August 11th National Son’s And Daughter’s Day

No it’s not their birthdays, unless their birthday happens to be today, this is a day to celebrate that you have a son or daughter, or both, just because they are there. At first your children need you because well, someone has to take care of them, then they resent you because, well… someone has to take care of them. Then the day comes when hopefully, your children just want to spend time with you, not because you are cool (because we all know you aren’t) but just… because. Today is your chance to honor them for who they are, who they will be or even who they might become. Expect them to be different than you, and that may be a good thing.

How to celebrate – Take your children to lunch. Save photos of your children as they grow. Find some common interest to share with you children.
