I have to admit that parenting with a co-parent can be very frustrating.   I feel that I am talking to a wall sometimes.  I have tried to discuss consistency between homes and he acts like I am insane.  I just want us to be on the same page for our daughter.  I know that one day all the bitterness and resentment will fade into the back ground but for now I would like to know his opinion on how we raise our daughter.  He goes mute and it is very disturbing.  He is her father and I would like to hear his thoughts and I would like to know that we are doing the same things so that our daughter is not confused! I hope that he and I can establish some form of agreement soon!  Any ideas? Help!

Cooperative Parenting the "Class". This class is a 6 week session meeting one day a week for 2 hours for 6 weeks.I was pleased to discover that my situation was not as complicated or hurtful as others. I felt bad for those that were there and had horrible stories to tell. I am grateful that I can communicate with my co-parent. Although It is not a perfect situation and we need to mend some bridges we have come a long way. I wish he would have made an effort to be in class with me but we can't get everything we want can we?! :) I will discuss what I learned in the next post.

Being a Mother

In the January 31, 2011 issue of Time there was an interview with Michelle Williams. There was an answer that brought tears to my eyes and an out spoken "yes" in the room in which I sat.

The question:
What has been your most important role, and how has the experience changed you?

(Get's deeply profound)

Mother. Somebody once told me that being a parent is like dying and being reborn, which sounds drastic, but I understood what she meant. It's the thing that's most important to me. If I don't get that right, then nothing else really matters. I feel reborn as a human being in every way. There's not a part of my life that it hasn't touched.

Tears are in my eyes. Because that is how I feel exactly. Exactly!

Being a mother is everything to me. But, there are other things that are important too! I look forward to my future!!!
