My son went with his father and bought this really silly cartoon network hat. Well, I'm a terrible mother and he wants to go live with his father because, I won't let him wear the hat to school. I just think it's a silly hat and I feel he needs to spend more time focusing on school and less time focusing on trying to be silly and different. The hat looks like something someone would buy for a two year old and I don't think a 11 year old boy should be wearing something like that. Since, he has changed the way he dresses his grades in school have dramatically dropped. He already wears all the crazy concert t-shirts and crazy sunglasses, I don't want him to turn out to be one of those kids with gauges in their ears or bar piercings in his eyebrows or lips. I believe a child should be able to express their individuality to a certain extent. I don't think there is anything wrong with the kids who put gauges in their ears or do the bar piercings. I just don't my son to do it. I don't think a teenager is old enough to make a decision like that. Gauges and piercings are permanent and I don't want him to make a decision he will regret later or interfere with his success of finding a job when he is an adult. What do you think?

You may know, I have dedicated the month of February to Bringing The Love Back in your marriage or relationship. I know you may already know about all the topics I am discussing for the month of February, or maybe not. But, sometimes we need to be reminded of how to have a happy marriage or relationship. Sometimes we forget to take care of the person we love and forget that even though we are married we still have to work on our relationship. The month of February is for lovers. Why not may the changes in your relationship the will last all year long. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions; I would love to hear from you.
Enjoy One Another
One of the common mistakes couples make in marriage is they forget to have fun together. Having fun together is essential to having a happy marriage. Goof around together; don't be so serious all the time. Be frisky and flirt with one another. Couples are so caught so caught up in daily life they forget to make time alone for one another. Make time for one another at least once a month. Go shopping; go out to dinner or a movie without the children. Look at your budget and see which weekend would be the best weekend to have a date night find a babysitter and spend time alone with your loved one. If you go out to a reasonable restaurant, a dinner for two can be inexpensive. There are several restaurants you two can go out to dinner to and have a couple of drinks and still keep the bill under $40.00. If that is not in your budget, send the kids to a relative’s house for a couple of hours or the night. Have dinner at home and maybe watch a movie together. It is not about how much you spend. It is about staying in touch with each other on a personal level and getting to know each other all over again.
