Goals, Goals, Goals

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/19/12 Setting goals is one thing.  For most it's an extremely easy task.  Achieving them is another thing.  That takes a whole different mindset.  I've found those I've encountered that find it easy to set goals, don't have the honest game plan or intention for follow through.  They make a new… Continue reading Goals, Goals, Goals

Sometimes We All Like Each Other at the Same Time

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/19/12 This past weekend was one of those weekends that was just essential in my family's survival to not kill each other.  We all got along.  It is very rare for all three of us to spend from Friday through Sunday night together without a spell of crying, fighting, biting, kicking,… Continue reading Sometimes We All Like Each Other at the Same Time

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/16/12 Call me old school or whatever, but I'm not real big on the whole hand sanitizer thing.  If I think your hands are dirty, go wash them with soap and water.  I'm not touching you and you're not touching me if all you use is hand sanitizer after you just… Continue reading Healthy Dirty Kids

Fun Dad vs. Meaniac

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/15/12 My youngest has coined a made-up word for me, "Meaniac."  Whenever she doesn't get her way, I'm a Meaniac.  Okay.  I'll take it, it means I'm doing my job.  But like I've stated before, me and her father are separated and I am the custodial parent.  I have found for… Continue reading Fun Dad vs. Meaniac
