When you were a kid, did you think you were smarter than your mom? And now, do your kids think they’re smarter than you? Most days, Chad thinks I’m the dumbest human to ever walk the earth and on the days he doesn’t think that, he would never tell me.
As a teen and young adult, I’m sure I thought I was smarter than my parents but the one thing my mom did that drove me nuts was that she never wanted to travel. I know what you’re saying . . Judy’s a chip off the old block! Back when I was younger, mom always said I had gasoline in my blood because I wanted to go, go, go. I didn’t care where or for how long but I loved going.
Mom would say that we didn’t go on vacations much because she only liked to sleep in her own bed. I always thought that was the craziest thing I’d ever heard. A bed is a bed . . lay your head on the pillow and go to sleep. I can remember just rolling my eyes when mom would say she couldn’t sleep except in her own bed.
After 5 nights in the hotel and 13 hours in the car today, sleeping in my own bed tonight is going to feel like heaven! After all these years . . mom was right. Sleeping in my own bed is all I want to do . . forever!
