Pearl 28 – Parenting

 

I think we’ve done OK,
As parents I mean
The kids are grown and seem
To be quite normal!
Despite a lack of skills at the start,
We took them to heart
And did our best,
And the rest,
As they say, is history.
If we’d had one more
We might have known better,
Would have followed the letter
More closely,
But it’s unlikely to happen
Without immaculate conception!
So stop and give thanks
For the small mistakes
That allowed us to learn
To face issues in turn,
To raise our children
Into the delightful young adults
They’ve become.
