My Incredible Daughter – Raising Beauty Inside and Out

My only daughter is also my first born child. I am also the first born child so I know with that role in the family comes a lot of expectations and a leadership type personality, in most sibling cases. I could not be more proud of my daughter, as she grows older she only grows more beautiful inside and out. Some may say I am bragging, but to me, I am not bragging, I am simply sharing how proud I am of my daughter as I do with all three of my children. Being proud of your children and showing […]

That Moment You Realized, “I done Good”

This right here is my daughter. My lovely first born and only daughter. My sweet, lovely first born child and only daughter is at “that age”, and parents, I know you know what I am talking about! That age where hormones go flying, your child becomes someone you don’t know and things are a bit testing at times. It’s an age of changes across the board …. friendships, relationships, body image, hormones and much more! What I had hoped would happen but didn’t really expect to happen during this age of changes, keeps happening! The other day I had an […]

I Became Guilty of Being Somewhat Lazy

I guess using the word lazy isn’t really fair when you think about being Mom to three kids and working from home, but it’s the only word I could really think of to describe the habit I got into for a long time. You see, over the years my daughter‘s Dad just sort of handled everything. I got into the habit that he was great at being in control so why bother? Then as my daughter got older and we formed a closer bond of communication, I found out that she didn’t really want me to take the “back burner” […]

Co-Parenting Isn’t About Personal Feelings

The holidays are coming and to be honest I have absolutely no clue if this is the year I have my daughter for Thanksgiving or not and as I started thinking about that it stirred up a few thoughts inside of my head; mainly thoughts surrounding my witness of other co-parents being so territorial about their child. Whenever I see co-parents; two parents no longer residing together in a personal relationship but raising child(ren) together, they are not usually super friendly with each other. If these co-parents have moved on to have children with other people it seems those children […]

Lack of Hearing, Arguments and the Joys of Parenting

My daughter is the brightest, sweetest little girl in all of the world. I love this child of mine as much as I love my boys but let me tell you what, even though she is among one of the teachers favorite students and is always willing to lend a hand to help, she is a pain in my bum sometimes.   Miss Ki will be 9 years old in October and as she grows I realize more and more how much we butt heads being “take control” kind of people. We both have that need to mother and need […]

Dealing with Parenting Multiple Children

When I had my first child it was easy to parent her because she was an only child for four years. She had my undivided attention and since I worked outside of the home when I was home I was not thinking about getting her to sleep so I could log on and get work done. I went to sleep with my daughter and woke up with my daughter, dropped her at home daycare and headed to the office. Life was very different raising my daughter versus when I added my second child and then my third child. My daughter […]

Always be My Babies

I told my kids the other day that they are all my babies and my almost nine year old daughter piped up “I am not a baby”. What my daughter doesn’t realize is that she is my first born child, my first born was the one who taught me to be a better person, to think more positive about myself and much more. Simply just becoming a Mom for the first time changed me in so many ways that she will forever be my sweet baby! I love all of my children and each have taught me something about myself […]

Quality not Quantity

If you are a parent of multiple children, meaning more than one child, it seems you must determine the best way to share your time. It is important for every child to have time alone with their parents one on one as often as possible. Let’s get real though, life is busy and to actually have the time to spend with each child alone every day may be near possible for most of us. I used to be really good about having time with my daughter, at least once every weekend she was home. During the week is difficult because […]

Got Baby Fever? Or Baby Blues?

I don’t have them but I see many people around getting pregnant, almost due to have babies, etc etc and I do think about how cute a little baby is. Although I much so dislike being pregnant which means, my butt doesn’t get blue, it just gets happy for those who look so beautiful pregnant! I love following along with my blog friends and local friends who are having babies and I would love to be right there to hold the baby after it is home from the hospital or babysit for them, however, I am all set on the […]
