Changing Priorities

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 9, 2012

Once I became a mother, I suddenly found that I had to devote 12 to 14 hours per day solely to nursing, burping, soothing, changing and bathing my newborn. Suddenly washing clothes (the baby's as well as mine which were often blasted with spit up and other nasty surprises), cleaning floors almost daily (babies and toddlers LIVED on the floor) sanitizing my kitchen and bathrooms added to the work load. Slap dash meals and quick showers at odd hours left little time for sleep.

At first I tried to do everything around the house that I had done before I became a mother. Even though I was... (more)

You Can't Get Everything Out of Books?

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 7, 2012

When I first met my future husband, I weighed 98 lbs. I had just graduated with an Honours Degree in English Literature from the University of Regina and considered continuing my studies as a graduate student. I loved everything about academia, especially the relaxed but challenging experience of reading Chaucer and Old English in the original vernacular with only one other student in a professor's office; this teacher was delighted to find two students interested in his life's work

I loved my life and didn't for see any changes. I had grown up with one sister, ballet lessons and a library... (more)

A Strong Mother and Son

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 4, 2012

There are times that can be very challenging and very frustrating, then there are those times where you just know you are the person that will be able to reach their pain, there is something in you that will touch their soul and being, and you will both be transformed. Somehow in the wisdom of this world, you were placed on the path you needed to be on. I was reminded of this recently and this is exactly why I keep doing... (more)

Angels of Entanglement

By p.d.adams, published on Mar 20, 2012

...mimic each other.

She codes a [culture anonymous technology="cat"] for curiosity.

Does harmony exist or, is it a simple singularity of lore such as tributary Indians once dealt with on the deltas. With her level of whistle and technology, she surely should rise up to care, right?

She has come upon, it seems, the lair of motherhood.

The Best Parents I Could Ever Ask For

By LiftingMeUp, published on Sep 5, 2010

Many years ago, I sat in my high school cafeteria, talking with friends. For some reason, the subject of mothers came up. My mother was immediately mentioned as the sweetest mom ever. Even girls I barely ever hung around loved my mom. She was just one of those people that made every kid feel special. She was the mom everyone wished they had. She was the mom I always wanted to be.

My friends and classmates loved my parents, even though my parents were never the "cool" parents. They didn't let me have wild, out of control parties. They had a very strict curfew for me. They didn't let me... (more)
