A New Year

This time next week I'll be a mother-in-law.

This time next week I'll still be a mother of three, but my responsibility to one will vastly change.

This time next week I'll need to find something else to look forward to.

Well when a woman marries she leaves her home. She clings to her husband. My parenting becomes a mute point. Only when advice is sought will it be given. A listening ear will be the first response from my end.

Kalie is getting married. We are thrilled and can't be any more pleased with the whole process, the planning, the ideas and the implementation.

It's gona be a great party.

Since mid-August, when we were celebrating my brother's wedding to Sonsoles, our sights have had the future to contend with. With the mention of Paul and Sonsoles I am reminded that we do have the birth of little Pablo or Pablita to look forward to...but the birth will take place in the Canary Islands and thus we will enjoy the birth through pictures and stories on Facebook.

I know I am just being reflective or sentimental. But I think as the mother-of-the-bride I am allowed.

You are definitely allowed to be sentimental. But your parenting will hardly become mute or moot. Your parenting goes with her into her marriage and into their parenting when the time comes. You get to observe the result of all those years of parenting. And you'll love every minute.

Thanks Sherry....and for the word correction. I knew it wasn't mute but couldn't think of moot. :) said...

I love that picture of these two! I'm glad that you have another addition to your family.
