    I can't help but feel a little envy

    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...

    Ali and her fella went to Kingsman last night.

    They got back and she said it was good. I commented about Colin Firth being the main reason I wanted to see it. Who's that? The old guy? And then proceeds to give me a spoiler I'm too kind to repeat. Double whammy. She is, on occasion, a brat. :P LOL

    Hello, i have two wonderful children,

    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...

    My son is 23 today! WHAT?

    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...

    My teenager was taking a picture of my drawing

    last night when I was done. Asked if she could post it on her instagram because she "wanted to brag." I've never much cared if I was the cool mom, but I will admit I got a kick out of that. LOL I learned my children are much more tuned into my happiness than I had ever realized...

    I absolutely love being a mom.

    My sons are well behaved and respectful of others. I love raising my boys and enjoy how they turned out as teenagers now. I am a very proud mom of her family.

    Alison commented on how happy I've been.

    Is it because you've been doing things you like? That certainly helps. Seeing you happy makes me happy. That's my girl. :D

    Contrary to what everyone will tell you,

    being a mom is the best job in the world. I have 3 daughters 17, 15 and 12 and I can honestly say we are all best friends. They are funny, cute, respectful and true joys to be around. My 17 yr old is now engaged and I love her fiancé as much as I love my own kids.

    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.

    Not Possessing the Qualifications But Willing to Learn

    Fun Times

    My Ali. She's 18. We are not alike in most ways.

    She's more practical, less fanciful. She's creative and emotional but pragmatic at the same time. It's an interesting mix. She's more judgmental, less open. More concrete. She's contradictory like me, but in different ways. She can be fun. She can be hard. She's usually a...
