Births, Marriages and Deaths are the Dates We Want.
This week my niece and nephew-in-law joined the best club of all. They became parents. They can now sit at the cool table in the middle school lunch room, forever. Wow, the first great-grandchild on this side of the family.
My best advice, watch everyone around you parenting and copy what works, avoid what doesn’t work, even if it’s inadvertent. For example, growing up we did not have a ton of extra disposable income, so we did not have soda in the house. It was a waste of money. As a bunch, my siblings and I all have pretty good teeth. I copied that. Parenting is all about adjusting.
Genealogists deal with events all the time, births, marriages and deaths are the top three. Sometimes we forget each of those events is also a life changing event for someone. This week, I am remembering, relishing and celebrating a life changing event. Welcome to the world, my great-nephew, James!
