I am a Mommy to two healthy children, and I thank God for that every day and every night when I tuck them into bed. My son is almost 7 and will have a birthday this weekend. He is a first grader who loves math and science and has a love of learning! He is funny and wise, kind and caring, and at times, a real stinker!
My daughter is 4 and goes to preschool. She is learning to write her letters and her name, and the all-important job of socializing and sharing! She is kind and sensitive, at times dramatic and loves animals!
Having been a Mom for 7 years, and after almost 38 years, I can tell you that I have learned more lessons in my 7 years of being a Mom than I have in the rest of my life. It is a challenging, all-consuming job at times, my kids push me to my limits and there are days I have to fight to be reasonable and patient with them. Explosions sometimes happen because we are all only human but I have also found the power of apology to be just as important to them as me.
