an unquenchable thirst for life brings me into contact with an eclectic mix of beautiful people whom I call my friends. i'm pretty active, politically, socially,physically and get involved with local community events. Have several beautiful children, adult to toddler,
[More] and consider myself an intellectual heretic, no topic isn't worthy of discussion with a playful and irreverent approach
Last night my son was talking to his nana,like she was still here.He seemed very happy while doing this.I told him she could be hugging him and he said she could be hugging you to mommy.During the times he was talking to her it was very hard not to cry.I try to hide my grief from him most of the time.I beleive at times she's with me,and I know she's always with my son,he was everything to her,and I know so was I.He just woke up and we were talking and I told him he can talk to Nana any time not just on her birthday.I think he's on the road to healing I don't believe in spanking,time outs don't work.I now he needs boundaries and consistincy.I give in ,he cries I say ok you can play videogames now,have that toy back.My aunt says I'm a push over,I'm trying though.God Bless,Jen
When my son woke up he started talking about it being Nana's birthday.He asked about a cross necklace she had,and asked if I had found it for he wanted to take it for show&tell.I never found it.He wanted to take a small cedar box that she had given him and put some of her stuff in it,an angel courage worry stone,a marble angel,and a mustard seed of faith that I gave my mom.My Pap, that passed away a year ago, always told us that if you had the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains.I did call the pyschologist at his school,she's to booked up,but is going to try and have him see the counseler.But,I was relieved that he did discuss my mom.Limits,discipline whats that?My mom lived with us most of the time,she controlled the house,kept us all in check.I took care of her other needs.Jen
I see by reading some of your comments that you know a lot about children.My Mom passed away in august,my 5-year-old was very close to his Nana,she lived with us,off and on,his whole life.He's sensitive and very heart felt.Since her passing he's been mis -behaving,acting out.I try to get him to express his feelings about what happened,not having much luck.What do you suggest? For I want my son to be happy again!! Jen
