    Way to go me Milestone after milestone and no emotion Not even an emoticon Your last kid at elementary school Have you been crying all morning Hmmm all I could think about was the extra hour I would have in the morning It s like Daylight Savings Time All year long Can you believe your son is starting high school How do you feel Fine Isn t he supposed to start high school I can hear the Tin Man singing If I only had a heart Until now Scarecrow had been my favorite Suddenly I have a new respect for Tin Man But there are things that make me cry a lot The day to day happenings of life creep in choking me up in ways I can barely understand or articulate My dearest mommy friends and I have a list of these things dancing counselors at dropoff lines parades who doesn t love a good cry at a parade children s high voices singing the school song Oh and the teacher who helped my son so much in elementary school Yeah she caught my eye during the graduation slideshow bring on the Kleenex and please let me not make any loud guttural noises So what gets me is clearly not what gets everyone else Is my gene pool deficient Am I lacking empathy Don t I care Some would argue yes I do not care I ve spent a lot of time wondering why I didn t get teary at my son s high school graduation watching him walk across the stage grinning ear to ear Not a tear But the severely handicapped young lady accepting her diploma There are no words for the complicated emotions that welled up inside of me And that s when I realize what

  • One Mom, Two Spouses (It's Not What You Think) - Your Teen Magazine for Parents
    This is the person who gets it Does it get any more perfect I remember the day I met my work spouse Sue like it was just yesterday We were in the Denver airport We talked about where we were from both from the East Coast we talked about our children and we talked about well you know all the things you talk about when you re falling in love It s just that this time I was already married with three kids Doesn t it always happen when you aren t looking for it Like all great romances ours started as a friendship As the months and years passed we fell into a comfortable rhythm She finished my sentences I ordered her coffee and almost got it right so many checked boxes on that Starbucks cup who could keep track We both loved words and jotted down misused and made up words while attending various meetings We loved our blended family 4 boys and 4 girls even better than the Brady s We loved our jobby We were even the same religion so I was pretty sure my mother in law would approve Sue and I could talk for hours which was really like one long conversation interrupted 27 times throughout the day With my work spouse the toilet seat stays down and we share a love of yogurt and granola Our business grew our love blossomed and it was clear that this relationship was like a marriage well a marriage with the toilet seat down and a mutual love of yogurt and granola Even our husbands were alike both family guys who shared a passion for fueling the Nevada economy They even have the same fantasy which doesn t include either of us together or separate that s
