You've seen this before, right?
I want to put this in both of my kids' rooms.
They need to...
They need to know that their Mommy and Daddy aren't always going to say Yes.
We will say
We will get mad.
We will yell.
We will tell them what to do.
We'll protect them
even when they don't think they need protecting.
We will definitely track them...every single move.
When my hubby and I got pregnant -
We made the decision to be parents that care.
We didn't decide that we'd be nice or mean...
We made a commitment that we would be parents to our children, not their friends.
We defined our roles simply.
And it works...for us.
Yes, I want my kids to be able to come to me about anything.
Yes, of course, I want their love for me to always be unconditional.
But that does not mean that I'm going to let them have the run of our lives.
We are the adults.
They have to learn from us.
We are their example.
No one ever said parenting was easy.
I'd rather my kids say that I made their lives hell than hearing them say that I didn't care.
Because every single ounce of me
for those two little humans that God blessed me with.
And I'll be the parent that He wants me to be for them
And I'll be that parent,
