A Motherhood Meme

I would never: want my daughter to feel ashamed.

I always: praise my kid for good behavior.

I got an easy ride when it came to: (I really hate to jinx this, but...) how easily The Kid will go to bed. She may not always go to sleep, but she never puts up a fuss about going to bed.

The part I dislike most about parenting is: always being the bad guy.

The part I love most about parenting is: all the hugs and kisses and knowing at the end of the day that she is a kind and well-behaved child and I am pretty much responsible for that.

My terrible parenting secret is: bribery. It works 98.5% of the time.

I would describe my approach to discipline as: setting clear cut rules and making sure The Kid knows that if they are broken what the consequence will be (time-outs, no special privileges, etc) and STICKING TO MY GUNS.

My worst parenting habit: letting her watch tv so that I can have 5 minutes to myself.

The one thing I am really proud of is: how independent and well adjusted she is.

I probably am too lenient when it comes to: making her try new foods.

I hope my daughter inherits my: love of the Arts.

I hope my daughter doesn't inherit my: suspicious nature.

I love that my daughter is: so freakin' funny.

The thing I miss most about my pre-mom days is: having a social life.

Motherhood is: incredibly hard, but incredibly worth it.

5 mins? shoot each video is about 30 mins min and sometimes a full length movie is around 2 hours. You need longer TV shows ;}
