Slacker mom

In my perfect little world (in my mind) with my perfect little chilldrens (pronounced chill-drens with funny accent) life was well, perfect. Now of course this perfect little picture was formed in my mind when I was in my early twenties and children were not on my radar.

Now that life is here in my face I find myself doing a lot of things that I never, ever thought I would do in a million years. I will not even admit to them on a public blog as I just don't care to get into the potential for debates on it. What works for one may not work for another.

Anyway this post is brought to you by me reading a facebook post from a HS girlfriend about her daughter not wanting to eat veggies and that she *WILL* eat them as Mom is still boss. I suppose I might get a bee up my bonnet every now and then and I will be the *boss*...but... most of the time I just don't care. :X
I can tell you they wouldn't get a snack but I cannot get all worked up over something like that.

Now I admit I have gotten worked up over my 6 yr old really liking sloppy joes and telling me how much he likes them when I make them. Till I made them one night and he wanted something else. How he suddenly hated them and why to I make them *alllllllllllllllll the time. Now that was a battle that I fought and won. LOL

Did you find the same things to be true about your imagined kids not being anything like your actual kiddos?

  1. I have the reverse "problem." My kids love healthy food and I'm the one who will not try new things. :)
