I make sure we have a full half hour to read bedtime stories before bed! With all her activities, sometimes this isn't always possible :(

I spend quality time with my children. Each week my children pick a day in the week to spend one-on-one time with me; we basically do whatever the child wants to do on that day without the other children interrupting our hour together.

I have enough energy to do all the things required to me in my day and still have enough energy to play catch or tag or any other active game with my kids.

God only gives us what he knows we can handle. Trust in Him.

I get up before my kiddo and do my hour pilates dvd. I do it in the dark so the only light comes from the tv. All I can hear is the guitar, the waves, and the voice of the instructor. It switches positions fast enough that I don't have time to get in my own head, and yet at the end of my hour I feel like I've had some meditative me-time.

That's not even taking into consideration that it is doing good things for my physique...

I feel like I am a better parent when I look at my two special needs sons and they have achieved so much more than was expected. My oldest son has Autism. He did not speak until he was five years old and at that time he only repeated what was said to him. It has been a lot of hard work, but today he is a Sophomore in a Public High school. He is doing work that is at or above his grade level. Most importantly, he is a happy young man. My youngest son has ADHD with a lot of sensory issues, however he goes to a public elementary school and reads and does math well above his grade level. Both of my boys are happy and tell me that they love me. I am a single mother so I am all they have. I am so glad that I have my boys!emoticon

I set apart special time for each child. My son and I recently had "date night". I really enjoy one on one time, and I also enjoy those times when the 3 of us just talk. Talk about anything, and everything... We cry together, we laugh together. Our talks have made us a very close family. They started when the kids were just starting to talk. We'd cuddle in bed at the end of the day, and just talk about whatever was on their minds.

My boys will always know that they are #1 in my life! If they call, I drop what I'm doing, when I've been @ work, I let the boss know, my kids come 1st. I alway have told them that they can do & be whatever they want & I believe it. I never put them down & I NEVER scolded/repremanded them in public!
The most important thing: I tell them I love them & hug them ALL of the time, no matter how old. And to this day @ 21 & 23 we always say "I love you", it's important to me that my kids ALWAYS know in words & actions that I love them. Sometimes it's the small things, my son is coming home for a couple of days, I'm making banana bread for him or the big things, my oldest was 70 miles away & broke his nose, a couple days after surjury (ofcourse, I was there), he called & asked me to come get him & bring him home so he could relax, I took the afternoon off, got in the car & was there! And they know, no matter how far, I alway will be. I don't complain about it or ever bring it up, I just do it. I'm not a perfect mom, I make mistakes, but my boys know that I love them & they are #1!
