Biggest Fears

What are your biggest fears as a mom? I fear that I will lose my kids in a busy shopping mall or that one of them will run out in front of a car. I fear that I won't raise them to be productive or independent. I fear that they will fail and it will somehow be my fault. After all, I'm sure that's what they'll tell their shrink regardless. ; )

My biggest fear used to be that they will one day grow up and not need me anymore. I know that would mean that I did my job, but it's a conundrum. I think my goal for them now is that they won't need me to help them or give advice when they grow up, but I hope they will always want me to lend a hand or suggestion. I think that determines our success as mothers.
