I know what you mean. My son started walking at about 9 1/2 months. Breastfeeding him just got creepy after that. I had nightmares about him remembering my girls. Not a needed memory.

Careful, the anti-peanutbutter mommies are going to get you.

Dear SSKKC: Sounds like you have figured it out - All that matters is the love. My kids are grown. I raised my one son to 8 and then divorced . . . and when I remarried . . . I opened my life to four stepchildren.

I know first hand . . . kids will forget so many of the things we do . . . even the mistakes we make . . . but the one thing that will remain . . . is if they felt loved and accepted just because they are alive. Just because!

No greater gift than hugs . . . and no better parenting than taking the time to "just listen."

My generation had this debate going over "quality time." I woke up one day and told my friends - KISS MY GRITS - that is a misnomer. There is no such thing as "quality time." What the heck did that mean, anyway? Is there quality time and then - substandard time? Time is time. It doesn't take time to give a hug, wipe a tear, or listen to a concern. Being pasted to your parents doesn't mean anyone is enjoying it. But knowing your parents are there to listen when you have something to share or need advice . . . that is what counts. Doing the little things doesn't count as quality if you are doing them begrudgingly. And doing the little things w/ love - then they become immensely important . . .

What is the deal these days? Everything has to be qualified and quantified? Hmmmm. Now let me think.

Maybe we should come up with yet another acronym . . . this time . . . not for SAHM but for Slacker Stay at home mom - I guess that would be SSAHM.

Oh please. EVERYONE knows that a Real Mommy would chew the food herself, and then give it to the baby. Wouldn't want to contaminate it with a food processor now, would we?

Well, not so bad as my slacker neighbor. She has two little ones and the cleaning service was there Saturday. Then the caterer. She is not self-sacrificing enuff.

If she wants to have a party, she should be making all those appetizers on her own . . . and since she is at home . . . she should be cleaning up on her own, too. What a SLACKER MOMMY she is.
