Keeping up

A Bollywood superstar mentioned his experience with his children – the ones who are growing up won’t talk, and the bubbly youngster all of five years old won’t listen.

“I am your mother, not your friend, but will be there for you when you need me.” I was not sure if the progeny would turn back to come and seek help from a reliable pole, or turn to someone who is walking the distance with them.

The caterpillars are shedding their exterior to blossom into butterflies. Are you shedding yours just to keep up with them?
