Are there things you vowed never to do when you became a mom? Funny how preconceptions vanish upon actual motherhood metamorphosis. Yes, I allow my children to pour CHOCOLATE SYRUP on their morning cereal. I rationalize it by making a rule that they drink their milk IF they succumb to this particular indulgence. I must, however, let my audience (if anyone reads this) know that we simply have Rice Krispies, plain Cheerios, or rice Chex. Talking with my parents while they were here, their advice on raising children who won't rebel in their later years, is to say YES whenever possible. So, I find myself taking a moment to think about my answers when each of my girls makes an inquiry. "Is this a battle or the war?"
What do you say YES to?
