I Love Being a Mom

    My son is seriously the light of my life.

    After going through a horrible miscarriage, I never thought having a child was possible for me. But the day I found out I was pregnant with my son, I burst into happy and scared tears. Being pregnant again was VERY scary because I didn't want to lose another baby. That, and I...

    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...

    She discovered with great delight

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

    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...

    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...

    This morning as we're negotiating what sort of

    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...

    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.

    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
