The older I get, the smarter my parents are

Isn’t it funny that you realize more and more how smart your parents are as you age? When you’re Liv’s age,
which is 13 TODAY!!!!!!, you think you know it all and your parents are so clueless. Then in your 20’s, you really think you have it figured out. You hit your thirties and you realize you didn’t know diddly squat back then and then in your 40’s, you realize you still had a lot to learn in your thirties. There are SO many sayings and cliches I love. “Too late smart,” is just one of them. So many times I wish I knew back then what I know now. The different choices I would have made. The things I would have coped with better. If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that we’ve had some issues with a certain sister-in-law. Well after years of witnessing her behavior, it just dawned on me yesterday that she has spent the last 30 years trying to make everyone in Tim’s family hate each other but like her. Of course, I saw part of this all along, but the whole picture just became crystal clear to me this past weekend. She has tried to pit everyone against each other so she could be everyone’s one and only “friend”.
