Also the adults in the house are to be equal regardless of who raises the kids and who brings home the money. Everyones emotional health, spiritual health, and physical health are equally important.

Each time our children graduate from one stage to another i.e. crawling - walking, preschool - school, highschool - graduation we as parents are excited and a little sad as well.
