How did I know that?
My kids had an extremely mischievous weekend. It truly took all my patience and strength – but more importantly it took me paying 100% attention at all times. Of course they didn’t think I was. I loved it when I was at the grocery store and they were behind me – without even turning around I would say things like “put that back”, “that’s enough now”, “I don’t need that today” – I kept hearing them whisper to each other “How does she know what we are doing? She isn’t even turning around? Maybe she really does have eyes in the back of her head?”
That is when you know you are doing something right! All it really is, is silence. The second they are not loud and unruly – they are up to seriously poor choices. They can figure that out for themselves when they have kids though. For now, it is the secret of all of the moms of the world.
