By: Mia L. Hazlett 6/1/12 Almost 18 years ago, I had my "Firstborn". She is my favorite "Firstborn" because, I gained no weight, retained no water, and there were no sleepless nights. So the other day I found myself near tears when I read on her Facebook Wall that it was her last day of… Continue reading My “Firstborn”
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/18/12 http://wareham-ma.villagesoup.com/news/story/ipads-get-students-excited-about-learning/822457 I believe as you raise your children, there will always come a point in your life when you question yourself. Did I do this right? Did I do that right? Should I not have done this and that? Or at least I do. One of the areas I… Continue reading Proud Momma
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/11/12 I ran into the store the other day and there was this woman who deserved to get smacked out of this world! Her son was maybe 4 or 5 years-old and she said, "This is my little man right here. He takes good care of his momma." What in the… Continue reading Your Son is NOT Your Man!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/7/12 I know I preach so much about "The Village," but I believe in The Village. I don't believe there are any single parents out there. If you claim to be a single parent, than I believe you have a pride problem or you take a lot of people for granted… Continue reading A Family Thing
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/4/12 My day winded down. As my second foot landed inside the train, I left my exhausted day on the platform. I seated myself and exhaled looking forward to the first-degree activities of the evening. I had thought about them all day. Now, only hours before pure ecstasy would envelope me,… Continue reading A Gangsta and My Menage a Trois
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/3/12 So what are godparents to you and your family? Well to me they must reflect God (I love how people leave this out even with the given title), must have children, a very similar approach to raising a child, and my kids must know and love them. These are not… Continue reading The Godmuthah!
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
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 The Window Wait. That's what I call it. Sitting by the window waiting for what I know is not going to happen. When my husband and I first separated, Sundays and Mondays were his days with the kids. Sundays began with a 10 or 11am pick-up and Mondays he would… Continue reading When Daddy Doesn’t Show
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
