Middle school with my boys was challenging

The most challenging part of  motherhood so far would have to be middle school with teenage boys. I know every kid is different, but for myself, when the boys went into middle school, it was very challenging. You’re still trying to figure out who you are and who your friends are.

We don’t hit our kids

We don’t beat our kids. That’s a definite. We 100 percent swore that off right from the start. The older generations certainly know what it feels like to grow up under that tactic, and it wasn’t pretty. Everything else is fair game. We do time outs, try to reason with them and are huge with taking things away. We specifically target things that plug in. Removing the iPad is the end of the world for my children. If I threaten that one – they listen!

There is a big gap between my kids

The perfect age gap between kids? With me, I don’t know. There was a big gap between my kids, the 19-year-olds and a 5-year-old. What’s good is I have a built-in babysitter. I love all the different stages.

I can’t prevent heartbreak

I’m most terrified of any of my kids suffering their first heartbreak. I know it’s bound to happen, but seeing them sad about a lost love will just kill me! Unlike a scrape or a cut, I feel like this kind of internal injury is something I can’t prevent or cure. There’s only so much a mom can do until we stand back and let our kids work through the hard times. I’m not looking forward to it!
