I am an awesome mom of 5 kids. They are 24, 19, 16, 4 and 3. I started them on cereal at 4 months. They all have all their shots, my first slept on his tummy because there was no "back to sleep" rule in 1986. I love them, held them, nursed them and cared for them. I also disciplined them, let them learn and grow, I let them be responsible for their own actions, and face the consequences. I did not give them everything they asked for, I had the nerve to say NO. I went and go to ball games, and school plays and violin concerts. I helped them move out on their own, I helped them enroll in college. I have little ones in bible school, yep flaming christian family here! I enforce bed time, and house rules and curfews. I limited tv and what they where exposed to. I took them for birth control when my oldest two asked for help. I have not lost a kid yet, so I don't think I am doing too bad.
