  • I hope it's that I was tough in the areas of acting with integrity and honesty, fostered responsibility, supported them in positive endeavors and had a great sense of humor doing it! (But, right now, this is probably not how they would describe me~they are too young to appreciate me yet)

  • My police training is a fabulous asset lol. I'm pretty sure they'll remember weird comments I " I don't negotiate with hostages", "STOP RESISTING" and "Don't make me chase you..."

  • I am So go with the flow. I do NOT stress the small stuff, but am HUGE on respect. So long as they are respectful, they can pretty much do anything they want.

  • I will parent them regardless of who is watching! I have thrown fits at the store to show them what they look like (3-4 years) I will call them out in front of their friends, I use to drill march them through the parking lots to keep them in like and out from under others tires :) They have heard strangers call me out and seen me stick to my guns. I know this will leave a lasting impression!

  • My biggest asset is my husband. I think my children will look back and say "Wow, we were never able to play mama & daddy against each other. They were always united and supported each other." This is not something that I can say looking back to my parents. I KNEW how to play them. I think that is why I am so in tune to it as a parent.
