I was fortunate to be a SAHM and feel that I knew 99% of the time what they did and what they read. We would take frequent trips to bookstores where they were allowed to choose books, but I could guide them in choosing certain books and overall, since I was paying, had final decision. On our trips to the library, I again, would let them “pick out their books” but always from the sections that were age appropriate. As they got older, and I gave them more freedom, their maturity level and Mom’s instinct kicked in. Since I was a “hands on” Mom, I felt that I knew when they were ready for changes and even though they were close in age, each one was different as to when the changes took place.
From Lori’s site:
It struck me recently how much time I spend on this computer every day, blogging, chatting or playing games on Facebook, emailing friends and relatives, making cards and calendars, etc. etc. etc.
We depend on each other for book reviews, giveaways, encouragement, friendship, but how well do we really know each other?
So that is what this meme is all about, getting to know each other.
