Treats to fix mom on Mother’s Day

May 5, 2013
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER ( , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

May, already! This is the month the school kids have been waiting for since the Christmas holidays were over. Most of them have, anyway. It is the month of excitement for the seniors as it means the most important decisions of their lives so far. Do I go to further schooling or to some kind of training or the military or get a job right away if I can or latch onto some boy whose parents are rich and get married? Those of us well past this age know right away which of those are good and which is the worst thing they can do, but in that high school mind, it all looks promising. If they see Mom bringing in some big, empty boxes, they may get the idea that she is going to turn their bedroom into her craft room and they are out. This is a painful time for those decisions for both child and parent. We have raised them to be independent, but when the time comes for that decision on their part, it hits us between the eyes and most parents are not really ready for that "empty nest". It painfully reminds us that the years are going by at a much too fast speed.
