Sometimes I don’t write because I don’t have it all together. You would think that a mom of 11 should. I don’t. I am right with you trying to potty train.

Toddler to Teen

The older group we have ages 10, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 18.
In 3 seconds we go from a full down, drag out tantrum over the wrong sippy to a full down, drag out tantrum over taking away technology.

Physically our toddlers are more hard. Emotionally my teens are.
I love them all fiercely.

I can change a bum with them standing up. Probably blindfolded, hopping on one foot. I know what they eat, why they won’t, what battles to pick, sleep stuff, play stuff, homeschooling stuff, mom stuff. I GOT… Read More »Connection
