So it has been, and so it will be, until the time they are making their own decisions.
You know the "Can I have this and this?" Or "this and that?" Or "how about this BOG piece and then this sucker???"
Now whether you are a LET THEM EAT IT ALL AT ONCE kinda mom or a Lets space it out to last kinda mom ( which I am )
We have all been through the Candy Negotiations in some form or another.
I know that if I let them eat it all and get rid of it I will not have candy woes anymore. However My right Brain, or is it my left? Which ever darn side that has the reasoning part ( ***NOTE TO SELF, RESEARCH WHICH SIDE CONTROLS THE REASONING )
I just can't let them eat it all. I think WHAT IF I did they got a cavity ( because somewhere in my crazy brain I think that spacing the candy out, will prevent cavities )
Or WHAT IF they get a tummy ache. Or What If they go into diabetic shock. NO THEY ARE NOT DIABETIC. But WHAT IF they did became diabetic because I let them eat it all.
( oh man my brain is a SCARY frustrating maze of confusion and STUPIDITY... )
Can one take an actual brake from their brain?? If they can I SO NEED IT....
So I ask. What kind of mom or dad are you?
