    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.

    My 9 year old just drew a smiley face on my 7

    year old's head. In permanent marker. And the 7 year old has her First Communion on Saturday. Imma pat myself on the back for letting them figure out how to fix it and not jacking them both up.

    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...

    Hey guys, My husband

    and I have quite a story about how our family came to be. He got pregnant with his ex in 2010. He was never told she was pregnant. He was told he had a son 2 weeks after his birth. He stepped up to the plate, furnished his apartment for the baby and tried his best to make it...

    Hey moms, I have a problem.

    ..I guess. My son is 11 months and a few days. Since a bit more than a week he keeps waking up around 1AM-4AM. Right now I am tired and a bit cranky because I haven't had a proper sleep in days...Is this behaviour normal? I check his temperature, diaper, if he is hungry but it...

    People need to know the difference between

    "gold digger" and "mother". My main priority is my kids and if there is a man that will help them (especially financially) then I will give my kids that. I will of course let him know the meaning of the relationship but this is a sacrifice, not a personal endeavor.

    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...

    I'm so in love with my daughter

    but she is growing up too fast for me. She's 9 and wants to be independent and I can't cut the cord. All she tells me is "I'm not a baby anymore". I'm a smother!! I just want to hug and kiss on her so she know how much I love her. I think I need to have another baby

    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...

    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 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.

    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.
