When I think about being a parent, I think about giving my all. Is there something wrong with someone when they can't give more than what is considered a guideline?
Maybe that is just me.
Maybe I was meant to be a parent.
Maybe I enjoy being a parent.
Maybe I am able to sacrifice in order to be a parent.
May I was just ready to be a parent.
Maybe I have "grown up" to be a parent.
All I know is that I could not imagine...
one day going by without speaking to my son,
an evening of not reading stories to him at night as well as tucking him in,
not picking him up from school/daycare,
not being able to take part in hearing about the excitement in his day, or
missing out on him participating in a sport he loves whether it be practice or a game.
The bare minimum. Is that all you have?
