I raised a responsible kid

I raised a responsible kid

My baby girl went out last night and didn’t get back to her dorm until almost 7:00 am. Does it make me a bad mom to say I’m slightly impressed? She is finally enjoying the city life with a mixture of high school friends and a few college friends. It’s been a tough road so far, her first semester at college, so I’m so happy that she is out and about in the city over the weekend. Well right now…

Grateful for being a single mom

Grateful for being a single mom

A few weeks ago my daughter and I got matching tattoos. This was a promise I made to her years ago before she was legal to get a tattoo. Our last name is Star so we got the stars on our wrist. Black for me, blue for her, intertwined in the ribbon. The tattoo needs something else but we’ll figure that out and add it at a later date. When I told my sister she said, “yuck but you two are…

Rocking Motherhood in 10 different ways despite MS

Rocking Motherhood in 10 different ways despite MS

I follow all the blogs I come across with people that have a MS. I like to see how they deal with it what’s going on with them, what medicine they take, etc. I like to read how they deal with the obstacles of having MS and balancing life. One of my personal favorites is Jen from http://Www.trippingthroughtreacle.wordpress.com. Jen’s blog is uplifting and inspiring despite her illness.  Jen has had MS for over 20 years. For me especially at 19 years…

Yesterday was a good day-a mom’s worst nightmare

Yesterday was a good day-a mom’s worst nightmare

At 5:58pm, my daughter calls me from her car. She tells me she’s annoyed with her boyfriend. This is an ongoing conversation over the last 2+ years of their relationship. She said she wanted to drive for a bit before she had to be at work at 7. The conversation lasted all of 3 minutes. At 6:03 I received another phone call from her hysterically crying, she was in a car accident. It was the call I’ve been terrified of…

Life with one puppy, one senior dog and one high school senior

Life with one puppy, one senior dog and one high school senior

Zoey, the puppy, is now 6 months old. She is accident free about 95% of the time, chewing on things she shouldn’t about 95% of the time and adorable 100% of the time. I forgot how challenging it can be with a puppy because my youngest dog before her is now 8.  I don’t know if this is all puppies or just her but she is obsessed with my coffee. I will have to throw my couch soon because she’s…

The holiday weekend

The holiday weekend

I guess the holiday weekend technically starts today for this household. Tonight I take my daughter to the airport.  She will fly to Virginia to see her dad. As much as I know she is excited to go, she’ll miss being home. For her mom, that’s me, I always miss her when she’s gone. However for the first three days of the trip, I’ll be occupied. Tomorrow morning I’m picking up my friend, adopted family member,  who will be staying…

The hard part of raising a child who’s ready to go

The hard part of raising a child who’s ready to go

I was a good teenager, in realations to other teenagers. I didn’t do hardcore drugs. I didn’t break curfew. I didn’t steal. I wasn’t arrested. I helped around the house as needed. I liked my parents. I liked spending time with my parents. I became rebellious the summer I was leaving for college. I could smell the freedom. I can smell the beginning of something new. I could feel the start of my life. I hated high school. I didn’t…
