By: Mia L. Hazlett 7/19/14 There was a time when I used to feel guilty for what I couldn't do for my kids. In all honesty, those times continue to drift in and out of my life, but now in the blink of an eye they're gone. They no longer bring tears or reckless spending… Continue reading Guilt Doesn’t Live Here
By: Mia L. Hazett 1/10/14 A new year is here. I was reading this blog the other day and couldn’t understand why I neglected it so much through 2013. I came to realize it was because of growth. The concept when I initiated this blog, was to focus on child-rearing with a no-nonsense approach. When… Continue reading Growing Up
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/6/13 Dear Lost One: There is a reason you are no longer in my daughters' life. My biggest hope was that she would stay with you forever and would one day marry and raise a family together. But because I'm her mother, I had to wait until you broke her heart… Continue reading To My Daughters’ Ex-Boyfriend
By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/27/13 I can talk about money all I want, but both of you know, in our house, you have to earn it. My job is to make sure you have love, morals, values, food, shelter, and clothes. That’s it!! Anything above and beyond those, is because I love you. I was… Continue reading WORK FOR IT!
By: Mia L. Hazlett Date: 1/27/13 Hello my precious daughters. What makes the world go 'round? Money. I hate to say it darlings, but money makes the world go round.

Honesty By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/20/13 I began this blog to address my concerns about the relationship concerns I witnessed between parents and children. My most pressing concern was watching the increasing amount of friendships between children and parents. There was no line drawn when it came to the roles of the parent and… Continue reading Honesty
What in the Damn? By Mia L. Hazlett 12/13/12 I had to give my praise to God before diving right back in here. But I'm back! The opinionated mother. Friend to no child. So I must ask the question, what in the DAMN?!?! Here goes, I've been living in my house since September. I love… Continue reading What in the DAMN?

Hazlett 5/9/12 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/05/first-grader-suspended-for-singing-im-sexy-and-i-know-it/ I was talking with my BFF yesterday and couldn't believe what she told me. I was telling her how my daughters had made up a dance to "I'm Sexy and I Know It," by LMFAO. I don't particularly care for the song. I basically listen to my iPod in… Continue reading I HAD A KID, NOT A ROBOT!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/27/12 I was watching this movie called Trust the other night. It's by David Schwimmer and it was excellent. It was about a teen (maybe 14 or 15) who was texting back and forth with a "boy" she met on-line. They finally agreed to meet and it ended up being a… Continue reading My Roof, My Rules!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/27/2012 Unfortunately kids don't come with directions and you don't have to have a license to have one. A stupid person can go ahead and have a baby. In fact, two stupid people can conceive a child or two or three or.... When I say stupid, I mean they lack all… Continue reading Stupid Parents say Stupid Things
