blog crazy - but good quote!

so - the other day I blogged about my dilema with my daughter.  About revealing or concealing my addiction to her. 

and today I read this (on a website that's supposed to be humorous):

My kids don't know my baggage...to tell them might destroy them.  Not telling them means they really don't know me.

That sums it up for me.

Oh Laura Lynne-I meant to comment on that post but forgot. I say, talk about it with her. I do with my daughter and let her know I have big problems with food. We cook healthy and so does she (she's 26 and lives with her boyfriend) but picked up a lot of healthy stuff. She is bigger than most but she tells me it doesn't bother her. Maybe get out and do something active together.

I really feel for you. Kids didn't come with a manual but you know yourself and you know your daughter. I found being open about things and always being there to talk about ANYTHING worked the best. Good luck. You will do great.

Sandy - it's so true! I'm lucky, my relationship with my daughter is getting better and better. I hope it continues. Opening myself up to her makes me question if that will happen. But I can only do my best!

I hope you will find a way to reach out to your daughter.

I have three boys, so it is very very different it seems.
