Overheard.

We had a friend's kid over for dinner tonight. I overheard one of the girls telling the guest that they have to finish ALL their dinner if they want ice cream after because I am REALLY strict.

Ummmm.....

Yeah,

Just call me Mommy Dearest.

Since when was THAT really strict?

Oh. That is very very strict. You are a hard one, indeed.

It's not. There are just a lot of parents not realling setting any rules anymore, and they're making the rest of us look bad. It's a reputation I can live with.

"I am not strict, I am logical. If you're not hungry enough to finish your plate, there's no reason for you to be hungry enough for ice cream ;)"

mmichele, definitely evil personified.


Hula, I too can live with this. I came to terms with my inner witch a long time ago, we're good good friends.

elPadawan, logic + children???? Not always a close tie there....

Funny the perception kids have of their own parents as well as other parents. My kids think my friend is a mean mom (they used to anyway) and her kids think I am more mean. Frankly, we are just as mean as each other becuase we share ideas.
