"Something BIG is about to happen i can feel it in my bones!!! "

I like that quote of yours. It goes along with mine.

Yep, your last post was almost 6 months ago. It has been a while. We've got a good handful of newer regular posters that you'll see over the next few days. Plus, the forum has more Moderators now of which, myself and Creolelady are very "avid" so daily bring stories in a little more frequently then in the past to give everyone a little more to read, learn from and post to.

Welcome back

Well, Merlin, where have you been all this while? I remember reading some of your posts when I first joined. That was back in Dec. 2004. So happy that you decided to come back to us!
I do look forward to those thought provoking posts! cheesy

Hi All,
For some reason I missed this post before.
Well, as for me, I'm a 43 year old mom of 3 boys.
I've been married 12 years.
I raise and train horses.
I mostly ride English; hunters, jumpers and dressage. But, my boys like the cowboy stuff, so I'm learning a new style again. Lots of fun, I get to fall again!
I live in Missouri, about 30 miles east of KC, and a mile from the mighty Mo. But, I was born and raised in Michigan till I was 24.
I like to hike, bike, ride, and most outdoor activities. I even used to ski and go snowmobiling in Michigan, but there's not enough snow here. Now we swim and boat more here. Don't really miss the snow much anymore.
I even like to sit outside and watch the stars if someone is with me.
I am trying to remodel my house, and build a new barn. Hopefully even buy more property and build new would be even better.
I've had many experiences in my life from the time I was three, till now. Some of which I have written here. I've had several spiritual experiences also, and precognitive dreams, (dreamt of all my Christmas presents one year before I opened them! Not as exciting and fun as a child would normally think it would be. Kind of ruined it for me that year.)
I'm shy in person, till I get to know people. But getting better about that. Learning to have confidence in myself.

Oh hearing of some of your real life jokes; here's a good one!
When I was younger, I went to a concert till the wee hours of the morning, but when I got home, I had to be to work in 1 hour. (I worked at a hospital at that time, and had to get up at 5 am.)
Well, I prayed to God that night to "help me wake up!" Cuz I just knew I'd have a hard time waking up after just one hour of sleep.
So I fall asleep and start having this dream!
My mother hooks a bomb up to an old rotory telephone, in which when she dials 3 certain numbers, the bomb will go off!
So she dials the first number and lets go, and so forth till she gets to the 3rd number. When she lets go, my alarm clock goes off!!!
My covers flew to the ceiling! and I threw the alarm clock across the room! They say God is a humorous God, I can just imagine him up there a snickering! "You wanted me to wake you up!" And boy I was too! Never been more wide awake in my life!

Funny, and good story. It's amazing how that can happen, like you can keep track of time to the second unconciously. I'm 43 also, grew up near Philly, lived in California now 25 yrs. Son 19, Daughter 22. We are glad to have your wisdom here. English riding is popular out here!

I started when I was older having children. Mine are almost 11, 6 and almost 5.
My dad got a good laugh out of the story when I came down the stairs in a huff!
Not sure how it happened, I give God credit for it. Don't think I'm that imaginative on my own! Some have said I probably heard my alarm clock go off already when the dream started. I'm not very familiar with the working of the mind in the dream state, so I can't say for sure. Just that it worked for it's purpose at that time!

Kids are great at that age. They grow up so fast, at 16 nowadays, they are grown, responsible and somewhat independant. That surprised me, I thought it would happen around 18. But they start driving and they earned it so they have great freedom, and we see them less around the house. They get their own lives earlier and earlier it seems, how far can it go? Is this "evolution" really normal at the pace we've seen in 50 yrs? Makes one wonder. Computers may make kids smarter? What do you think? huh smiley

The world is a tough place, even for us old farts. wink
I wish kids could enjoy the innocence of childhood for a little while longer----- Guess those days are gone.

But then again, some kids have always been forced to grow up 2 soon--- and many turned out to be great folks smiley

I credit the computer age for supplying some of the information out there, but as far as kids growing up quicker, I really think that is society and the environment they are in now. My 5 year old is already learning how to run a computer at his school! So it's us, as parents and teachers that is teaching them at an earlier age about this stuff. I was a senior in high school before the computer was even available to us. And then it was just punch cards! My son in 5th grade is also learning math that I didn't do until I was in 8th grade and high school!
I'm not against the kids learning new stuff, and if they can handle it, great, but I'm alarmed at the number of kids who can't and fall behind. And even worse, I am worried about the attitude that seems to come with this knowledge that the kids are to be more responsible, and grown up! There's a possibility, that we are pushing that too, as we remember how responsible and grown up we were when we had this information available to us, instead of thinking what age we learned it, and what responsibilities we had at their ages. Myself, I don't like it, and don't think it's healthy. All the stress that my kids go through is just outrageous at their age. They worry about things they shouldn't have to worry about. But in order for my kids to compete fairly with their peers and not be teased for being immature, I have to make sure they are responsible, and grown up quick too. I don't like it, but there's not much else I can do. It's a double edged sword!

so true ladyfreedom,
these days more than so requires parents to diligently watch and keep an eye on kids, what theyre learning, where theyre at, what theyre doing. Not saying theyre worse than when we were young, just that having so much more knowledge, just remember predators also have more knowledge as technology grows.

