Just a brief note to say this: if you think you've successfully run away from your neuroses –that you've effectively dusted them, left them for dead and will never come to realize any of those old crippling fears again– then I strongly caution you against being a parent.
Parenthood: like therapy but free and way more painful on occasion.
AS my kids got older, I realized that all the things that I really got upset about in their personalities and actions were the very things I needed to work on the most myself… talk about humbling!
LOL…I can hardly wait, my dear. The fortune that I spend on therapy? It’ll be just as expensive, but I’ll have this amazing little being to keep me going.
