Be A Better Mom Monday |Don’t Speed

I’m sure you are a better human being than me and obey all traffic laws. I sincerely hope you do.  Since we have had children I have really noticed the hypocrisy of trying to get them to follow the rules when we, as grown-ups, don’t follow those we are given, primarily, traffic laws.    As my 3 and 5 year olds have started to inquire about why we do everything we do while we are driving and why some people are pulled over by “cop cars” etc, I’ve really noticed the challenge in maintaining integrity in this area of life.…

I honestly don’t expect much from them, however, I’ve seen some ways other moms include their young ones in their housework and I’m impressed.  I’ve incorporated a few of my own and I’m just dying to…
