    I'm following up on my earlier question about

    talking to my son, and it went very well. He took it really maturely, and is now ready for life ;). Thanks everyone for all the support!

    As divorce approaches,

    there are many losses to lament. Among the greatest is the sad effect for the kids. I love them so much, and wanted to spare them all this anguish. It's the chief reason I didn't divorce the STBX immediately after D-day. When my world came crashing down, my next thought was "I...

    Good idea: Buying new laptop.

    Bad idea: Letting 13 year old son set it up and consequently create my user name as Tird Monkey.

    Every morning I am optimistic we have plenty of

    time. And every morning it's a mad rush out the door to get the kids to school, now day camps, and to get to work in decent time. We usually start off well, wake the kids up ("Good morning, sunshines! Wake up sleepy heads!" ), I get breakfast ready while the wife showers and...

    My five year old learned to ride her bike today.

    This was completely unexpected as we had not been out with her bike sans training wheels since last fall. But with the first push down a slight hill, she was off and pedalling. The smile on her face as she rode back and forth along the path with her older sister was priceless...

    My children are so much like me.

    I put on the never ending story for my little cousins they say " it's so boring can we watch [some idiotic modern cartoon or show]." I put on the never ending story for my children they watch it until they go to sleep. The next day my son asks "mommy can we watch the rock biter...

    I love my children. I got up this morning

    and my son was at the edge of my bed waiting for me to get up. When he saw me move, he said get up mommy. So I got up and I asked him what he wanted. He said, I want juice mommy. So, I got up and fixed him some juice. When I turned around to give him his juice, he was standing...

    We were watching an episode of "The Amazing

    Race", last night and one of the challenges was in Munich. They took part in Octoberfest celebrations and had to carry 10 beer steins to a table. The women and men had to dress in traditional costume and the women's costumes were quite revealing if they were busty. One of the...

    Driving in the car, this is a conversation I

    had with my daughters, ages 9 and 5. Youngest: Hey dad, did you hear that One Direction broke up? Oldest: They did? Why? Me: Well, I guess they want to do things on their own, have solo careers. Oldest: Oh. Just like the Beatles. Youngest: The Beatles broke up???? LOL...

    when I realized I needed to run outside to quickly check something. We have a cat that will take unattended food so I asked my son to watch my food. When I came back, he was in my chair with his mouth right on my food. When I asked what he was doing he said it looked dead so...

    gives me reason to be proud. As I've gotten older, I've become a much more involved and appreciative parent.

    I made my two teenage sons breakfast

    for dinner this evening. Who knew that one dozen extra large eggs, one pound of bacon, four slices of buttered toast and hash browns wouldn't be enough to satiate their appetites. They are now "hungry" a half hour later! Teenage boys seriously never, ever stop eating!!!!

    I thoroughly love all my five children.

    I have three girls and two boys. They have been my life since they were born. I really wanted a lot more children but that did not happen. However, I have still been blessed and very thankful to have had the opportunity to raise children .

    My eldest brought me breakfast in bed Sunday

    morning. My youngest has written a bunch of songs, including the sure fire hits "I Love Piggies", "Pulling My Pants Down" and "Cold Coffee", which comes with a choreographed dance.

    Parenting is almost never a negotiation.

    It's a series of rules that continually change as the child grows. Without the rules and the boundaries the child will not feel safe enough to continue to grow tall, strong and happy. That child will not trust the world and will allow others to violate their boundaries because...

    My husband took my five year old son to the
