  • Yes, very much so. She has an outgoing personality, and smiles and waves at most anyone. She gets a bit cranky with me at times, but that's because she is most comfortable with me. She's not afraid to express her feelings with me.

  • My mom always says to me, that if your kids behave better in front of others than they do at home, your doing something right.

  • I used to be a nanny and EVERY DAY when the parents came home, the kids suddenly grew a set of DEVIL HORNS!! They were the easiest kids to take care of and I rarely had to punish them. They were SOOO good!! But when their parents walked in the door they were totally different kids!!! And I have seen this SO many times.

    As far as MY kids go - my older 2 are very well behaved most of the time and always have been. My youngest (21 months) is another story. He's at that age where he tries to get away with everything when I am distracted and other people are around! lol
