Happy Mother’s Day!  The best and most proud title that I have is Mother to these kiddos…..my world

I dedicate this post to my mom who reminds me what it means to stand behind her kids every day.  She reminds me that mothering does not have an expiration date.  She is a strong woman who I am happy I can call my best friend……

To all my mother friend’s out there.  This is the hardest job and it truly takes a village of mom’s to get you through it.  I am the mom of teenagers and I doubt myself every day.  I hope and pray I am the best mom and stepmom I can be to them all.

One of the best things you can do for your child as they grow is to let go and allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong and responsible, allow them the freedom to experience things on their own terms, allow them to take the bus or the train and learn from life firsthand – allow them to be better people, allow them to believe more in themselves and do more by themselves.  Journeying through life on your own two feet is a learning process – you become stronger as you go.  It’s like a little girl who struggles to find her way home from school without her parent’s help – doing it the first few times is daunting and scary, but in the long run she’s safer and better off having learned the way.”
