One bad mommy move....I've folded clothes while my kids are in the tub, even though they were old enough for me to yell every couple of minutes "you OK in there?" and they knew to respond IMMEDIATELY it still was a taboo move.
And some mommy truths.....I've smelt the milk and noticed just a slight "off smell" and when asked by the kids if it smelled OK...I responded "Yup...just fine! Now eat your breakfast."
I told my kids when they were young that it was illegal to drive on the highway with the windows down so that they would quit playing with the window buttons. My 12 year old was embarrassed when she announced that law to a car full of kids her age!
While eating miso soup at our favorite sushi restaurant with our kids, I told Kaia when she was 3 years old that the tofu squares in the soup were CHICKEN. She loved the 'chicken' and would always ask for my 'chicken' too! Good thing, because I don't really care for the 'chicken' in my miso soup! (At 12 she now knows it is Tofu. I had to tell her all my little white lies after the car window incident above so she wouldn't keep embarrassing herself around friends.)
Oh please, please, please share with me a tidbit from your Mommy Files! And have a wonderful weekend. Mine will be full of girlfriends, shopping, laughing, eating, crying, staying up late and being filled spiritually. Can't wait to share it all with you on Monday!
