  • Oh gosh, not enough room to answer all those questions! Haha. I am in-between strict and laid-back; very strict about manners and respect, etc, but laid back about most other things. As long as my kids are behaving like respectful little individuals, everything else is pretty much fun with us. I am like my mom in some ways, but more different than the same. I'm much more laid-back and fun; my mom wants to be the "fun mom", but she's very uncomfortable with it, to be honest.

    Let's see...the thing that surprised me most about motherhood is the fact that I start awake if I even think I hear one of my kids. They're not even babies anymore, but it happens all the time - I used to be such a sound sleeper, it still just shocks me to snap awake!

  • I am generally the bad guy. I'm strict but also laid back-depends on the situation. I am nothing like my mother who chose alcohol and men over her kids. I am not the Brady Bunch mom, but I am not Roseanne either. I am probably most like the mom on Wizards of Waverly Place. I love being a mom-seeing how I have molded my child to be who she is today. I hate the fact that she is nearing high school and I sweat how we are going to pay for College. My favorite mom saying--eat it anyway. I am a fun, cool mom but I am ready to discipline and get my kid in line! My weakness is when my kid wants something I have a horrible time saying no. She's an only child lol. But I must not suck at what I'm doing because she doesn't smoke or do drugs, hasn't had sex, gets good grades--I'm doing something right.

  • I am least like Peg Bundy from TV.

    I never thought I wanted to be a mom. I can't believe that I am now a SAHM to a 3 1/2 year old boy and 15 month old little girl. I never know what they days will bring and it is great to see what new thing they will do each day.

  • 1. Strict on some things, laid back on others.
    2. A little of both.
    3. Definitely the bad guy most of the time (Dad doesn't want/know how to deal with discipline).
    4. I've got a pretty bad temper. My strength is that it takes a while for me to get to the point of explosion. My weakness is that when I do reach that point, I get pretty upset.
    5. I don't really know yet.
    6. I was raised by my dad, so I'm sort of like him. Except I have boobs.
    8. Peg Bundy?
    9. June Cleaver
    10. I think I like "Mom" or "Mommy" or "Mama" best.
    11. Watching my kids learn new things on their own.
    12. How frustrating it is when you tell them something a thousand times and they don't listen.
    13. Baby poop. How can something so small produce something so large?

  • I am the well rounded mom I'm strict on respect i'm organized and believe it's a trained trait not a born with trait i believe in schedule's that we should eat meals at the same time daily, baths at same time daily bed time at samt time daily. we devated from that sometimes but is usually only by 30 min. also my kids earn free days where we break some rules and go to bed late. except when we have all night family outinging ie fishing camping etc. with that being said I play with my kids! if we are at the park I'm swinging on the swings and running around chasing them, if we are in the bed room we play together with the toys i'm not off watching tv on the computer we have family time daily ,we also color, put puzzle's together and play games,we also play softball together everyweekend along with extended family. we have fun! as far as titles I wear every hat so I like MOMMY just fine
