Default Enjoy Them While You Can

In looking at CQ's pictures from her recent cruise with her son and Dave The Waves frequent pictures of his boys on their cruises, it reminds me of how great a cruise is to bond and spend time with your child, when you are a single or divorced parent.

I still remember taking my son on cruises and how over the years it help us catch up and have fun both together and yet gave space to do our thing..even when he was small, he would be busy all day but find "a minute" to report in..then of course when he was older just before he went to the Air Force Academy, he spend all of his time with the young ladies onboard..he had a much better time then I did and yet it was an activity we could plan together between the summers

enjoy the time my friends, they grow up so quickly and start their own families but we are now planning a Disney cruise for my grandson who will turn 7 in December..the good news is my son's paying for his Dad...that's progress
