My Worst Parenting Moment/the Day that Took 10 Years Off My Life

My Worst Parenting Moment To Date

I wasn’t sure I wanted to share this but thought it might help someone. So, I’m writing it, not re-reading it, and publishing it without second guessing myself. I should have known better. The child in this story, who took at least 10 years off my life on this fateful day, is the reason we have chain locks on all our exterior doors. A few years ago, I made the mistake of using the bathroom, heard the door open, and before I could even pull my pants up, he was in the front yard. Anyone who comes to our house must think we live in an unsafe area, but it’s to keep people in, not out.

Untangled – a Must Read for Every Parent of a Tween Girl

If you click through my links & buy I receive a small commission. I purchased the book myself. Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood by Lisa Damour, Ph.D. was recommended to me by several people, and after hunting for a used copy for a while, I finally bought one new. I cannot recommend Untangled enough and I think it should be required reading for any parent of a tween, or an adult family member who spends time with her.

My Kids Are Growing Up & Sometimes It Makes Me Panic

Stop Telling Me My Kids WIll be Grown Up Before I Know It via @chgdiapers

People constantly say that mothers need to enjoy it because it goes too fast. They’ll be grown up before you know it. I suppose it’s true. My daughter is 11 now and it feels like she was born yesterday and a million years ago all at once.

My 4-Year Old Still Sleeps in a Crib and I Don’t Care What You Think

My 4-Year Old Sleeps in a Crib via @chgdiapers

Ok that’s not really true. It bothers me a lot what people think of me since my son still sleeps in a crib at 4 years old. When my mother in law watched the kids overnight for the first time in January (so we could go to a wedding), it was embarrassing. I know people probably think that I’m trying to “keep him a baby,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth. So, here’s why I’m trying not to care what you think about it.
