Raising an independent child...

I'm not Super Mom, I am THAT Mom!

I strive to be a good mom. I always thought I would be the kind of mom that doesn’t allow her child to watch too much TV. Or no TV at all. The mom that doesn’t let her child play too many video games, or none at all. The mom that feeds her child only […]

A commercial I saw last night brought back a humorous memory, that I would like to share with you today.  It has to do with the funny, humorous and downright hilarious things that kids can say.
