It helps to have a little geography in between, Dawn. Our two children with families of their own live in Atlanta, GA. They've also been parents for a long while. One son's been married for 15 years, so they have the "what the heck do I do, mom" part figured out when it comes to their children. I'm just waiting for one of them to have a "teen." Now, THAT will be interesting.
