So, if you look at these pictures, does the fact that I allow my children to remove all the couch cushions and leap about the living room on them as if they are lily pads make me a good or bad mom?
See, you might say... "A Bad mom! How could you let your children behave like such little animals? What if they leave your home and think they can do this anywhere? They are not learning good behvior!! Bad, Bad Mommy. "
OR you might think...
"You are a good mom. You are allowing your children some freedom, even if it is a tad "reckless". They are having fun, and that is okay."
So... which camp are you in??? I think I would've labeled myself as #1 when I just had one child. BUT now that I have two, and they are BOYS after all, I am quite okay with a little reckless,fun, couch jumping. You see, what the pictures don't show is that when these two decide to do this, they are really cooperating. They have to help eachother remove the cushions, set them up, and then they take turns jumping. Em has even started to count before he jumps. So, looks can be deceiving... and don't worry, they don't do this at other people's homes.
Also, I have a new love... and don't fear, I am still giddily mad about my Micah. This falls into the food category of love... Here it is folks...pure delight, as the label says.
They make an almond toffee one too that is quite delish, but this one is like a little peppermint pattie in a bottle. And, as my reckless children would say... "Yummy,yummy in my tummy!" Or should that be "Yummy,yummy on lips, grows into a fat roll on my hips"???
