My children are always babies to me.

Raising children isn't easy. When they were babies, as parents we were worried they won't grow! Later we feared over their education and career. My two elder sons are married, when i need not worried for them anymore. Except i still have one more son who is reaching his thirties soon. When he was a teenager, he had many girlfriends, who kept me worry then. I really didn't understand why so many girls fell for him. They came by numbers until i could not remember their names. I had to make sure, they behaved and not land into any unpleasantness or unexpected happening. Imagine, if adults could not control intimacy, you think young children could! I had to constantly nag and advise my son for befriending those pretty darlings of his. Time flies! Today he is a grown up man, and i thought i need not have to worry over him anymore. Sad to say, i still have worries. Today all his friends are only males, and i have not seen him with any female company. And i wonder why!!! Funny isn't it? Too many girls when he was young, i was afraid and currently he has no girlfriend, i am even more worry.

Moral of the story - I believe all parents love their children, no matter how young or old they are. As long as i live, i will love them as babies.

Food for thought - "We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today" ~Stacia Tauscher
