I have never spent much time thinking about how my kids will be when they grow up.
I do read parenting magazines, look at books, and cruise the internet to find advice and opinions and testimonials when I come across some behaviorial or sleep issues.
I've realized that I never hang on to any of this guidance. We just end up doing what feels natural.
What I can say though, is that both my boys laugh at me sometimes, and smile when I grin at them, and get excited and wave their arms and run up to Shawn when they see him after a long absence.
So however they turn out, I know that they are growing up in a happy home.
It's just too bad they have sleep-deprived parents.
