One thing I've been thinking about lately is how to really teach kids. I remember saying once, "there's no way I'll let my kids do that" or touch that. I've always been kind of a neat freak and cleaning after everybody. I'm used to it, so I figured I would always just take chores upon myself and not bother with making my kids do it. Besides, at this age Brody will do it so that I have to redo it.. (fold laundry, sweep, etc). I was thinking back on my own childhood however when I realized that me doing it all is probably the worst thing a mom can do.
