Growing Up

Seems to me this is the most grown up thing I have had to do - becoming the wiser adult for my own parent.  Some people call it role reversal, but I don't feel it is exactly that. I am a parent and have raised my child, but this is very different.  I have to stop being the child in this relationship - a lifelong pattern - and constantly struggle with the back and forth of stepping in and taking over, and backing off and just be "part of the family"
