    Me to my sons: Aren't you forgetting something?

    My older: what's that? Me: To go to bed. It's almost an hour after their usual bedtime. And I decided to gloss over the fact that I too forgot. A parent's privilege: it's not my fault.

    Hi

    I'm a single mum to a 5yr old boy.. I love him so much but I've got to say this is the toughest job I've ever done, it's something that a single person will never understand until it happens to them. I feel physically and emotionally drained most of the time and it has brought...

    I am a mom and I have 6 sons.

    Their ages are from 13 to 25. I am a strict but fair mom when I am disciplining my boys. I believe strongly in spanking and other forms of punishment. It all depends on the age and what my sons have done to warrant such measures of a spanking and other things I could do to...

    My Angel - My Miracle

    When I was 17 years old, I had completely stopped ovulating. My doctor told me that I could give up on the dream of having a child. I was 17 -- I didn't want a child at that moment. I didn't even have a boyfriend. The doctor wasn't sure if the problem would sort itself out -- or...

    My oldest has night terrors.

    It makes me crazy when other people say their child has night terrors as well. While it is possible, I know it's most likely not true because how calm they are about it. A nightmare and a night terror are two completely different things. When a child has a nightmare, they wake...

    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.

    who says if he had kids he would give 15 20 belts across the arse with a wooden spoon or open hand for punishment. I find this totally wrong and disturbing.

    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.

    I love days when the kids are getting along,

    when they walk through the front door after school and I can hear in their voices how much they genuinely love each other and then look out the window to see them playing catch. They're teenagers now so this quaint scene doesn't happen as often as it used to - so am enjoying...

    People ask me all the time.

    "What's being a mom like?" Honestly, it's a lot like being responsible for tiny drunk people who constantly need your attention/ focus every four minutes. Best way I can describe it. Kids are definitely...a handful to say the least. But having them has made my life so much more...

    When I am with them my heart is full. The times I sit still and look at them I see just how fragile life is. I had someone ask me who was my favorite child. I was mortified at such a silly question! The answer is so simple, I love them both the most just different. I really...

    I am in the middle of a divorce from an abuser

    and our kids are treating me different now. I think they are mad at me for not just putting up with the treatment and keeping the ideal family of mom and dad staying together forever. I had to divorce for my own sanity and now I feel like I'm being punished.

    Sure my children may not be here and are in God's kingdom now. But that doesn't mean they've never existed. Being pregnant is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I was quite young when I was pregnant, the first pregnancy I was 16 and the second one, I was 17. I...
