    I was informed last night

    that my Saturday will be spent shopping for a prom dress. I just keep thinking at least I don't have to sit on bleachers. LOL

    I truly love being a mom.

    This is why I had children over the years and I am pregnant again now. My teenagers all love me being their moms too. I am not easy and I am not hard either on my children. I want and expect their homework done, the bedroom cleaned, trash taken out, dishes washed and put away...

    This morning as we're negotiating what sort of

    outerwear she should use today with the warmer temps, she prattles on about all the changes out there. "Yesterday it was wet out there! There were puddles - BIG puddles - all over the sidewalk and I had to walk through them!" Holding her backpack out, I dryly replied "Or you...

    Being a Mom

    I was told at a very young age that for me to have a child it may take some "work." As in, infertility issues. As I walked through life my dream of having a baby drizzled away with each step. At age 28, I married my best friend of 11 years. It was amazing to feel so...

    I'm okay!! Throughout her young life,

    these have been the words of my tough little chick. She was frequently ill during her formative years. Nothing life threatening, just upsetting for a toddler and her mother. All those nights in the ER hooked up to IVs for dehydration, kidney infection and the subsequent surgery...

    I love being a mom!!!

    ! And I can hardly believe it. 2 years ago I urinated on a stick and my heart stopped! My life was over! My body was ruined! I was pregnant! At 23 years my life wasn't together. We couldn't provide for a baby!! Should I abort it? Put it up for adoption?! I cried and cried and...

    You know what I love?

    I love those weird wonderful random things kids do. My 10 year old just walked through the room doing bird calls. Even my 18 year old still has times where she seems to have gone somewhat bonkers. It's not unusual for her to come up beside me and do an impression of a turtle...

    I know this weekend is going to be particularly

    hard for a lot of people... But whether your mom is alive or deceased, a good mom or a bad mom, you were born for a purpose, whether you've found it or not. This weekend and always love yourself.

    My son is 23 today! WHAT?

    !? How did this happen? I was careful to make the most of every moment. I made memories with him. I have laughed and cried with him. We've had serious discussions and some seriously wacky silly times. His image comes to mind and I see my little blonde boy with his blanket and...

    As kids are used to take the most things

    for granted in our society, I tried to tell them the value of having food every day (in this case bread) and the comfort just to take it, by making it on our own. Of course it was fun for them to make it too... but they have also learned their lesson by eating what they could...

    I'll be honest, it's not easy!

    Especially when you have a child with mental illness. But, being a mom is the most important thing I will ever do, and nothing has brought me more true joy.

    A while back I wrote another one of my epically

    bad poems about motherhood. You may have blocked it out. LOL Anyway, feeling sappy and sentimental that day, I sent it in a message to the daughter about whom it was written. Last night, she comes to me and asks if I'll read it on youtube the next time I do a poem. I point out...

    that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.

    my son is 7 and daughter 10. I love my job being a mom, even though it is tough. Can get boring and lonely at times being a single mom, hope to talk to some other moms on here who share the same philosophies with child raising. I would love it if any moms that want to talk...

    for new mothers. I have two wonderful Children but really, they are both well on their way to being on their own - my job done more or less. My son is 25, has a career and a young lady he is serious about. A wedding and grandchildren on the horizon? Only God can say. My...

    I like to ask my girls what they think about

    things. They always surprise me. What you think might matter most to your child often isn't anywhere near the top of the list. Today I was shopping with my 18 year old. Curious, I asked "what do you see when you look at me? What stands out?" I was expecting (as we always seem to...

    Is a woman a woman before child birth?

    Let's not fight now! It's a debate that I had with my girlfriend's dad the other night. I was surprised to hear that he disagreed with me. I said that I truly feel that a woman is not fully capable of loving anyone but herself until they have a child. My problem...I was...

    Fun Times

    I think one of the most important things you can give your child is your time. Buying things and giving things is fine and great but nothing will stick with your child more then the time you actually spend together. My youngest son will be 26 this next year and he still remember...
