    I'm a "Parent Emeritus". No more face pressed to the glass looking in from the outside.

    Daughter is 18 today!:D


    I just dawned on me, I'm also 18 years older. :sick::surprise:

    Great, I miss-spelled "qualify" and I can't figure out how to edit, or if I can even edit it at all.

    Good grief!:ashamed:

    LOL...welcome. I dont think we can edit the titles anymore. I miss that option. Happy birthday to your little girl. Now you can countdown to the early 20's when they gain some semblance of sense.

    Congratulations and welcome to our PE forum :D

    My difficult child is 22 and I am still waiting for her to develop that semblance of sense that Janet mentioned.


    by the way, I edited the thread title for you. Unfortunately this software doesn't allow user access to the thread title edit function, but if you send me a pm I'd be happy to help with that anytime.

    I loved reading this. How dear!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter!!!


    No. This is not true.

    One of the main differences in the PE forum versus the other forums is that our kids get older but we DO NOT! This is very important.

    It's our story and we're sticking to it.

    Welcome to the family. :)

    Hugs,
    Suz

    Ya know...
    I've lost weight, am eating healthier and exercising...
    in some ways I look younger now than in years past.

    So....there you go.

    Lifestyle choices... healthy thought processes...make a BIG difference.

    When our kids are 18, hmmmm...time for them to "take the bull by the horns."

    Dazed and Confused....> Steady and Focused

    Happy birthday to your daughter. Congrats! It's probably time to start easing off and looking at things differently! Have fun! Welcome!

    Hey, congrats! And Happy Birthday to your difficult child!

    I love Suz's analysis of our ages relative to our difficult children. I'll take that story and run with it too! And I fully intend to start looking younger ... letting the lowered stress hormone levels and better sleep and lack of constant hostile conflict and gut-tearing anxiety smooth away my wrinkles and magically take pounds off! :smile:

    Or at least, take time now to eat better and do what I can to exercise ... :D
