I let my children eat 2-3 cupcakes in a sitting without a second thought.
I routinely feed my children raw eggs in the form of cookie dough.
I read my children's journals.
I pop my children's balloons after they go to bed at night (on the very day they get said balloons).
There you have it. I unapologetically announce to the world that I don't do it all perfectly. Although some might think that these things (and/or other practices in my mothering style) make me a bad mom, I wholeheartedly disagree. These little quirks are the very things that keep me sane and happy, and, by extension, a more pleasant mommy. And isn't a pleasant mommy better than a grouchy one? I think so.
And if you don't let your kids eat three cupcakes in a row ten minutes before dinner, that's okay. I don't judge you :) My strengths are not your strengths and yours are not mine. You might not have a strict policy of buying only skim milk and whole wheat bread like I do, but we can still be friends.
