Stop the Bragging Already!

So this weekend I was at a party.  I was sitting there with a bunch of friends listening to them all brag  how great their kids are and how popular, yadda, yadda.  I just sat there.

 Don't get me wrong - I love my kids to death and am proud of them - but I sooo know that they are not perfect.  They have made mistakes and will continue too and I am happy about that.  By making mistakes you grow as a person.

 These parents who continue to think their kids aren't drinking or having sex or going to parties are living in a dream world.  Get over yourselves.  Like my husband says " High School doesn't matter.  College does because it  propels you to be successful and find out who you are".

  And to those parents - it is your kid's successes and journey, not yours.  I am sooooo glad my kids are late bloomers and when they go to their high school reunions, they will be the built handsome men and not the fat balding ones.
