Honesty

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

For My Virtuous Daughters

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

Living by Faith

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?

It’s Your Fault, Not the Schools

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

My “Firstborn”

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”

Proud Momma

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

Your Son is NOT Your Man!

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!

I HAD A KID, NOT A ROBOT!

By: Mia L. 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!

A Family Thing

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
