Confessions of teens mom #8

Weird crazy emotions! Blessed that my
Kid is alive and well! Just finished one of the toughest assignment a parent has to do for the Every 15 Minute Program. Glen and I were asked to write an obituary for Brent. Without knowing how to write one, we looked up a few examples but Glen took over and wrote a beautiful obituary. I just cried! The fear of losing one of my kids is just unbearable. It is my hope that Brent and Victoria, and all the other teenagers, will take the hard lessons  being taught to heart and think twice before doing something stupid.
Please help me to continue to have strength and patience to raise smart young man and woman so they can make good decisions as they grow and become more independent. 

(Lots of love!)

Confessions of teens mom #7


June 10, 1997 my little boy came to this world after being late and with extra help from doctors (once labor started, he came in an hour!) the first months were terrifying... You know... Being new parent! But thank God, he was perfect, my life was perfect! A wrestler from birth and after many years of practicing, participating in different tournaments, a break in here and there, Brent wrestled hard during his 4 years at Ripon High School. I am a proud mama of this young man for all the time he dedicated to the program. Also thankful for the wonderful coaches that guided him through all four years. 
To new adventures!

Brent's freshman year… He helped secure the TVL win for RHS!

Confessions of Teens mom #6

What can I say? My son drew this during art class. His caption brought me to tears. So true! During teenage years it seems that happens often, and a hundred times more as we embark on different journeys through out our lives. "Love people who hurt us" powerful... To my 2 kids... Never forget that I will always love you even when we don't see eye to eye and say things that needs to be said. Brent and Victoria, never forget to love yourself, your family, and those around you. So proud of both of you!

After 2 hours trying to find a way to keep all my pictures and videos I had posted on Facebook, I finally transferred and at 2:12pm today, I deleted my Facebook. I am proud of myself for sticking to what I think will be the best decision I have made in forever. To my freedom!

Goodbye Facebook

After years on the crazy world of Facebook and numerous threat of disconnecting, I am finally saying goodbye. I haven't felt so free and so in control in a long time. After weeks of staying away I can now delete without hesitation. Doesn't that sound sad? How can this web world control someone life like this? Why you ask... Done with drama, cattiness, heartaches, and headaches. To being free, happy, and in control!!!!!! 

You can follow me on Instagram.... Alinew76 or good old email...

Peace ✌️

Confessions of teens mom #5

Remember when you were a teenager and you fell head of heels for the boy or girl? First love is wonderful!!!! No one listens to anyone but then come the heartbreak where life is just OVER! I remember going through it and counting on my friend to help it make it better. Back in the day we didn't have social media where we could vent or txt messages where we could let the other read our feelings. So glad I didn't have that because I don't know how I would have handled. 
Today, I sat with my boy and try to explain life and the future... So hard to break someone's heart and have your heartbroken. But life is beautiful and choices we make today has an ever lasting impact. 
To my son and daughter, life is great make the most of it. Study hard, devote to your high school years because it will fly by, and never forget... Friends come and go but family is forever! Love you babies and thank you son for allowing me to be there through your hard times. 
Mama bear!
