I figure I just failed to pass on some type of devil gene that I possessed.
Oh well -- now I'll get to use that line myself with them. Only it'll be a positive remark rather than a negative one. Always a silver lining folks, always.
