Now that Austin is 12, I worry more about him. I worry that he won't make it in the real world. Keep in mind that he has some significant learning disablilities. I worry more now than I used to. I feel like time is running out. Anyhow, do you worry that you are running out of time?

I worry about each of my kids everyday.....I Pray for them daily! I Pray that they stay safe ,healthy & happy! It is harder when they are out on there own. I Thank GOD my kids are doing so well in their lives! But, of course, I still worry about them!
That is why we talk on the phone alot when we do not see each other......

Glad to know I am not the only worrier. I sent you a PM about dyslexia. I'd love your input.

I am glad your kids are doing so well in their lives. That is wonderful. Moms probably never stop worrying.

None of our kids have a learning disability, so I don't worry about them in that way. I do worry because a couple of them just don't get it. It seems the common sense factor is not there, and I worry about that. I am raising kids to be adults and it really bugs me that they just don't get some things.

Its a Mom's job to worry about their children. I don't worry as much as I do wonder. I wonder what she will become in life, what kind of mother she will be, what kind of wife she will be and now most importantly what kind of sister she will be.

I'm constantly thinking about those things. Sometimes I just sit back and watch her while she's doing homework, watching tv, talking on the phone, talking with me and I wonder if I did everything right in raising her. There are still so many things I want to do with her and I just pray that we both have enough time.
