An excerpt from the book-When Mothers Cry-Before She Became a Mother - YouTube

I thought back to this audio I recorded awhile back.  I guess what made me think of it was due to so many young people I have found out recently becoming pregnant at 16 plus.  No one knows just how much some people despise being a mother until you see the tears or feel the pain from those who are severely impacted in your own family.  You watch or hear of  a young person struggling with "a mistake" or "accident" that will be with them for the rest of their lives.

Then you look at your own life and you have to say, "Wow, I came a long way.  I may not have been a teen mom, but I know I wasn't ready for my surprise."

Vacation with Children: How Wonderful?

Let's just be honest, if you are traveling anywhere with young children, you will be faced with a set of challenges.  They may cry for something, become ill, fight, get lost, or move or talk so much that you think they got a hold of the most sugary thing they could find!

Recently, I had the joy of being with my children during a short road trip.  Thank God, it was short!  But what worked my nerves, during this trip, was those periods in the hotel room when they didn't want to be still enough to close their eyes and go to sleep like normal people.  Oh no, the excitement of all that is new and different kept the children active hours past an adult's patience!

As much as I love my children, I also know how much they can be a challenge at times to manage.  I am not one of those parents who denies that their children and others get on their nerves.  Some parents mismanage their frustrations and blame everyone and everything, but their children.  I feel that is so wrong and if this kind of attitude is kept up, it can destroy decent relationships, friendships, and even cause problems on the job.  No one wants to hear about how it is this person's fault and that issue which caused XYZ when everyone can clearly see that you are stressed out about your children.  Save the public relations campaign for those bratty, selfish little people with their starry-eyes and cute little ways.

I created another blog not that long ago about my recent experiences traveling with my children, do check it out here.
