  1. Starting again is the best thing on earth. If we couldn't start over, we'd be doomed. Good write!

  3. Sometimes Bitch Mama needs to roar, just to remind the kids where they stand in the pecking order. Honest, heart-felt and introspective, with a touch of grace at the end. Wonderful!

  4. I remember those days! One wonderful thing about getting older and embracing the wisdom of age is the fact that these days come fewer and farther between. But, oh, I remember those days!!

  9. Not a mom, obviously, but have been a step-parent (too briefly): related strongly to this, perfect work.

    It's all we can do, in all things, is set up realistic expectations, and do our best to live up to them.
