I have really been enjoying my son lately.

We started re-connecting during November of last year after we had been out of contact with each other for a year and a half. Boy oh boy…tough love with an unreasonable teenager/young adult can be a real relationship killer.

Thankfully…he matured a lot in that year and a half…went into business with someone successfully…and embarked on a romance which is still going strong.

My son and I usually meet at least a couple of times of month to have dinner and catch up on each other’s lives. And let me tell you…he is such a gentleman! He always insists on picking up the check…and opening doors for me. Yep…I’m thinking someone raised him just right.

Anyway…I have to say my son is having the time of his life right now...and I’m so happy for him! Because when I was his age…I was busy raising him all by myself…instead of out having fun with my friends.

During any given dinner…some of the stories he tells me actually shock me because my son can be brutally honest without any inhibitions. Sometimes I will just look at him…shake my head...and say, "Son waaaaaaaaaaaay too much information!" He just laughs and thoroughly enjoys my reaction. Secretly…I do too because it’s better than not talking to him at all.

Yes…somewhere along the way…we’ve evolved from parent and child…to good friends. So far…it’s a nice fit. In fact…I’m finding out just how much I’m really enjoying my adult relationship with my son.

How about you peeps…have you had the opportunity to reconnect with your children as adults?

What do you like to do together…and what have some of your experiences been?

I can't answer this one yet.

On the other hand, I'm quite blunt when I speak to my own parents, lmao!

Yep, and it kind of makes the hell on earth in her teens worthwhile. However I know many people my age whose kids were losers and undesirables in their teens and still are in their forties They always will be I suspect.

KK that is awesome that you have that type of closeness with your son....I wish I could say the same about my daughter....She's 34 and I'm still waiting for her to grow up and stop blaming me for all her disappointments in life. I broke communication with her two years ago, better to not tallk than to fight and end up hating each other. I have hope that someday she will see the light and brush that chip off her shoulder! I guess there's no guarantees and just because they are our children it doesn't mean we will see eye to eye.

I LOVE my relationships I have with both of my daughters, fulfilling beyond imagining. I also have a great relationship with my Mom too, honest and real...

Hmm I can't really say, Ivory and I have the same relationship we've always had except that she expects to get her way more often.. doesn't always happen that way.. but she expects it :D. I'll tell ya if and when I get to see the two I haven't seen in 9 years.

My daughter and I have always had a great daughter/parent relationship, even when I moved out of state to Mobile, AL for 7 years- we kept in contact frequently and she would come down to visit during the summer for a couple weeks and we would travel around the area! Her going back home was really tough on both of us!

Today though, we continue to have a close relationship and I get to have a close relationship with my grand kids!

I think that is so awesome that you and your son have such a wonderful relationship with each other. Not too many parents can honestly say that they do.

How about you peeps…have you had the opportunity to reconnect with your children as adults? Sadly I haven't had the kind of adult relationship that a father and daughter normally has. She's still going through some growing pains, along with some rough times. She can be her own worst enemy a lot of the times, but I will say that she honestly tries to make something out of herself. I do try to be there for her, but I know that when I am there for her, she tries to take full advantage of me which I will not allow.

What do you like to do together…and what have some of your experiences been?We have gone out to dinner a few times over the past 4 years. It hasn't been a whole lot, especially now since she's raising 4 kids today. Her and her b/f have so much going on in their lives raising their kids together that both would be very lucky to get a night out at the movies with each other.

I am happy for you Kit!

I just feel sorry for the parents whose kids don't come around. Every jerk, every asshole, every bitch, every murderer, every serial rapist was once some mother's little bundle of joy.

We never disconnected

Only way I can answer this is to say I've gone from being a brat teenager to totally appreciating the friendship I have with my Mom. She's the world to me, and to know she still loves me even after some of the stupid stunts I pulled in my younger and dumber years, it's great.
