My Daily Truth
I get daily emails from a website called The Brave Girls Club, and I really do enjoy them. I've been thinking so much lately about my life and situation and comparing it to others lives and situations. I choose to be a stay at home mom and I feel that its best for me and my family. If I thought that daycare was better for them then I'd send them to daycare. I don't. I think what I do for them is best. I prefer evenings with my whole family to evenings out with my husband, though I certainly do enjoy those too from time to time. A minivan was the right choice for us. Not everyone likes them or needs one but for us it works. The way I discipline my children is my choice and no one else's (well, Martin gets a say). When and where I send them to school is also my decision, and I will choose what I feel is best. The point here is that what is "best" is different for everyone. I hate it when someone tries to shove it down my throat that they are doing this, that or the other thing when what I have chosen is something different. Obviously, what they are choosing to do is their decision and what they feel is best for them and their families, and the same goes for me.
