My Boys

My boys are my world.It is very difficult to raise them but I love every minute of it.At first I thought I would be teaching them so much but they have taught me so much.They make my life complete.

I love the struggles because they make me a more conscious more empathetic person. I love my boys and even though my life has drastically changed, ie, my art career is not where it should be, my financial state is not what i would like, my relationship with the father has always been rough....I would not change a thing. I have learned to be more patient, more understanding, less self centered and harder working than ever. I know my future will be brighter and better because i have children.

Yes, I would have to agree that being a parent is the most difficult job but I would say being a single parent is even harder. I have not had to be a single parent as I've been married for 22 years and have a 21 year old daughter & 18 year old son. I am going to risk saying the following: if I was given the choice to be a parent all over again, without knowing my 2 children but just knowing the struggles involved, I would NOT take on the parental role. I love my children very much, don't get me wrong, I just think I would want to do some other things with my life given the choice.
