    But that's not all I am to my children.

    I am everything under the sun rolled into one. Mother is so much deeper than just giving birth to your children. Being a mother is my greatest accomplishment. Nothing brings me greater joy then knowing my babies love me regardless of my flaws and knowing that I am their mother...

    I Feel for my Daughter In the very early

    morning of New Year's Eve, I woke up and found my 19-year old daughter crying on the phone with her friend. I was surprised and worried about what is going on. Since I had to go out that morning, she just texted me that she will tell me about it when I get home. Later, I...

    Them Crazy Kids

    I once served my kids toasted hot dog rolls for breakfast when I was too tired to make pancakes. This was shortly after my brother and I had a conversation about white trash at Wal-Mart, which our upper-bourgeoisie mentality deemed appropriate to spectate and judge. Later on...

    I'm so tired of being judged by people

    including my husband about my parenting style. I believe kids learn to be trustworthy & independent by being given trust & independence. It does not make me weak or naive. I know my son will let me down & make mistakes. He's human. But me being overly concerned about everything...

    Today is my oldest son's birthday.

    This is the son who was named one of the nation's top ten heroes in 2010. He has been through so much, multiple explosions, having his jaw blown halfway off, his back broken several times, his knees have no cartilage, plus he's had his arm nearly torn off. If you can't figure...

    My youngest son just said to me,

    "mom, I know your really old, but I don't know why you don't have wrinkles yet." Im not sure if I should feel complimented they he noticed I don't have wrinkles, or concerned that he thinks I'm really old.

    20 weeks and 2 days pregnant!

    I am more than half way through this pregnancy:) I can't wait to see my little boy. Mommy loves you more than anything in the world, every time I feel your kicks or little movements it puts a smile on my face, and makes my day 100 times better.

    For years I have thought of my first Mother's

    My younger son was chattering

    as I was putting him to bed, something like "I want to get more Digimon cards, but they don't sell them anymore in stores, because they used to sell them when you were a kid, like a hundred years ago ..." That's when I had to object.

    I believe the best way to teach my daughter is

    "living by example". She watches me closely. Just as I watched my own mother when I was a child. A few things I try to teach her, in my indirect way, that hopefully will impact her as an adult: Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame...

    Teach children by example not advice.

    Give them the tools to have long lasting nurturing relationships. The best gift you could ever give them is your time, not your words.

    Somehow, I dare to say,

    even your child, mine, or hers didn't make it to live with us; I do think that we still deserve the title. There is something, no one talks and knows about, and that is the feeling that finds a girl, settles in her heart and transforms her to a beautiful mom. It is a silent...
