  • For the most part I am. I do have my moments of insanity, but everyone does.

  • Sometimes... I am stricter than I thought I could be and less patient than I was before having our son but I am a pretty good balance I think - hope -

  • negative. I am neurotic and very high stress. I try hard to not let my kids see it.... but let's face it, kids see everything

  • i am calm and relaxed in my parenting, infact so much that ive managed to bottle all my daily stress deep within myself that i now get panic attacks from all the unresolved stress. im good at hiding that as well, nobody knows about my anxiety but me. i walk around with a happy, calm front everyday.

  • I do! I have other moms say to me, "you're pretty laid back, aren't you." Ha haaa! I'm not sure what they REALLY think of me, but that is what they say.

  • No way. I'm not super high strung or anything but I wouldn't classify myself as calm. I try not to yell and I've been practicing patience for 2 1/2 years now but sometimes I do feel the need to scream and rip my hair out (I don't do this, just feel the need to lol)
