    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 kids have their first swim meet today.

    I'm a really good sports mom - I leave the coaching to the coaches and all they hear me say is: "I love watching you. Your body looks so strong." Evidently the meets can take between 4-5 hours. All the families set up shade tents or tents on the side of the pool and hang out...

    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...

    Not too good of one today.

    I have felt funky since I woke up so the TV has been entertaining my child a good bit of the day. Well that and his toys. According to the pediatrician no tv until after 2 years old, but my child is beyond advanced and this doesn't happen often.

    I am. What else to say?

    I do my best - as nearly every mother. Sometimes I fail as well. I'm not a perfect mother. They don't exist.

    I am a mother of a 14 year old daughter

    who has involved herself with "that boy" I've given a chance to prove he was not his reputation....seeing his character with my own eyes has lead to my daughters dissappear. Of course she hates me now that I've intervened.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Being a mother means having to say no.

    A lot. No, you can't have another cookie. No, you can't turn left when the light is red. No, you have to wait since you passed the 2 entrances. No, you do not drive between gas pumps like you're downhill slalom. No, you can't go straight when you're in the left turn only lane...

    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...

    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.

    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.
