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
By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/5/13 As I line up our year of abundance, I must stay focused on the non-material. There is nothing more important to me than raising you both to be and become God-fearing virtuous women. We have become a remarkably resilient and close family over the past three years. Within these past… Continue reading For My Virtuous Daughters
By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/3/13 I came into 2013 by myself. I sat in my recliner with the television on completely, captivated by my new James Patterson book. As the midnight hour approached, I wondered what 2013 would bring for me. And as I sat alone, I began to feel lonely. My daughters were at… Continue reading Living by Faith
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?
By: Mia L. Hazlett 6/7/2012 So I've been looking into moving closer to Boston. But to move is not as simple as finding a place and moving there. My number one concern as a parent of two school-aged children is a "good" school system. Now why "good"? Because I don't leave it on the school… Continue reading It’s Your Fault, Not the Schools
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
