A mom to 3 kids, 2 dogs and 1 cat, (so far, but who’s counting)
I know all the secrets to being a great and a perfect parent, and will reveal all of them to you in this blog, for free!!
Ooops… wouldn’t that be a great opening to this blog?
Not that I don’t want to share all these great secrets with you.
The truth is that I know nothing. No, really, the bigger my children are getting, the less and less I know. How crazy is that???
You know this cliché, about children NOT being born with a user manual?
Guess what! It’s true!
So one thing is for sure, this is not a “how to be a great parent” blog.
It’s more of a place for sharing with you special moments, wonders, worries, solutions, failures and successes …everything that can maybe help other people like me, who knows less from day to day about this mystery called parenthood.
Since I’m such a non-expert in parenting, I built a parenting experts website, for us all parents to be helped :)!
You can read about this site’s birth in this blog, and please make sure you visit it, my 4th kid, the parenting experts site 🙂
See you there.

Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post on my saga in becoming a foster parent. I read your April 14th post. It is tough when it all seems to happen at once and you feel you have to be the strong one for everyone else.
Been there, done that. My youngest is 22 out of 4 sons. I’ve learned PARENTING explores continued new frontiers of life.
Just wanted to let you know I just nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Go here
to read the official rules of acceptance is alright if you can’t but either way i think your blog is great!
Thank you very much for the award. I admit that i never find the time to follow the rules, but either way it’s a great gift to start my day with.
You are very, very welcome….and thank YOU for inspiring me 🙂
Hi. Just wondering if you do guest bloggers? Thx JT
Hi Janet, Not so far,no. However, looking into your blog you might want to join our community of authors at http://www.parents-space.com , the site I built lately (you can also read about it in this blog). Mail me to email@example.com if interested. Thanks
I would love to. How do I join? I cant see the option on the home page? Sorry if I am being a bit slow…
You’re not slow 🙂 I need to activate you as an author. Mail me please to firstname.lastname@example.org
I have 5 children, 13 grandchildren and 3 great grand children, I still cannot help you at knowing anything about how to! I now have one Airedale that is more to handle then all of the above? The best answer I can give is, “hold on things will always change” 😦
I do enjoy life. 🙂
I came to your post after you “like” one of my post. I’m enjoying everything I’ve read here. 🙂
I started a new blog last night called, BULLY BOUNTY. With so many children being bullied these days, I wanted children and adults both to have a place to go to talk to someone. In turn, I’m willing to talk with them, to make calls to their teachers, parents, and local authorities to help them out. Please help me spread the word. If it works out, I can see where it’ll be a very emotional, heartbreaking blog for me to continue, but it’s my way of helping others.
You sound like a wonderful person. I look forward to reading all your blogs. 🙂
What a wonderful idea!
Why dont you mail me with a link to your new blog, to email@example.com , and let me give it a thought; it sounds as a blog that I would love to promote.
See what I posted in facebook today: https://www.facebook.com/ParentingAndStuff?ref=hl – 30 anti bullying blogs… perhaps you can contact some of them as well.
Great post, I’ll repost it on my blog.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Wow, I was surprised with the email that said you liked my blog! It’s making me get working on posting more stuff. Thanks!

Hi there I’ve just nominated you for the Super Sweet Award:
Hi Jackie thanks! How’re you??
I’m good thanks 🙂 How’s you?
Good! Following parents0space.com? What do you think?
I am but I haven’t read a great deal lately as I’ve been busy in the house and garden, but what I’ve seen so far is great – well done!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post!! Love yours as well!
Yes! The parenting journey is one in which we learn so much and find that we can neither take all the credit if our kids do great things, nor take all the blame if they disappoint us – it is quite a journey! Thank you for the ‘follow.’!
Hi, I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You can find more about the award at the following site.
Just a note to let you know I’ve nominated you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award – no pressure to reciprocate of course. But if you would like to accept it, please find it at; http://teacher2mum.com/2013/05/08/belated-but-loyal-in-love/
Keep up the great posts!
Thank you so much for nominating me. I highly appreciate it!
Thanks for the like on my squid buddy post! I should have added (the link at the bottom) in the post, and I wanted to share it with you because this is a parenting website. I’m not a parent, so when I babysat for my 5-month-old niece for the first time, I requested a “baby flowchart” from my sister and bro-in-law. They did a great job and it silly and fun, but actually helpful! Hope it gives you a chuckle: http://doomthings.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/babies-need-flowcharts/
I’m not a parent yet, but I’m sure I could learn a lot from your blog! Thanks for following mine! I’m glad you found me 😀

Hi! Is anyone monitoring your blog? I’ve left comments from months ago and they’re still listed as “awaiting moderation”. This is disturbing as the blog is about kids cutting and considering suicide. No site like that should be afk. Please moderate. Thanks!
Here are two new ones I thought you’d like:
Never mind. The older your kids get, the smarter you will become in their eyes!
