About Me

My photo
I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

Maybe it never gets easier.....parenting that is.

You know how you are so stressed out when your little ones are learning to walk....you agonize over each little bump and fall...wishing you somehow could do it for them - that you could HELP!
Well - I hate to tell you...but it doesn't get any easier.
when they're "tweens" and with growing pains - DIFFICULT
when they're "teens" and all the drama that entails - MORE DIFFICULT
when they're "young adults" and suddenly think they have all the answers (that of COURSE you DON'T have) and then come crashing back to earth - AWFUL

Maybe that is what makes us better parents with the younger children huh?!
Maybe we can look at those little bumps and falls and give them love, kiss the boo boo and shoo them on their way...because you KNOW that in the future they'll still need you to give them love...kisses and often...just letting them go.

Thank you as always for sharing in my daily adventures/learning.

With all my heart -


  1. I know that the sentence "because you KNOW that in the future" doesn't flow very well - but I can't decide how to explain it otherwise.
    I guess I'm just saying the hardest part may be letting them go...
    but you hope they know you're always right behind them...ready to show love and encouragment.

  2. thats why i say, i wish theyd just stay little. i have one on the edge of puberty and i pray for him *and me* to survive :) with Gods help, we will.

  3. I have teenagers and keep comforting myself with the thought that they won't be teens forever. Please don't crush my dreams!


  4. LOL with Lisa - Ah yes...I wish I could say the 20's were easier.....I wish...
