School starts and I miss my kids - Guest post

Guest post from: Steve Delaney

All of my kids have started school. There were times when I thought this day would never come. The day when I would have free time and be able to do what I wanted to do. I waited for the day when I could go to the grocery store without pushing the huge racecar cart for the kids. I thought this would be an exciting and wonderful day, but I find myself bored. I didn’t realize how much of my life my kids had become. I found myself sitting at home trying to find something to do. I thought maybe I would like watching more movies, so I ordered movie channels from DIRECTV. I thought I would want to read more, so I went to the library. The truth was that I missed my kids. I had been wishing away our time together and now I was wishing for it back. I guess I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have such great kids and such fun with them. Now I just want summer to get here so we can spend more time together.

Kids Are Enough - Guest Post

Contribution by Stevie Kirby

It’s really hard to know when your kids are old enough to leave at home. I mean, I think I’m a really good mom but there’s nothing out there that tells you at what age your kids will be fine if you leave them home alone. My pediatrician said that 10 or 12 is fine as long as they know the rules about not opening the door or leaving the house but my daughter is 11 now and I feel as if she may still be too young. I don’t know, though, maybe it’s just me being overprotective. I convinced my husband to help me do a few things around the house to make it safer like go to for a security system and install deadbolts on all the doors, so that helps a little bit. All in all, though, I just don’t want Dora being home alone and scared in case something happens or there’s a storm or something. Guess I’ll have to get over it soon and let her grow up a little bit!
