Notice I wrote "Like."
It goes without saying that we're all supposed to love our offspring... but, "like?"
Let's be honest; not every parent "likes" his or her child. And as all parents know... this usually cuts both ways at times... sometimes for years at a time.
Hey... just keepin' it real!
Anyway... here's an excerpt from an email I received from my daughter the other day:
"Yesterday we had NYU lecture again. It was on Plato and Utopia. It was good and they give us free dinner with yummy tea. It is such a nice event."
She's talking about NYU-Abu Dhabi. And the "we" is her and her husband.
Both of the "kids" are intellectually curious. I LIKE THAT! Indeed... I LOVE THAT!
It's good to be proud of one's child... of one's children. (And it's GOOD to have a son-in-law one RESPECTS as well as loves "as a son.")
