169. And there ya go...
People hawk themselves as "good parents" all the time. I've seen it from people who never gave two shits about their kids. They honestly thought they were parents.

If someone were to ask me today what kind of parent I was, I would have to truthfully say that I wasn't as good as I could have been. I did my best with what I knew at the time. I was very young. Knowing what I do now, I would give so much to be able to go back and change many things. Getting older means you should be able to learn from your mistakes.

I have apologized to my kids, and because they're parents themselves, they understand.

So. I was not what I would call a great mom. But I did my best.
