Confession of a Mother of 6:
I forget everything. I have to write which kid is on restriction, for what and for how long and post it to the fridge so that I can enforce it... if not, I wake up the next day and treat him/or her like the child of God I know they are and happily send them off to school. I didn't realize I did this until I announce to my son one day, "You're on restriction for 1 week as a consequence for your poor choice." To which he replied, "That's okay mom, you'll just forget." OOoooo, desperation leads to creativity! I was going to prove him wrong.
I make lists... and I used to forget where I put them until I got smart and started keeping them all in the same place.
I love this women's frankness about life and being a mother. She isn't trying to be supermom, or waste her energy on things that aren't worth it. Just wanted to share!
