I don’t know how parents do it. Really, I don’t. Okay I don’t know how good parents do it…you know the ones that don’t sleep because their baby doesn’t sleep…
I loved flowers, mom’s, and all the wonderful things that represented mother’s day. But it wasn’t until recently that Mother’s Day is just another lesson hidden behind presents. Mother’s Day is a lesson in graciously receiving presents that your children give you, no matter how bad you may think they are.
The vast majority of parents do have [a] favorite child, according to research — about 80 percent. So be honest with yourself and your children because they’ll figure it out and ultimately grow to distrust you.
I like my house relatively clean, and organized but there is dust on the tables, carpeting that needs vacuuming, a floor that requires mopping, etc. and I’ll get around to it today but not after I put it off, and my belly button is completely clear of lint. I’m one of those women when I’m stressed out I DON’T reach for a cleaning bucket; instead I reach for ice cream and the remote.
To all of those that have lost a pet; I know your pain and the heartbreak that goes with it. There is nothing like it in this world, but remember your children may not need as much discussion about it as you may think.
