A Mother’s Rant

No Touching

This rant is one of my favorite. I am not sure if it is because the hair is getting bigger or taking on a life of its own.... It really does not matter. It is not okay to put your hands in someones hair without asking. I repeat, it is not okay to touch my hair! I am not a pet! I know it is wild and probably really tempting,…

Proud, Scared, Happy, Sad

Letting Go Sucks

There comes a time in every mother’s life where she has to let go. No one can ever prepare you for how you will feel. I have heard many of my friends and family members say over and over again, “I can’t wait until he/she turns 18 years old, he/she will be out!” I was never that parent. I was the one who dreamed of my older two moving into…
