Growing Pains

We made it through the diapers
Midnight feedings have come and gone
Survived the childhood illnesses
Learned that off usually means on

We were forced to let go a little
As the time for school began
It was not an easy thing to do
Nor was learning our studies again

We managed the teenage tantrums
Tried to offset the pressure of peers
Mended a broken heart or two
Were the comfort that dried the tears

Then we thought the trials were over
That easier times were on the way
High school was done and college began
But the trials were determined to stay

We came to the obvious conclusion
That as long as we are “mom and dad”
No matter how much time passes by
There will be good times as well as bad
