    I'm struggling with being a single mother.

    I left my child's father when I was pregnant and I had to move in with my mom. I have no car but I have a decent job. I have no friends and no support. My family doesn't listen to me they just run over me. I feel so very alone. I'm struggling with depression and anxiety I've...

    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...

    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 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

    My mother wanted a baby

    when she was 41 years old and she could! Believe me, it was a miracle! Now, a few years later, I´m so happy for her. Wanna try? Look this:

    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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'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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
