It is my journal and a document of my life.
I need to be better about writing in it.
Hopefully to have some sort of written legacy of a sort to leave my family and children.
Life has been so crazy lately, I wonder
I really do LOVE what I am learning.
I enjoy reading chapter after chapter of my textbooks and reading the articles and studies from all my different classes. All of this STUFF is actually helping me
to be better at my job as a Mother/Wife....
I have learned about the different parenting styles, communication styles, verbal and nonverbal communication, the development of children esp through the important teenage years. . .
AAAHHH, I can't believe that TEENAGE YEARS are just around the corner for us.
It has only been what seems like a blink of the eye and I have
4 kids, and have been
married for 12 1/2 years.
Where did time go?
Am I doing enough to help my children grow up to be
KIND Loyal HONEST Generous CARING Successful ADULTS
I do know as I have gotten older I appreciate the small moments with my kids more. . . the before school hugs, the requests to read a book or watch a movie for the 100th time, the excitement when they show me good grades on tests (and even the bad ones so I can help them understand better) I love the dinner time talks, and bedtime hugs and kisses. I love my children, my husband, and love being with my family.
HOPEFULLY, Lochlin, Braeden, Ashlyn and Irelyn all know that I am trying my best to be a good mom. I want them to feel loved, feel like they can talk to me (and Chad), I want them to learn good values, and know that I support them, I want them to get a good education and I am hopefully setting an example that at any age you can finish your education.
(but it is so much easier when you are younger)
