Every month, we’ll each write on a topic that is close to our hearts in raising our children — me raising a girl, and her raising two boys.
Sometimes those topics will be gender-specific, sometimes we’ll have unique takes based on the unique natures of raising girls or boys, and sometimes the gender won’t really play into it at all.
i want to say a very big thanks and appreciation to Dr.
Keke Odin the chief priest of all spell casters worldwide for bringing back my husband who left i and the kids for almost three months within the space of two days after following all instruction given to me.
Because if you two are together, that means your teens are off doing something somewhere else — and very often, that something involves driving Last night my boyfriend and I were out on another walk (Single Parent Survival Rule #1: Always try to do two things at once, such as: dating/exercising, dating/grocery shopping, dating/having your tires rotated).
I’m so excited to be launching this monthly series with Melissa from The Eyes of a Boy: Girl Talk/Boy Talk.
Even if we have special “I love you rituals” built into our everyday life, it can be easy for parents and children to disconnect or even just lose touch with how special our relationships are.
I know because I have one child that it is easier for me to say this, but it is so important to spend special one-on-one time with our children.
These rules include: don't introduce anyone to each other too soon; be careful not to sacrifice time with your child at the start of a relationship, and so on.But as your kids get older, they present a totally new set of challenges. few months ago, my teenage daughter and I were sitting in a park a few feet away from a couple who were clearly on a date with two young kids from other relationships in tow.As the mom and dad chatted under the shade of a tree, the boy and the girl gleefully played tag, occasionally calling out comments to each other about "your mom" or "your dad." After watching them for a few minutes, my teen smiled, shook her head, and said: "Those kids have absolutely no idea what's going on! "Blessed were the days." And while it would be foolish to negate the challenges of dating when one still has young kids, I couldn't help but be nostalgic for the "simpler times" back when my own kids were little (and didn't, say, provide an in-depth analysis of my psyche to my boyfriend or text me approximately 1,000 times during the course of a dinner date).Managed by their vaudevillian mother, the three sisters would become a traveling act, first known as the Gumm Sisters, and later billed as the Garland Sisters.The trio would make their move into Hollywood and eventually Judy would get signed onto MGM at the age of 13.'s opening. " she whispered to the show's costume designer Donald Brooks. And I got her up there because I'm her mother and conceivably her inspiration — the heck with her motivation." Judy's competitive spirit was not lost on a young Liza."It was like Mama suddenly realized I was good, that she didn't have to apologize for me," Liza recalled. One minute I was on stage with my mother, the next moment I was on stage with Judy Garland.
