The Yin and the Yang

The teenage years with SuperPizzaBoy are very interesting. Sometimes it requires a lot more wisdom than I’ve got.

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  (Ephesians 6:4)

Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old.
(Proverbs 23:22)

Perfect Pairings

    I always love your pairings. Teens always make you feel kinda dumb. Jacob is already getting started so I can’t imagine what that will look like in 5 years. Much worse than Michael, I fear.

    As a mother to two children of your age Yogi, I find our memories of their teenage years totally differ!! I remember the fun times and they remember when their Dad and I got it wrong! I think I’m more likely to be right as older people have such vivid memories of times past – but it’s jolly hard remembering what happened last evening!!!
    Doesn’t it say somewhere in the Bible “the child is father of the man”? Sorry I’m not a churchgoer so that could be Shakespeare or somesuch, but I do find I’m becoming the child and turning to my children for their guidance and expertise the older I get. Most interesting turn of affairs I find. Not a problem, just glad we brought them up to be nice human beings and they’re able to now advise me in this new world of technology and form-filling etc.
    Your swinging technique, by the way, cannot be faulted – well done you:-)

    I need more wisdom, too. Raising kids is sooooo challenging — at least raising them right and with love and meeting their needs while teaching them self-sufficiency. You’re a great dad!
