I Always Know What To Do

Callie, age 4 ½, giggling as she handed me a Flavor Ice and I got the scissors to cut off the top: “You always know what to do! You know to put my clothes on, to cut things!”

That’s my job. I may not keep an immaculate home, but I definitely take care of my kids. And if their faces are dirty sometimes or their hair isn’t brushed, who cares? Their souls are clean and their hearts have been brushed. That sounds weird, doesn’t it? But you know what I mean.

I want to know an area where you slack off. You can’t shock me (I saw the Oprah where the woman said she sometimes doesn’t bathe her kids for 3 weeks), and you may end up in the next edition of The Laid Back Mom’s Parenting Guidebook.

And if you want some more good comments about yesterday's post, Friend me on Facebook ... Kerrie McLoughlin. The discussion kept going over there, and I am NOT the crazy one ... this time.


  1. I would have to say making sure my kid's teeth are brushed. It's one of thsoe things I always forget because I'm tired. I TELL them too. But today at church, I almost fell over when my son whispered to me. Talk about dragon breath. Then my other two leaned over to say something and I about fell off the pew. I said, Dang, you guys! You're killing me here. Brush your teeth"!

  2. LOL I am so not ready to share! It's too awful! :P
