Analyzing parenthood

-A A +A

I was sweeping my house today.  Since it is not the most mind-bending of tasks I got to thinking.  I started thinking about me as a parent and how I got to be here. OK.  I know HOW I got to be a parent, but the kind of parent that I am.  
 Then I started wondering what makes any of us the kind of parents that we are.  When I am out with my friends who are also parents we talk about parenty stuff.   It seems that long runs lend themselves to certain parenting confessions.
 Like, yeah, I let my kid sleep in my bed.  I gave my kids cereal for dinner last night.  My kids know SpongeBob’s middle name.  Then I think about how my parents parented.  I did not watch TV while eating --  ever.
  OK, except for the one time when dinner started late and I was going to miss the Donny and Marie Show and I started crying, then parents let me watch.  But I remember them being dumbfounded by my tears.  I don’t even remember what my parent’s bedroom looked like. And I ate everything on my plate even if it meant swallowing it whole with a big gulp of milk.
