No more nice girl…

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

I have always considered myself the "mean mommie" because I discipline my kids, I mean it when I say "No", I realize that I am a parent and not a "friend" to my kids...this, of course, makes my kids not always happy with me, but I feel like I am installing a sense of respect, responsibility, and even manners that they will appreciate some day. However, I have not been applying this set of rules to myself over the past few years and, now, I am paying for the consequence of my actions.

I’m not happy, I certainly don’t feel pretty, and quite honestly, I’m ashamed of myself for letting this happen. But, I did it to myself, I have no one to blame but me!

Why did I let it happen? I’m a stickler when it comes to my kids having to eat their fruits and veggies, but not so much myself. Apparently, I was being “nice” to me…but, that is going to change. I will be “mean mommie” to mommie from now on! And, like my kids, I know that “mommie” will not be happy with the changes in the beginning, but she will come to appreciate the effect those changes will have on her life and the difference it will make in her self confidence!

So that’s it “mommie”…no more nice girl!

    Aww Mich...

    Firstly, GREAT to hear from ya again!!

    It's sooo easy to preach to our babies on what's important like eating all their fruits and veggies - but when it comes to us - why in the hell don't we practice what we preach all of the time??? You're so right - I'm totally guilty of this. But, like you said, it's time we take care of us - and be a mommy to ourselves. We have to be there for them, after all - and we want to be healthy mommies...right??

    You can do it Michelle! I know it!

    Thanks for your funny comments today! Hope the shop is taking off!!!

    xoxo
