Sarah Palin On Motherhood: “Enjoy Every Single Moment”

2008 Republican Party Vice President nominee Sarah Palin recently sat down with and dished about her family and motherhood. The 48-year-old mama of Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig opened up about life in Palin household, those dreaded teenage years and one piece of advice she hopes all mothers will listen to.

On her advice to mothers: “Enjoy every single moment. It sounds cliché but it’s so true that they grow up so quickly. Our oldest is 23 – he is deployed in Afghanistan right now, a 21 year old, 17 year old, 11 year old and 4 year old. So we have the benefit of being able to experience with our little ones, anew… fresh… knowing… a lot of what they will be going through… in their older years, so we so appreciate every day of the young childhood years because we know it goes so quickly. But every stage is wonderful, enjoyable. And it may seem like a lot of work right now, but… it’s worth it!”

On her children: “They help out so well. We are very, very blessed to have a very large and supportive family, especially with the older siblings helping out with the little ones. We have five generations out there in Alaska, family members helping out.”

On the teenage years: “It’s…it’s exciting and teenagers keep you young… keep you plugged in to what’s going on in our culture – literally. I can’t even pick a favorite stage or year of the kid’s lives. It’s all been amazing and enjoyable.”

    lol. Because – of course – people will take parenting advice from Sarah Palin. x

    • Jackie

      Well, Anabelle, I would, OF COURSE, be honored to receive parenting advice, or ANY advice, from Sarah Palin. If you, along with all the rest of the sheep, had managed to take even ONE MOMENT to do some actual research regarding this brave and wise woman’s stellar record of service, you might have discovered, for YOURSELF, her unfailing commitment to God, country and family. I am ashamed of and for you, as I am for all those who form opinions based on calculated smear campaigns, deliberate sabotage, lurid gossip and barefaced lies.

        Lol thanks I really needed that laugh.

        What about the people that just listened to her talk? The only thing I would listen to her about would be how to snowball America and become a millionaire after only one year as governor of Alaska. Lol

        Her commitment to god is exactly why we shouldn’t listen to her, we need a role model with a good grasp on reality.

        It seems to me that you are the one who believes the hype. I see comments but no facts to back up what you say. Sarah Palin spent more money on herself than other political candidates using her Pac money – her reason for creating the Pac in the first place. This is a fact and she was criticized for it. Google it if you want. She claims to be a supporter for disabled kids, but has contributed virtually nothing to the cause aside from a lot of lip service. Fact. She is also a horrible mother. She is not blamed for Bristol’s pregnancy because obviously Bristol has free will. But her son Track and Willow were both caught for vandalism and we all have EYES and EARS and those who saw her children on either Sarah Palin’s Alaska or Life is a Tripp (both shows where Palin is credited as a producer) can see how horrible those kids behave. Willow’s boyfriend was allowed to go up to her bedroom and Bristol’s claim to fame is bitching constantly about giving birth to a son who she now uses as her meal ticket – all the while either staying in a mansion or her own new house. As for being a religious woman, again fake. Bristol herself said her family rarely goes to church. And when Palin asked a group to hold hands with her to pray, Willow blurted out what a fake her mother is. These are all facts. Look them up if you don’t believe me. Seriously, someone on this site either works for C4P or is a huge Palin supporter who keeps trying to shove her shit down our throats. From the looks of the comments, this person is failing royally.

    …Before they get pregnant

    • Janna

      Do you really see the fact that her teen got pregnant as a parenting failure?

  • anonymous

    She’s no role model and has no respect for helpless animals. Give them a fighting chance at least. Shooting them from helicopters is a coward’s way.

    After watching Bristol’s show, I really think that Sarah does not spend that much time with her kids on a daily basis. They seem to roam free and do whatever they want, and she pops in and out when she is in town. It’s actually sad. I know she works hard and believes in what she does, but still. there should be a limit.

    Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled last year? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin isn’t in this race and won’t be at the RNC because too many people now know the truth.

    Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the BIGGEST cover up in world history before it disappears forever.

    • Janna

      The truth about…….. what?

  • Palin is the ultimate political strip-tease, thrusting and rubbing her self all over a White House column. The dollars rain down and she gives them another sneak peek at what’s under that dress. See just how nasty America’s Top MILF will get for the cash at
