I enjoyed every part of my childrens life, from baby to adult it has been great. When you invest time into your children and are in tune with their wants, needs and desires you can have a good relationship that allows for enjoyment. I did not have to worry about them when they were out of my view, they went to college, and are working in their career field.
They made some mistakes i am sure, but with God first, family and their loving guidance they turned out pretty good. I say just enjoy them from the beginning to the end, and you will have memories forever
