  • well all the 'bad' things from my past that I would HATE for them to do... follow in THOSE footsteps.... happend long before I met hubby so they dont know about those things. The mom they have grown up with, the person they see... sure they can follow in those foot steps... id be proud.

  • I think I've done pretty good so far.

    they can follow me if they want. but if they want to take their own paths.....to each their own.
