As a mom, I do everything I can to make sure my son has everything he needs and some of what he wants. He is my reason for living. But there are times he says some very hurtful things without meaning to. Here are some of the worst things a child could say to their mom.
It seems that kids now a days are rushing to grow up. They all think they need cell phones, can't wait to learn how to drive and are anxious to move out. But is being girl crazy at the age of 5 normal?
I have been a mom for five years already but I still find times when it is unbelievable. At times it seems like I got a good handle on things and something happens and I fall apart. Does parenting ever get easier?
One of the things I love most about kids is their innocence. They play, laugh and have no care in the world! I'd much rather see the world through the eyes of a child. What they see as cool and/or fun others see as weird or wrong.
When I was pregnant everyone always told me, "Sleep while you can because once the baby is here you won't get any." I always laughed it off. Of course I 'd get some sleep, how much work is a tiny baby. Well, now my viewpoint is 'Sleep is for the weak! Moms don't have time for that."
The subject of getting a dog has been brought up in my home more and more recently. My son, especially, wants one. Although I'd love for him to have a pet that he can love and take care of, I do have some reservation. And is he even old enough for a dog?
The day in life of a mom consist of non-stop work. Household chores, work, kids, hubby and on and on. There is never time to just sit down and relax. So why do I always feel guilty about taking a little time for myself.
Sometimes I wish that being a parent came with a handbook. I want to make sure that my son becomes a good person but I also want him to enjoy his childhood. The household debate lately has been if he should start doing chores or not.
