THE STRUGGLING PARENT!

I love my five children with my whole heart.  As a mom I have hit the stage where the first part of my heart has left the nest and is making a nest of her own with her Husband and my first Grandbaby (arriving this winter). Now I am living at home with not one but four teenagers.  Today one of the four decided to play me against my husband to start a fight because she didn't want to do as she was told.  I fell for it hook line and sinker.
