Me too!! I was in there deep also, but wide open now!! haha.
I have 3 children also My son is 19 ( a marine in iraq), my daughter is 17 (going on 25 and will be the death of me yet)!!! and my youngest is a 7 year old son that is spitting image of me everyone says.
I love them all dearly and had them thru marriages...yes I was married twice. I tried to please everyone else except me but I learned my lesson, everyone knows the truth now and accepts me for me and loves my partner to.
It all has worked out pretty well.
