Murderous Turkeys

Like The 3D Posters Of The 80's Only Worse

by: Sharon DeVellis

There was a storm last night which means the chances that a child would make their way into my bed at some point was high.  Sure enough, around 4:00 a.m. as the thunder started to rock and roll, I felt the gentle tap, tap, tap of Son No. 1 trying to wake me up as gently as possible. Sometimes too gently.  He once stood beside his dad tapping him for 1/2 an hour.

He climbed into bed fully loaded with stuffed animals and cuddling pillows and after about an hour, fell asleep.

Always End Your Conversations With Love

Take a Moment Today

by: Sharon DeVellis

Ten years ago, my mom died suddenly leaving a gaping hole in the lives of everyone who loved her. Tomorrow is her birthday, she would have been 70.

Even though it's been a decade, I still can't believe she's gone. That she never met Son No. 1 and Son No. 2.  That she's just no longer here on this earth.

Sharon has been with YMC since the very beginning and is now the Senior Writer where she maintains the YMC voice which sounds very similar to the voice in her head. It seems being crazy has finally paid off.

She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you will probably relate, so welcome.
