|I don't miss the plastic slipcovers though ...|
It's funny, but the only thing that turned out like I dreamed was the number of children I would have. I always wanted 3 girls and that is exactly what the Lord sent me.
What I didn't dream about back in those days were the things no kid has any concept about in grown-up life: bills, maintenance, insurance, taxes and how challenging it is to make a marriage work and raise children!
Too bad I wasted so much time dreaming about the future instead of enjoying the wonderful care-free existence of my childhood.
Looking back, I think the thing I miss most about living at home with my parents is that they were in charge ... and I was not!
