    Baby Brother My daughter Raspberry wants to

    Story # 229 When In Doubt, Ask A Child.

    Kids are so helpful, aren't they? When my granddaughter was about 2 or 2 1/2, her mother was searching frantically, for her watch. It was more to her than just a watch. It had been bought as a gift by someone and it was one of those beautiful jeweled bracelets with the watch...

    I love my children SO much,

    but sometimes they get on my very last nerve! I'm pretty sure children have misbehaved since the beginning of time. It's hard as a parent, though, to know how to discipline them just right. My husband and I have set rules and boundaries for them. There should be no question or...

    This happened to my good friend.

    Her granddaughter was combing her mother's hair. Both of them have very long beautiful hair. Mother says to granddaughter 'do you comb your other grandmother's hair like this?' Granddaughter in her four year old voice said 'no ....my other Grandmother takes her hair off."

    Story # 210 When The Stroller Broke

    When my grandson, Taylor, was four years old, his stroller broke and as he was already too old for a stroller anyhow, we weren't going to replace it. But, he and his Mom lived 10 blocks east and 4 long blocks north of where I lived. So, it was a very long walk for short legs and...

    I have a three year old

    and I'm expecting my second. It's odd that for the longest time I never wanted children and then I got older and things changed. Once I actually became a mother, my world really changed forever. I never ever knew love as I know it now. There is just something so amazing about...

    I love reading to the little ones.

    Their little faces light up and they get all excited. I remember that feeling when mum or dad got a story. I think every child should have that feeling. At 7:15 every night I read to my kids. Anyone who wants to listen can come over and sit on the sofa with me. Usually Finlay...
