Reminds me of "Cat's In The Cradle" by Harry Chapin. Suppose I am dating myself. Wait a minute- this is a retirement forum - you know that song!

+1 Yes, DH and I also tried and tried; but DS is so busy working and building an "adult life" that we sometimes wonder if all we taught was "work ethic."

Nonetheless, many thanks to the OP. Those are important thoughts!
