    I love my 3 year old daughter more

    than words can describe. She is my top priority and I live my life for her. I've learned that being a great mother means taking care of yourself so you can be there for your child. I try my best to get rest and divide responsibilities with my husband. Even though I want to be...

    If there is any accomplishment

    that I would like to be known for in my life is that I have done a good job as a mother. My children's interests and needs come first before anything else. I love my children and I will do anything to make their lives better even if it means making sacrifices.

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone women could take

    just five minutes out of their day to complete this survey. There are only 10 questions. It is about feminism, strong and brave women, heroines and role models. It is for an important assignment so it would be so much help if you could do this for me. Thank you so much! http...

    Until You <3 {this Is Precious All Moms Should Read}

    I never pulled over to stare at horses, I was never willing to give someone else my last bite, I never planned on handling someone else's boogers, I never listened to a song 50 times in a row, I never found rocks on my dryer, I never had to power to heal a wound with my kiss...

    My Kids=My World

    I have been fortunate enough to stay home with and for my children as they are growing up.... I am always here for them, in good times and bad, and am so very proud of the kind, caring individuals they are becoming.

    I found this wonderful link
