I have so many thoughts and random bouncy balls in my brain my dear friend suggested I get on it and start writing these things down. We'll call her "Red" which would be short for Red Haired Goddess Warrior! She is one of the few rare cheerleaders I have in my life and friend extraordinaire. Red gave me the inspiration for the title and the encouragement that I might have something of value to share. So here we go...

What should we talk about first...oh! I know lets talk about having older children. Why didn't anyone warn me about this??!! I have 5 amazing and wonderful children. 3 out of the 5 are over the age of 18. I love them and I want to punch them all in the face! Who is keeping this secret? No one, not even my parents have said you think it's bad now just wait! It's like watching a train wreck. You talk and talk and talk and they go and do the complete opposite. Oh you meant don't do this...or you were telling her that, not me. I'm much smarter and can handle it. Now that they are older, I must be speaking less English and more alien because they just don't get it. I'm sure my parents felt this way. Maybe that's the key.
Secretly it's about revenge! Haha! They are looking at us and our children with a bowl of buttery popcorn and a box of red vines. Tune in next week for another exciting episode. 
La sigh. For the first time in my life I paused. I thought if  I had known, I would have only had one child. If I had know about all the stress and anguish and heartache I would continue to endure when I reached the "finish line" I would have only had one. 
I always knew I was going to get married and have children. I wanted an even number. So everyone would have a partner to ride with at Disneyland. I know I'm crazy. That's a whole other story for another day. 
It is a struggle. We have good days and bad days. I had read a lot of books when they were little. I was always looking to learn so I could be the best mom I could be. However, I don't think there are books for raising adult kids. At least not ones that I'm aware of. Some one needs to get on it. These sweet moms with precious little ones have no idea what heart break they have in store.  Some one needs to tell these amazing moms, not to lose yourself. Always remember who you were before you had children and to take care
of you. You'll be a better mom if you do.
I'm always thankful to God that they take turns having a meltdown or some crisis so I can take it in stride. God knows my limit. Thank you Lord!
At the end of day if I know where they are at or if they are physically in my house. I know they have been fed and are safe then I can crawl into my bed and smile knowing I gave them everything I've got. I can sleep and hopefully rest to fight another day.

Well there you have it. My first shot into the world of writing. From my heart into the universe...
~ Love, Head Looney
