I am to be a mother ... When a second child is born ...

A mother would be able to invent happiness to give her children. (cit. Madeleine Delbrer) Sometimes, when the night falls and the children sleep in their beds, I close my eyes and wonder how my life could have happened if I had not decided to become pregnant. I could be famous, or at least rich, I could not have stretch marks on my stomach and it was time to adjust my eyebrows whenever needed.

Pre-Christmas time in my home can be described in one word - chaos. I run from store to store, from room to room, I bustle in the kitchen and bathroom, at the same time trying to with a clear conscience on holidays to be able to celebrate the fact that we are all together, only for ourselves and we do not have to do absolutely anything (except food prepared treats of course).

Mom, dad, let me be independent ...

Can love hurt? Can you love too much? Can we accept that our children are growing up? Sometimes, when evening falls, and the movie is more boring than the law provides, I find myself running away with thoughts somewhere far, analyzing my past life. Sometimes I come to the conclusion that I am not as great and perfect as I thought so far ... In my boundless love for children, I would gladly save them from all the evil that lurks in everyday life.

Mothers on the front, that is what these fears are about

We live in a strange world where a few reasons are not allowed, and many of us try to express our opinion in a non-opposing tone.

When a child screams, "buy me ..."

I am not perfect. I'm just a mom. Human. I am wrong and sometimes I work to my disadvantage. I had to make some mistakes. On the blacklist is my "good heart", or rather the desire to silence any "moans" in the bud. As for confession, I admit that I gave in to requests to buy something that we did not plan, I handed the lollipop to end "whining", I gave a wafer so that I could take care of shopping and have peace of mind.

"Before you give your child kindergarten candy ..." LETTER

"I am the mother of a little allergic person. Anyone who has a child with food intolerances in kindergarten or school knows what it means when a toddler can't eat everything and is on an elimination diet.
