LOL!  Sounds like my kiddos!  I guess they have to learn on their own.

I learned to let go a long time ago. 

 I make suggestions, they take them or leave them, they learn their lesson the hard way and then they secretly adjust next time, all the while keeping to themselves their knowldge that mom was right yet again.

11. he and his brother each have their packing list from the troop. i had just noticed that there were. still two netting sets in the camping shed when there should be only one if they both packed one. i am a natural consequences mama. but I also know that a couple of the scoutmasters would go ahead and purchase or give up their own gear to kids who forgot something. so i want to have a bit of oversight j
