3.) Describe a time you allowed your child to do something that you normally would not let slide.

When I read this prompt I couldn't think of anything significant that I've ever let slide with any of my kids.
I decided that this made me sound really anal, or even petty, so I decided that justification was in order!
Hence all these pictures of my kids at end of 2008 prizegiving. There's even one of Simmi's prizes (just so she's not left out).
I tend not to let anything significant slide, and I believe that these pictures of my kids' achievements are partially a result of that. I feel proud of them for achieving, and proud of myself for persevering even when I didn't feel like it. It's just a pity I can't seem to apply the same principals to losing weight or keeping within my monthly budget!!!

I wish I could say I didn't let my kids slide on things sometimes, but I do. Maybe because they are still so little.

Thanks for stopping by!

As for the writer's workshop, since there are so many participants I tend to stop by the one's who leave me a comment FIRST. I feel like it's only fair I return the love...sometimes I don't even get through all of them. I NEVER make it through that list!! But I always try. :) Make sure to leave me a comment on those days and at the very least you'll be one of the first on my list! Thanks for participating though...at least you're writing!!!
