My husband's cousin is here with us for vacation but before he came, his mom informed us of his vacation plans first. I remember her telling my husband's mom before that this cousin of him doesn't have any vices. We were actually surprised to know that he smokes and he also drinks alcohol now that he's here for vacation. He's just an occasional alcoholic beverage drinker but he does smoke heavily. As a parent, this opens my eyes to the fact that even if we think we know our children, when they don't live with us anymore and the communication is no longer that constant and open, changes could happen. Just when we think we still know our kids the way we used to, the truth is that we become strangers by the day as we turn further away from each other.
