We really stress independence around here. I really did NOT want to be MY  mom. LOL, I put my mom through so much, and she totally catered to me in that respect! I really don't know how she did it, it would drive me nuts! My mom would hold my chewed gum in her hand until she found a trash can. Even then, I wondered how she stood it,lol.

I say, "nope, I don't do that."  ...  Usually, I don't...  however, if I'm honest with myself, there are times I let them get away with moves like that.

Example, I fed all the kids breakfast, later gave them a snack... now I'm finally hungry and I pull out myself a small snack.   I end up giving them EACH a bite and now the baby keeps duck-walking back over here getting more bites because of how cute he is when he just walks over and holds out his little hands...

Yeah, I'm a sucker for punnishment sometimes.

 Not so much now that they're getting older, but definitely when they were younger

I feel like that somedays.  I have raised my youngest to be super independent and my oldest was to independent because of how she was raised in her early years and we've had to reign her in, in many aspects.

LOL, I am surprised that I have gained any weight at all with this pregnancy what with mooch #1 over here on the left and mooch #2 on the right.  They are horrible!  And I can give my daughter the exact same food but apparently mine tastes waaaayy better.  SMH

 The one with the pancakes...oh yeah!!!  The rest...very rarely.  My mother used to ask us if our legs were broken, and I've found myself saying exactly that when they try that crap with me. Yep, I've become my mother.
