I, Megan, Born of NORMAL Parents

Oh my goodness. I have never been so grateful for reasonable parents until this week. I knew there were some crazy ones out there, but I am SO grateful that mine are not some of them. They don't hover over my shoulder, they were reasonable when I was behind on school work, and they understood that having friends and being invited to do things was a GOOD THING. They never said I couldn't do things just for the sake of saying no, and they listened to me if I had something to say. So thank you, Mom and Dad, for being normal, reasonable, understanding, and caring. Maybe you didn't completely forget what it's like to be a young adult after all. :)

Dad, thank you for having interviews with me once a month, and taking me out on dates. Those were so fun. Thanks for letting me pick the radio station sometimes, even if you weren't a fan. Thanks for helping me with my math homework. Thanks for teaching me how important the scriptures are.

Mom, thanks for listening to me chatter even when it had nothing to do with either of us. Thanks for putting up with all my drama. Thanks for being reasonable about movies or books that weren't so great for me. Thanks for helping me learn how to be a good friend.

Thanks for being great parents.
