I’ve got a book due tomorrow, so today’s an easy blog–hey, it’s LABOR DAY weekend. I’m supposed to slack off! So enjoy “The Mom Song,” and let me know if this is the first time you’ve heard it. I’ve heard it several times, and each time, I vow I’m going to memorize it. But I keep saying that about the “Thriller” dance, too, and still haven’t done THAT.
Have fun, and if you recognize yourself in this song, then congratulations: you’re a mom. Welcome to the ranks of billions of moms who’ve told their kids to eat their vegetables and sit up straight.
Hi, I’m Kieran. My family loves music and anything that makes us laugh out loud. I try to teach my kids that we have to actively choose happiness–and if I accomplish nothing else as a mom but pass that one lesson along to them, then I think I’ve done my job.
My oldest guy, Dragon, was diagnosed in kindergarten with Asperger’s syndrome, and now he’s a junior in college; his sister Indie Girl, who’s younger by 16 months, is a college sophomore; and my youngest, Nighthawk, is in ninth grade. For our family, it’s about managing your weaknesses and wringing everything you can get out of your strengths. And along the way, finding joy.
