"Bringing up a family should be an adventure, not an anxious discipline in which everybody is constantly graded for performance." - (Milton R. Saperstein) ------------
Bringing up a family is an adventure yes but certainly it's not a joy ride. It's serious business. Imagine responsible for individuals brought to ...your care and nurturing until they are ripe to be on their own and tackle life at their own terms. Through that whole process you cry, sigh, laugh, fidget, sizzle with temper, tremble in fear, sulk in frustration, and everything else. And come the day that you see them off. But it does not stop there. Because all of their successes and failures are too brought back to your plate. To make you either smile or cry or despair and... do the same job all over again. That's more adventure than you could ever ask for!
