They Only Have One Mom
Hi Dr. Laura:
I wanted to let you know of a proud moment that happened recently. I was at a baby shower with my grandma (who will be 90 in a few months). We were talking about being a stay-at-home mom, and she told me that staying home is something that I will never regret. I agreed. My cousin who works full time and rarely sees her kids except on the weekend jumped in and said to me: "I don't know how you do it. I was getting ready this morning and my two kids were all over me and wouldn't leave me alone." To which my grandma said "That's because you are never there. All they want is your attention. You should be ashamed for complaining that the children you birthed want your attention. They only have one Mom. Remember that!"
I wanted to applaud. Thanks for all you do, Dr. Laura. You're the reason that I stay at home with my three boys, who are one, five, and nine years old. I go crazy every day, but I absolutely love it.
Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
