Another thumbs up to you Lemondrop!!!
I am ALL about my kids understanding that I am a person with feelings-JUST LIKE THEM.
Their feelings, their needs ARE important.
SO ARE MINE.
I would die for my kids.
But I expect them to respect my needs too.
One of which is to be LEFT ALONE during bath time unless it's a TRUE emergency.
One of which is to get my walk in daily.
There are others-but it's key to make sure that kids understand that we're people too. Otherwise they end up being adults who think that the world revolves around them-which it does not.
