Trusting the Subconscious

Out of one of my 10 minutes 'stream of consciousness' sessions I captured a comment about how awesome it is that our kids have become our friends.  At 27, 24, 20, and 14 they're quite a pleasure and even though ours didn't give us much grief at all, I reflected on the challenges of parenting and how being able to sit around with your young adults and treat them as friends is pretty cool.  That's what I've shared.  Recording is a little 'raw' I'm afraid.  :)

Here is the song  http://soundcloud.com/roy-sunstrum/when-our-kids-become-our and here are the lyrics.

When Our Kids Become our Friends

Little boys they pull our strings and rock our very sanity
Why can't we harness just a fraction of that energy…Boy oh boy!
They grow to be the party crowd mom lays awake at night and thinks
Of toys and trains baseball bats manhood 'round the bend…Boy oh boy!

In life we all have many hills to climb
So proud of who we've brought about in time
With bumps and scrapes at recess
Years and years of progress
Our work is paying off
When our kids become our friends

Little girls they dress up sweet paint their nails and laugh out loud
They grow to see there's more to life than mirrors in the hall…Oh my girl!
Young ladies don't obey all the rules Dad builds a shield around his little girl
Protect her lord when we let go her wings will spread to soar…Oh my girl!

In life we all have many hills to climb
So proud of who we've brought about in time
With bumps and scrapes at recess
Years and years of progress
Our work is paying off
When our kids become our friends

Young adults now they make us proud
We see them rise up to the test
Pass me a beer and don't spill your champagne

In life we all have many hills to climb
So proud of who we've brought about in time
With bumps and scrapes at recess
Years and years of progress
Our work is paying off
When our kids become our friends


You know it's paying off
When our kid become our friends
