I think it is sad that only my children know what I mean when I say, "What's the magic word?" All their friends look at me like I'm insane. It's called manners - use them and teach them to your children.
My mom always told me, while you are growing up I am your parent, when you are grown I will be your friend. I am a grown woman and my mother is my best friend. Love you mom thanks for always being a GREAT parent
