Upto 10..... Its really OKAY!!
Every time I see that I missed a call from one of my parents….. it is never A call. It is always 2 or 3 or 5 or sometimes even more!!! Like everybody I have always wondered WHY do my parents always have to do that. Today I just decide to wear their hat and figure out what they must be thinking J
Call 1: Ah! Let me talk to my daughter/son and see how they are doing.
Call 2: Looks like she’s busy. Let me try one more time just in case…
Call 3: Just dial again while thinking what time of the day would it be in her part of the world.
Call 4: a) Saturday mornings are off from work, She must not be getting ready for work of course!
b) It’s a weekend evening, I hope my child is not working too hard!
Call 5: a) Is she actually still sleeping????
b) Is she out again! Let me find out where and with whom!
Call 6: OMG this girl! Never has time when I want to talk.
Call 7: Let me tell her she needs to keep in touch! Her parents still love her a lot.
Call 8: I am going to tell her right now that she can call me whenever she wants.
I DON’T CARE.
Call 9: Oh Dear! I just really really hope she and everyone in the family is OKAY!
Call 10: Let me try just one last time, then I’ll just pray she’s safe and happy J
Parenting sure is a roller coaster ride!! After a good laugh, I think my parents are really nice people and I am lucky to have them! Now I say… up to 10.. its OKAY!!
I hope my kids will think the same when I go through my phase of insanity!
