I have missed SO much of your blog. I can't believe it. It's been fantastic to catch up.

I confess that I have no idea where the lines are these days, and I don't know where they were growing up. Maybe it's the raised by wolves/latch key thing.

I do feel that there is a great deal that should not be mentioned in front of children or strangers. But like your tattoo post, I cannot think of a single occasion when we've been out and overheard things that ought not have been said.

The only thing that comes to mind is when I was with my oldest two at the grocery store and a child older than them was screaming at the top of their lungs that they hated their Mother. My kids were mortified. We don't use that word in our house, much less directed at a person.

I love the bubble we are raising our kids in. All too soon they'll be exposed to the "real world", the least I can do is honor their childhoods.
