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.
