    Single Mothers Have To Be Cool

    I am a single mother of a pre-teen boy. I am totally honest with him (well not totally...I don't share my dirty secrets). We talk openly about things he sees on tv or hears at school. I try to answer his questions about sex and sexual orientation, which is very out there with tv...

    Weekend

    Our house has turned into the weekend, camp out house for all the boys in the area.  As much as I'd like to complain about this, I'm not going to.  It's nice to know where my son is and what he is doing.  Actually, he's never been a problem.  Now, when my...

    My kids have labeled me a "Cool Mom".

    I love that label. I do not let my kids get everything they want, but I do give in to them at times. I am not their friend but their mom. They have never forgotten that either.

    Hmmmmm

    I would like to think that I am a "cool" Mom. I have noticed in the last few days since reading a particular book that spoke of approaching my children in a way that really responds to their own individual needs, Cameron and Colby are in a different place too. They are...

    For years, my kids have called me a cool mom.

    I try to teach my kids between right and wrong. Early in their lives, I have told them I am not their friend but their mother. At times, I discipline them, in various measure, when they will not comply with my wishes and requests. I have told my kids that we can chat about...

    Trying to Be My daughters

    and I have always had open communication. As they were growing up, I have encouraged them to share how their day has been at home and in school. We have a good time together as we happily tease each other. They also proudly announce their successes which we use as an excuse to...

    Been up all night having a 'meaningful'

    conversation with my six month old infant consisting of a bunch of "ba.ba.ba.baaa." Now that she's asleep I can't sleep because if I do considering how extremely tired I am, I might not hear the alarm going off in order to wake my second grader up for school. Which is in about...

    Not Always Easy.

    I am a cool Mom.  Ask any of my kids friends, they will tell you it's true.  The thing is, it's not always easy being a "cool" mom. Since my kids were born, I have always had this thing about being willing to talk to them about anything.  All they have...

    How Can You Tell?

    I wear age appropriate clothing. I can't see What Not to Wear rolling up on me. AFter 35 no micro-minis (no problem particularly with the size of my thighs). Despite knowing I am a MILF I don't try to seduce the teenage boys that come around my daughter and her twin cousins...

    I Try to Be Cool As Ice!

    I like to have my kids friends think Iam a "cool mom". Its cool when your kids's friends think your home is their second home. I always wanted to be the cool happy family. I guess I dream to much! Euh?
