Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner ~ What is Your Best Parenting Advice

Kiana, 17 years old
Kiana's birthday cake topper
Marcus, 19 years old

When Marcus would respond, "I don't like you."  our responds have always been "That's fine because we must be doing our job right!" 

What we mean by that is that you aren't ever their friends.  You're their parents.  We're here to protect, guide and love them.  That doesn't mean that we don't love having fun and laughing with them.

I also wanted to take the time to thank the Heavenly Father for binging Kiana into our lives.  We enjoyed having her be a part of the family for almost a year.  Charles and I fell in love of her within days of her living with us.  She was the daughter we never had.  And I'm so glad that we still chat from time to time.
