Are you one of "those" moms?

I have a friend who always uses the pronoun "we" when referring to her dd.



"We have a cold."

"We had preschool today."

"We've been hitting lately."



Lol. Really? You're both hitting? Or just her? And you went to preschool too? ;)



I know, no big deal. But it gets on my nerves a little. I tend to notice that the mom's who use "we" to refer to their kids also tend to be the ones who can't seperate their own identities from their childrens' identities and tend to be the moms that are a little too involved in their kids' every move. Actually, I read a study once that broke down the psychology of it and found it to be true.



Are you a "we" mom? :)

 I think I've probably said stuff like that before, but not regularly.

I do it on rare occasion but not on a daily basis.

The "we" in "we are having a hitting problem" means
He/she is hitting and I have a problem with it. Lol
