Guilty!

Guilty!

Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. I am guilty! My lovely, crazy teen sent me this link a few years ago.  “11 Things I Never Do As A Mom,”  and I am guilty! Let’s pick this article apart as it pertains to me. Article: 1) Play with my kids Are you horrified? Flabbergasted? Well, sorry, but it’s the truth. When I had but a mere one and even two children, I played with kids aplenty. All morning, I’d drop whatever chores I had…

Safe Havens

Safe Havens

Newborn found in trash outside a PA home. Infant found dead in trash outside a CT Home I found these news stories very disturbing.  I am angry about this.  Hearing stories about babies being hurt, murdered, or left in the trash to die makes me upset and angry.   The government created Safe Havens for a reason.  To save these babies!  If you don’t want your baby, you have the opportunity to bring that baby to a hospital, fire station,…

Family Day Sunday

Family Day Sunday

We try to spend one day a week together.  The week is busy with work and kids activities.  It’s important to take one day a week to have as family time. We spend our one day a week together going shopping, watching movies, playing in the yard, or going to car shows.  My husband, teen, and 5-year-old are really into Volkswagen.   What activities do you love to do with your family?  

Teen Drama

Teen Drama

Oh my goodness!   The drama of a teenage girl.  I don’t remember ever being as dramatic as my teen is. The boy…  The drama with the boy.  Why is there all this drama with this boy?  She is not even dating him.  She wants to date him, and he very clearly likes her but they do this dance around the subject.  They have been doing this dance since the end of April.  We keep telling her to put her 1920’s…

I saw a story on Facebook today.  Yes I know, don’t believe everything you read/see on the internet.  But I can really relate to this particular story, and I think many of you moms out there can too. You may have seen the story about the young mom, who happens to be the same age as me.  She wore a bikini for the first time since she had kids to the beach.  A couple of grown men came upon her…

What’s a Good age to Leave Kids Home Alone?

What’s a Good age to Leave Kids Home Alone?

Every parent has this dilemma with their school aged children.  Many states laws have a very thin line on when children can be left home alone.  A lot of states do not state a specific age, but state it depends on the maturity of the child. There have been many news stories about this topic.  I remember one from a few years back.  Parents left their responsible teenager home while they went out to the store, and while they were…

  In May 2008 I got pregnant. My husband and I were ecstatic but nervous. This was my third pregnancy. We set up the usual doctor appointments and everything checked out great.

My other two daughters were thrilled! Every month I had an ultrasound…

Teens & Bedtimes

Teens & Bedtimes

Does your young teenage daughter have a bedtime?  Should young teenage girls have bedtimes still? First let me explain “young teenage daughter”.  By young, I am referring to the ages 13-15. I had taken notice that my young teenage daughter was staying up late (1-2 in the morning) chatting via text message and Facebook chat.  She is a good teenager with excellent grades, and my husband and I like her friends.  We just feel that she is staying up way…
