I thought I was "prepared Mom," all set organization-wise, emotion-wise and with a young man who was "ready" academically and maturity-wise. I didn't fear Matt couldn't take care or lead himself; as a first child, he's been doing that since about the second grade.
It made me realize that there's a lot to learn about love, more than paper hearts, candy, and silly marketing, and that there's also a lot to teach my kids. Here's what I want my son to know about love.
When the nurse placed my first swaddled newborn on my chest right after I gave birth, I believe the first words out of my mouth to my husband were, "I am so f#@ked." And I still feel that way. Because before kids I was pretty invulnerable.
t's snowy and cold outside and the kids are just this side of driving you crazy. My husband and I own and operate three young sons, so trust me when I tell you that I completely understand! These easy-to-make sun catchers will keep the little ones busy.
