Miss Independent, #1215



My kids want so badly to be independent.  They want to do what they want to do and when they want to do it.  In their own little ways, they beg me for their freedom regularly.  Really though, despite their efforts – they are still just children.

I know this because at 2:30 in the morning, they still crawl into bed with me when they have a scary dream or come to me immediately for comfort when they get an “Owie.”

I am the first person they go to when there are tears or nerves or absolutely anything that is different from normal.  How lucky they are to always be able to run to Mommy.

It’s hard to give them a balance of independence and prevent them from growing up too fast at the same time.  Parenting is a tough job and a constant challenge, and with all that I do in a day, it’s still my favorite job.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
