By: Mia L. Hazlett I remember my grandfather when I was growing up. I had two up until about 3rd or 4th grade, but my father’s father was with me until my thirties. He was the man who taught me how to drive. He was the man who would come to our house when I was… Continue reading James Patrick Hazlett
By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/4/14 I posed this question on Facebook and in a few conversations at work and other conversations some weeks ago. “Question to my single moms out there, say you had your own place, car, decent income to support yourself and children, would you consider a serious relationship with a man… Continue reading She’s Head of the Household
By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/11/14 When I was little, I used to play house. Sometimes I played with my friends, sometimes alone. I had my little baby dolls and there was a father and mother. There was never a doubt about marriage, that was just obvious. My husband and I would go to work and… Continue reading Playing House
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 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

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 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 3/2/12 How many of us heard this saying growing up, “Respect your elders?” I can’t exactly remember how old I was the first time I heard this, but I remember by whom and the exact situation. I was lucky enough to have gone to work with my grandmother at the floral… Continue reading Respect Your Elders
By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/28/12 So I'm coming down with a cold and the only thing I wanted to do tonight was come home and go to sleep. I did the mommy thing and my oldest came up to me with a frown around bedtime. From behind her back she pulled out a bracelet she… Continue reading BFF…Not!
