It really is trickier than it seems sometimes.

It's the weekend, you know, the one if you forget, you will probably get dirty looks and sighs of disappointment from the women you love. (By the way, the cute homemade coupon books that you throw together lose their value after you hit the age of anything-teen).
These are three of my very favorite people and sometimes, when I get all writerly and frustrated that I can't get just five minutes to attempt a brilliant thought, I need to take a step back and realize, in just 11 short years, all three of them will have graduated high school and be moving on with their lives and needing a little less of mine.
I need to remember that this is truly my greatest creation, my greatest accomplishment and they deserve my greatest attention.
That doesn't mean they need it all, all the time. Balance works both ways. But I need to remember not to put the blinders on so often that they are out of my point of view.
