During t.v. time at night I've been crocheting. I've got about 5-6 projects going all at once. I'm not sure why I do that??? Part of me thinks it is so I don't get bored working on one project, but the other part of me thinks I just get so excited when I think of something that I want to make that I have to start it then and there or my brain will explode from obsessing about it.
Now, for the raising kids part. I have 5 adult children and they have turned out great. I now have 3 kiddo's at home. Ezie is 11. Need I say more? Out of all of the stages and ages of my kids, 11 seems to be the most trying age on me. I think that 11 year olds are irritable, antagonistic, mood swinging, opinionated, know-it-all ........ people. It was hard for me to actually type in the word people and not monster, but I do see a glimmer of my old child every once in awhile so I'll still hope their is a human being in there somewhere. Then to top it all of Ezie starts middle school in the fall. OMG! I remember middle school. I know I was very trying for my parents back then and I probably deserve everything I am getting. So I will try to be a patient mom. I will try to listen before I react. I will be firm, but give my child his wings.....slowly.....in baby steps. I'm not ready for this, but Ezie isn't waiting for me to get ready. He is on his way to becoming a young man who I know I will be very proud of and love him just as I did before he turned 11, I mean, as I do now.
