christmas with karen Being an adoptee, I’ve never the best of luck with mothers in any form..(bio..adopted..step)… 960but you only have one….. well .. in my case you have like three. What I have learned from all my moms is how NOT to be a certain way…. how to break a cycle… and for that I am thankful.  I am also thankful for the friends who have shared their moms with me and my family and treated us like your own. THANK YOU!

How do you raise kids and teach them not to lie? If you did something wrong.. own up to it. Lying about it gets you in trouble even more. Case in point… we have a Netflix account (who doesn’t?). For ages 14+ I have the account password protected. Some how… someone has been watching shows 14+. I don’t have a problem with the show…. I have a problem with lying about how you were able to watch it. So I asked the oldest. He said it just pops on and he doesn’t have to enter a password. So I had him show me and guess what.. low and behold the password page pops up. And of course… this is a surprise to him because it’s never done that before.
