The end of summer is almost here and suddenly we have two 3rd graders and one 6th grader. This school year and summer has been one of spreading wings and learning to fly. I have learnt that perhaps I don’t always know best and I need to take cues from my kids. They are no longer my babies, but independent, smart and intelligent children, who are capable of making their own decisions about many things, as my older one constantly says ; trust me. This means I have more time and fewer excuses to not do what I am always saying I want to do. Now is the time to put my money where my mouth is and just do it.
