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 4/27/12 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
By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/5/12 Honestly, if I hear one more time in my life, "boys will be boys," I will just scream. I will scare the crap out of whoever just said it. They won't get it and I'll look like a nut job. I've heard this saying my entire life, right up to… Continue reading Cut the Crap!
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
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
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
