    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 5 grown ups.

    5 different attitudes that a mom will adjust and nurture. Being a mother is not easy but very fulfilling when you see your children growing up with good values.

    The Perfect Mother??

    Long time ago a friend of mine came to visit me, all my babies were crying and I was still very calm managing the situation, then she said to me: „You do not look like a mother, you look peaceful, not tired and you do not have food spots on your clothes…” Is...

    and very independent, mature, kind of needs her space ... my boys are 4 (almost 5), 3 and 1 --- we have a 3 bedroom house. The bedrooms are all very big, thankfully. But my question is - would you have the 7 year old girl and 5 year old boy share a room for now or give the...

    I do have kids. 3 altogether.

    I have two living, my first one passed on. I will always miss you Angel. I love all of my kids with an equal love. I can honestly say I would do anything for them. I am grateful to God for them and for the loving husband who blessed me so much and continues to do so everyday.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Them Crazy Kids

    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.

    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...
