A Mom Blog Social Network
Being a mother is the most challenging, and rewarding, experience of my life. You have taught me what it means to be unconditionally loved, how to unconditionally love another, to want something better for someone else than what I want for myself, and helped me understand who I am in ways I don’t know that I would have ever…Continue

I don’t really like thinking about my own mortality, but I've been think recently about the end of my parenting life. Don’t me wrong, I am fully aware that you never really stop being a parent, but…

I had to share three things my son said to me since last night that made me melt like butter!
"Mom, your hair is softer than a cloud" he said last night as he smoothed my hair out over his pillow and laid on it before falling…Continue

I know I haven't met you yet - or maybe I have and I scared you away when I came at you waving a tape measure. If that was the case, please - hear me out. Read…Continue

It's no surprise that the oldest boy has increased the amount of pressure and stepped up his daily harassment, hoping desperately to sway me into saying, "Yes. You can go get a tattoo, son!"
See, he thinks it was his tactic of never-ending harassment that worked in his favor several weeks ago, when I finally allowed him to get his ears pierced (after three years of nonstop asking). He hasn't figured out that it wasn't because of his begging, constant pleading and nagging which caused…Continue

There was once a teenage mother... me. I was 19 when I had my oldest son. He's almost 15 now. When his father and I split up, my son went to live with him, and so it's been for years.
He's the most amazing kid. He stands up for himself. He loves gaming, theater, and football, and he does all three in school. He's in the middle of all the social groups like I was in high school. He doesn't take any crap.
He stands up for me. I'm in a committed relationship with a woman, and have…Continue

Yes, I am a 35 year old woman and I am beside myself with excitement about the upcoming release of the movie The Hunger Games. This popular book by Suzanne Collins was made into a movie that is being released on March 23 at Midnight.
Like the Twilight Saga and Harry Potter, this series is highly…Continue

Recently, a situation has come to my attention. I coddle my boys.
Now, you have to understand this confession is coming from a mother who believes in raising her sons to be wonderful husbands. Strong, independent, caring, supportive. But especially, well trained in housework and cooking. I have no intention of being one of those mothers who clean their rooms, make their beds, cook their dinners, do laundry,…Continue

He'll dress in a charcoal gray Calvin Klein tux. He'll put a wristlet on his sweetheart. He'll smile for a million and one photos. He'll stay out all night at an After-Prom party hosted by his high school. He'll dance and laugh and eat and, yes, he'll probably even smooch his girl. He'll do everything that all other juniors do to enjoy and experience prom...as I did. But for the last 25 years, (ugh...really--a quarter of a century?) prom meant more to me than its pomp and…Continue

Lately, I am a lonely mother. I know--even in a world with millions of moms and mom-blogs and mom-circles and mom magazines, even though my closest confidants are parents: I am a solitary figure with solitary problems living in a deep dark solitary vacuum. What about those social networks you ask? Well, amongst 143 friends on my Facebook page only 20 of them aren't parents. (Mostly my former students, others who have made conscious choices NOT to be moms and dads, and one priest.) I…Continue
