The Counselor’s Office

This morning I got to start my day in the counselor's office at the middle school. M2 is being defiant and well we can't have that at school. Yes she is defiant at home but I have better resources than the school to get her back on track. So at the crack of the school... Continue Reading →

A Maturing N

I am not sure how people feel about divine intervention but I for one am a believer in it. No I will not get all preachy on you but here was one instance this week that let me know somebody upstairs was looking out for me. I went to see my kids nurse practitioner about... Continue Reading →

Thankfully 18

Last Tuesday M1 finally turned 18 and a wave of relief came over me. No longer am I responsible for her poor choices, her refusal to accept any responsibility or any of her illegal activities.  It was a bittersweet day to be honest because parts of me hate feeling this way, the rest of me...

Lack of Summer Plans

The Easter Message

I was pretty sure that last night was awful. How stupid and foolish I was. This morning was sooooo much worse I felt like last night was amateur hour. Kids get up and get excited about their lunch boxes stuffed with candy. M1 eventually emerges from her room and then goes back into her room.... Continue Reading →
