    My children are overwhelming me.

    They demand my attention virtually every waking hour and several sleeping hours, too. They are twins and are physically large. They talk constantly. They make constant messes, eat constantly, and consume endless resources. My life feels like an endless stream of demands and...

    I really hope that everyone had a nice Mother's

    Day, because I sure didn't. :-( I really wanted a day that I could call my own, but my husband really wanted to make sure that we visited his mother because, as he put it, didn't want her to be by herself on Mother's Day. We took her to lunch and dropped her off, but I wish...

    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.

    that I have done in my life, including both my successes and failures, I am most proud of being a Mother. I have two wonderful teenagers, a daughter and a son, who are the world to me.

    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.

    The worse Mother's Day of my life.

    I'm suppose to be celebrating this day with my daughter. Now I'm sitting here miserable and taking abuse from family. Of all days, why do I have to feel like the world would be better off without me, because of the way they treat me?

    Does your kids, sometimes use sayings

    or terms wrong, when they mean to say something else. For example, if they said, "feeding me up" when they actually mean, "chewing me up" or "eating me up"?When their loved ones give them kisses or get dog licks. You realize what they are trying to say. After you ask them, what...

    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...

    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...
