It doesn't matter that your kidlets are grown up:
- C is a competent, capable SAHM with four little kidlets of her own;
- While I once patrolled the halls at night checking on all the kidlets sleeping safely in their little beds, now S, a police officer, is on the prowl out there making the world safe for me to sleep in;
- D, mom of two, is halfway acroxx the country in Kansas of all places, making the most of what comes and the least of what goes;
- And halfway acroxx the country in another direction, M is becoming a soldier who will have my back on another front.
And it was while I wandered around the house last night, talking on my cordless phone to one of the dd's, that I had my latest epiphany: Phones may have become cordless, but mothers never will.
