    I'm chasing my little demon monkey

    and tickling her. She stops and very seriously says "Mommy no more tickle my boby (body)!" "Ok I won't tickle you anymore." She looks at me confused, throws her arms up "Ugh! Ok mommy, tickle me!" And runs away

    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 mother of 3. I thought I would be

    married to my soul mate by now, but that never happened. I hate this situation that I've created for myself and my children. Doing things out of order has made my life very hard. All my kids share the same father, I even lost my virginity to him. I thought he was the one but...

    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...

    My son just turned eleven he is my one

    and only and he is my entire world. He is growing up too fast and I miss the times when he was small enough to crawl on my lap and watch cartoons or small enough to snuggle with me as I read him a bedtime story. I miss him being little. I used to think when I was a little girl...

    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...

    I am a mother of two amazing little boys.

    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'm still a mother. No matter what people say.

    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...

    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.
