I sometimes wonder...

As a parent I sometimes wonder if I make the right decisions. "Do I let him go to that party even though it's alcohol & girls there, Was it the right thing to support his choice in school, Do I give him too much money or waaay too little, Did I make a huge mistake when I let go of the one guy that truly treated Ravn as his own all those years ago, Do I lecture him too much or not often enough? Time will show I guess... 
All I do know is that he told me straight out about the alcohol at the party & I've always been open about the topic of sex & its consequences, He discusses his school situation with me, He shakes his head & says he doesn't deserve all the things I give him (...& I disagree & say that it has nothing to do with what he do, but with who he is...& I don't ever need a reason to give him something-ever.), & I know I can't change the past but I can make sure Ravn learns from my (fear aka) experiences, We talk with each other instead of to each other so I can't really call it lecturing can I... So I guess that as long as our communication sluices are open & I get to see another day, there's always time to make things right...
All you can do is love them, teach them, then watch them set their own stamp on this world.
So to all you women & men out there raising kids, especially on your own - I salute you. :) Damn hard work at times, but most rewarding don't you think? ;)

Well, that's my rant for the evening... I'm off to make some muffins for tomorrow & watch a movie.
