For Posterity's Sake

What inspired me to do the asking, or the recording, let alone the publishing here I'll never know. But dag gone if his answers didn't get me thinking more about my parenting. Maybe that's the problem--I spend too much time thinking about it, and not enough time improving on it.

I had to hold my breath a bit as I read...brave Mama to ask those questions. But isn't the risk worth the reward--the love, the way kids talk straight without dodging anything...
