|Teaching my girls healthy habits :)|
I didn't learn "the lesson" until now. Not like right NOW, now but now that I'm a mother. I had to clarify that. Now that I have my kids drop this here, spill this there and what seems like viciously rearrange every single little piece of something they can get their hands on. At the end of it all... it's gonna be ME ME ME who's gonna make it alright again.
To make a loong story short. I am so proud of her for teaching me this. She may not have known I was listening (the eye rolling thing) but I was. Loud and clear. And now that I'm a mom, it's all coming back to me, like the Celine Dion song says. And I can proudly say that I am also an awesome cook, a responsible parent and super cool to boot! Just ask my kids. And it's all thanks to my Mom, I owe all this to you! I LOVE YOU MOM! ;)
Now I'm grown. I have my rules, not so strict of course like my mother but I have them and I expect them to follow them. I may not get their full cooperation at times but I know it's going in their ears somewhere. I am hoping one day they too will remember this lesson in life, I've learned. It's cool to be clean-ish. So it's good to pass on to our kids whatever good habits your parents taught us and some we just wish they had.
For the time being though, I am getting a lot of the eye-rolling thing. :)
