Being Friends With Your Kids

Being Friends With Your Kids

I had an absolute ball being Nolan’s mom when he was younger. We had so much fun (silly fun ::: play fun, all of it)! Plus, sweet after school naps on the couch together as he became a young boy…

I still have a ball with him now as he rounds the corner to 19 in a few months (one of the people I always want to hang with here in Paris or anywhere)!

But there’s something also different now…an appreciation I could’ve never anticipated when we took this photo when he was seven…

And that is the depth and uniqueness of relationship we’d grow inside our weekly talks about life, as well as the comfort we feel around one another to do so; to talk about everything under the sun.

It has been said — don’t be friends with your children, but if being someone’s “friend” is creating a unique bond with them through mutual affection and a sharing of and from your heart, I hope all of us become friends with our sons and daughters! (parenting coaches/parenting experts come for me)

Really though — isn’t that exactly what we do with friends ~ talk and talk and feel closer and closer {as friends} as a result?

You can be friends with your family. And your children are not exempt from this truth.

As family, we are also friends.

Mother.

Son.

Can be and are — the best of friends.

I’m still mama, he’s still my son, AND…

AND we are also more!

What do YOU think? Do you think parents can be friends either their kids?

Net net, one thing that’s helped love stay vibrant is creating new things together (moving overseas again is ‘creating new things together’, as is empty-nesting).

Because if purpose is for you individually, it’s definitely for you as a couple. It’s not talked about often, but this is TRUTH.

Why would your wedding or having your kids be the last time you create together!?

Our work as a couple has added much meaning and contentment to our everyday…from prison reform work to speaking at universities about finding what you truly love professionally, to the How Good’s This podcast and LIVEN live streams during 2020 and 2021, to helping people take their passion projects off the back burner of their lives and the Greater Good Parties in San Francisco, LA, New York and Austin over three years, our question [and focus] has always been, ***how do we use our love for great good?***

We keep asking and we keep doing just that.

Expat Adventures

Fluent fun. Expat adventures over the years, grateful every day!

In one city we had the baby, in another the family spoke all the Spanish and in the most recent, we mispronounce words on the daily (and eat all the croissants and baguettes).

What kind of fun are you fluent in?  🙂
