    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...

    I am currently walking through Office Depot.

    A little boy about 4 years old just shot me with an imaginary pistol. I walked up to his Mon (hoping she had a sense of humor) and said. "Mam, I'm going to have to ask you to step aside. This is between me and the little amigo." She smiled really big (to my great relief) and...

    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 .

    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...
