  • I have grown up to be like my Mom and my Step Dad in a lot of ways. Other ways, not so much. But, the ways that I did get from them I am thankful for, because they are and always have been my heroes.

  • No I wasn't supported with what i wanted and had the opportunity to do in high school cause my mom is was so hung up on stereo types and still is. I swore I would never do that to my kids. I have been 100% behind my kids in what ever they chosen to pursue. One daughter wants to be a tattoo artist and art teacher while my other daughter is looking at fashion design, floral design and culinary. My artist is in a main stream high school with a great art program and my designer chef is going to a vo-tech to get a head start on trade. I will told til the day i die how my mom does not think my decisions are the best for my kids cause she doesnt understand.

  • I suppose there is a litle of both of my parents in my parenting style. Both of them have passed away in the last six years, and so it has become more apparent to me~ as my kids get older (the teen years) I hear my mother's words leave my mouth & sometimes I get where she was coming from when I was young, and other times, I gulp and promise myself to try differently!
