Little kids — cuddly, sociable, magical, fascinated, delightful, captivating, excitable, giggly, carefree, curious, exuberant, spontaneous, eager, loving.
Teenagers (not so much any of the above or below) — persnickety, omnipotent, oversensitive, quarrelsome.
Adult children — passionate, patient, observant, pensive, reasonable, loving and lovable, respectful, sensible, sincere, bubbly, affectionate, hospitable, accepting, relaxed, familiar.
And before anyone should take fault with my generalizations, I am aware that these descriptions do not pertain to everyone. One could assume I am describing my own family perhaps — to which I will neither agree nor disagree.
All I can say is, I had the most delightful outing yesterday with three of my adult daughters. Thank you for transforming into such lovely, delightful young ladies. I am so proud of you … Deidra, Mariah and Brianna.
