What a relief! My daughter finally called me. She’s been upset with me since Friday night and hadn’t responded to texts or calls. She’s all of 24, but living on the West Coast so I can’t just go see her.
I wasn’t worried about her safety, just wanted to know that she wasn’t holding a grudge. She still might be, but she had a problem and who do you call but your mom, even if there’s nothing she can do because she’s 1000’s of miles away!
Isn’t it funny how once a mom, always a mom? You don’t grow out of the job. Course in many ways it does get easier. No more diaper bags and temper tantrums. In other ways, it gets more complicated. At least Mother’s Day isn’t too far away.
