Ive been soo neglectful

Hello my friends. I have been so neglectful. I mean wow, so much has happened on Mom Madness since May of last year. Im almost ashamed to even talk to you all. First of all, I moved and that took up alot of my time. We are now in a great apartment not too far from our old home but far  enough for the morning madness to be even worse.

My oldest is now in Middle School. She is in a Gifted and Talented Program. Its alot of work and she claims to hate it. She loves her teachers and loves the program but its challenging and that is what she needs.  My middle daughter is in 4th grade and this year has been very difficult for her...and me. My little sweet one is in the second grade. Still as happy go lucky as ever.  Its amazing to have a child who actually listens. The other day I told my oldest to put her hands down, well my seven year old thought I was talking to her and immediately put her hands at her sides, I was shocked and amazed. This doesnt usually happen in our home.

However the saddest and most heart breaking thing that happened is that my beautiful mother passed away on December 26, 2010. When I last posted on this blog last May, she was alive and well. Doing her thing. Cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, taking care of her hair..gardening, walking, living and loving life. She never complained. She was strong, honest, caring, loving, exceptionally beautiful. Smart. I miss so her so much. My heart aches so badly each day. I know she is in a better place. She is with her Lord. She is with her mother, Aunts and Cousins. all of whom have missed her as much as we will. I still cannot believe I will never see her again. Im comforted by the fact that it happened now that Im an adult with my own children as opposed to being a child. I cant imagine living in that house without my mother..
