‘I used to be the one they went to for all the things. The one-stop shop for food and comfort and love.’: Mother of teenagers says ‘it’s all a blessing… every bit’

“I used to make breakfasts for kids in footie pajamas, swinging their legs at my kitchen counter. Now, I make four frozen pizzas at once, trying to keep up with how much these tall kids are eating. I used to stay up at night worrying about what they ate that day. Now, I stay awake hoping they are driving safely.”

‘I was short-tempered. I yelled excessively. I couldn’t tolerate the messes. I’m a better mom when I work outside the home.’: Mom admits ‘I put in a full day at work and came home a new woman’

“I wish I could be the super mom with the crafts and baked goods and patience to listen to my kids explain a play-by-play of their basketball game but…I am just not that person. I love them with a love I didn’t know existed, but I have not been a good mom the last few months.”
