Remember to Have Fun, Moms

Hi Dr. Laura,

Recently on one of your podcasts, I heard an insightful call with the mom of 4 children who was yelling all the time.

My husband and I have 4 sons and I must admit our home was "delightful chaos". Each night the mess was barely cleaned up to enjoy our space the next day, but our kids slept soundly. We have raised 4 amazing, God-fearing, country-loving good young men (now in their 20's) who will enjoy their children, if they are so blessed.

Finally my home is clean but I must admit I miss the mess!

I have no regrets. We did not miss a moment of hugs, playtime, stories, or quiet reflective moments with them. And guess what?  Not one of them remembers the disarray... just the forts, friends and love.

Thanks so much for encouraging the moms of children that may one day be my kids' friends or my daughters-in-law!

Much admiration,

Deb and "The Guys"