I say also enjoy them while theyre YOUNG and still at home. I miss my son soooo much. He'll be 29 this year. He is like my hubby's and my best friend/son. We've always treated him like an adult as he was growing up. Maybe not an adult but as an equal when he was in his teen years and younger. He's grown up to be one mighty fine young man with good Christian morals and a love for his job and for people. He's called us by our first name since he was 12 or so , cant even recall. To us its normal, even tho to others its not, works for us. But he lives 3 and a half hours away and is so busy with his work that we miss him alot. THe free time that he does have he spends with his girlfriend although she loves it when we go up to austin to spend time with them.
still, not the same as when theyre younger, for me the toughest part was when he left to austin 10 yrs ago. OUCH! talk about empty nest syndrome! BUT i got over the ENS quickly since i found out years ago that WOW , when theyre gone, you have soooo much more money LEFT over after every paycheck (has to be a paranormal phenomenon i think) and now it was MINE. grin ah kids , gotta love them.

grin LOL, boy don't I know how true that is!!
It was hard at first to think of all the freedoms I had when I was single and living home, and now being stuck in the house with babies to rock. I gained about 100 pounds too!
But now I just take them everywhere with me. Hikes, bike ride, horse riding etc... It helps now that they aren't babies anymore, and I feel a little more free than when I was stuck in a rocking chair. (I love babies, but I wouldn't go back to that time for anything! I love the age they are at now, where they can actually do things with me, fish, camp, all that good stuff!)
But now my financial expense has quadrupled (sp) if not more!
"Mom, I need another $100 for school projects!" Ugh! Oh and lets not forget the allowances, and payments for A's on their report cards! When did a quarter loose it's value? huh wink

Cute clock story. They wanted to make sure that you got to work on time so you wouldn't be a ding-a-ling. Yuk, yuk.

About kids. I want my baby back. She's growing up way too fast. Only 13 and taller then me. She was just a baby yesterday. Oh well, *sigh*. Can't change some things.

Ya know what I did recently with her. Some parents would disagree with this but you have to have an open mind for this.

I remember my first boyfriend and I still have the same feelings when I think about him and those days. The feelings are always there. Anyway, this is something I feel is a very important experience at that stage. All of her friends have boyfriends at school except for her because she's little miss goody two shoes. (That's what they call her) So, I started bugging her about getting a boyfriend. Harmless stuff, they just hang out at school. But just the same, I didn't want her to miss out on that experience. She'll be 14 this August and she is VERY mature for her age. Probably due to a 52 year old mommy. Who knows. Anyway, she more recently got a boyfriend and boy, she comes home from school knowing I am going to want to talk about her day and her face is just glowing. It's so cute.

Mine aren't quite at that age yet. But, my hubby's friends warn us that we've got lots of fun stuff in store for us in the not to distant future. Like girls calling and coming over all hours of the day and night. Hmm, maybe I should start taking vitamins now! wink
My oldest is just starting to look at girls that way, but he's really shy and doesn't have a lot of self esteem.
When he was in 4th grade last year when he went to an art show. (his drawing was picked for the show, I'm so proud!!) After the show, the 6th grade choir had a concert they were giving, and had Hawaiian, music and dance. There were 3 young Hawaiian girls in the front of the dance group, and it was obvious my son was really "moved" by them! He wanted to take a picture of them so bad, but was too embarrassed to. Now all he talks about is wanting to go to Hawaii! He even wants to move there!
We also had a blushing moment concerning a nude statue at the state capitol too. So cute!

I deliberately slowed my children down and encouraged them to enjoy the carefree attittude of childhood. I wanted them to take it slower because too soon they have to face the adult world of responsibility and stress. I didn't let my older children start driving until they were nineteen because in our area the kids get out on the road pretty young and there are unfortunately a large number of them dead now. My older children are 24, 23, 20 and my little one is seven. The older ones have all done fine with waiting and enjoying time with mom when they were been driven places. Too often, that was our only chance to have good discussions together. My younger one is trying to grow up a little faster, but I am going to do all I can to get him to slow down and enjoy every moment with all the magic in childhood. The responsibility will come fast enough anyway.
