    I Am A Single Mum

    I am a Mum. I think I suffer from some kind of emotional issues. I dont want to be a mother anymore. I know many will say I dont deserve my two. I am impatiant & unkind to them a lot. I do have my moments but I feel they are to far and inbetween. I worry about them so much and...

    I am definitely a proud parent also,

    and I guess a single parent as well. My sons were both over 18 when their dad and I split up, but I was essentially a single parent since they were born. If their dad wasn't deployed or otherwise away for work, he wasn't much involved in their lives anyway, At any rate, I am...

    I Have a Couple of Beautiful Kids.

    My children are so funny, They wake up in the morning to play "store" with each other before one goes to kindergarden. When he comes home they start the game again. They are so full of energy and imagination and love. It is a wonder that we were all like that once. I...

    This is something for us l to think about!

    We all want to be the "cool" parents, but does being the cool parent make you a good parents? Seriously, if your child has told you "I hate you" at some point in their life, you must be doing something right! Take a minute to read this, it gives us all something to reflect...

    Love of a Parent The love of a parent is

    immeasurable. So much so, that it could be said that a child is the personification of a parent’s love. The love is so strong, that should it be taken, we may not survive without it… A love so strong that, should it be lost, so too would a part of our very soul… A love...

    The Talk I hate giving the speech about the

    Madness

    My wife and I adopted our son

    when he was 7 years old. He is an amazing young man in many ways, but his early years were not easy. Because of the neglect and abuse he endured, he has emotional and behavioral issues that run deep, and always will. We have tried hard to learn how to be the parent's he needs...
