More on how to be a good mommy

I've been thinking about Popcorn's examples of how she will be a good mommy. It reminded me of other instances where she shared what she would do as a mommy. You know I just had to share!

When we lived in La Vernia, TX Popcorn had to go to daycare 2 days a week while I worked. She would get mad at me because I would not allow her to wear flip flops to "school." She would stomp off to her room to get her shoes, yelling over her shoulder, "When I'm a mommy I will never let my children wear flip flops! I will throw their flip flops away!"

I would make her stand in the corner for her time out. She would always say, "When I'm a mommy, I will make my kids go to time out every day!" I think she felt that she had no power as the youngest in the family, and the only people she could perceive control over were her future kids. I think. Heck, who knows how this kid's brain works?

Now, she is telling me how she will do things differently than me. Times are a-changin'. I'm sure I'm really in for it with this one...
