Saturday Six!

BWS tips button


You know the Drill! Answer the questions and link up!

1.You get a million dollars, what's the first thing you buy?

A new house! I wouldn't spend all the money on the house. But maybe a third of it!
I really want a new house and a little bit of property.
What do you consider to be the best things about yourself? (Your best qualities, what you like about yourself etc.)
Oh hmmm.....My boobs? Oh no...That's what everyone else likes.
Um....I'm able to sympathize really well. So that makes me a pretty bomb listener!
What do you consider to be your weaknesses?
Oh I empathize TOO well. And then I break myself trying to help others.
I get so involved helping others that I always get completely screwed.
Have you ever made a scene in public? Elaborate!
This one time my SIL and I took Caden to a petting zoo when he was 2. Half way through we stopped for lunch but Caden didn't want to eat he wanted to keep playing. But I made him sit and eat. The whole time he was kicking and screaming and flinging himself into his stroller. (Which he had never done before and hasn't done since.) Finally I said "Knock it off or I will spank your leg!" And this woman, who was obviously waiting for me to do something, stands up, flicks open her cell phone, and says really loudly "I'm not ashamed to call the police on child  abusers." OK! If I had a belt or a two by four in my hand, ready to beat my child, then yes. I can understand her flip out. BUT...This was a child throwing a fit and I am his Parent and I am only going to swat his leg with an open hand.
So I stood up and, really loudly said "I will discipline my child as I see fit. Just because you don't have the balls to do it, and your child will spend his life making you miserable with his behavior, doesn't mean you get to act all badass now in front of your friends. They would probly respect you more if your kid didn't walk all over you!"
She sat back down and kept her mouth shut after that. And apparently Caden took the hint too, cause he behaved, ate and then was able to go and play.

Any annoying quirks you possess?
I chew on the inside of my cheek when I am stressed out or thinking too hard.
Are you more aggressive or passive in your personality?
It honestly depends on the day.

Ahhhh-a people fixer. Yeah-definitely not a good route to go. Seldom does it work and usually you are the one who ends up broken!

That's why I love ya doll!

It just makes me so proud of the women that will stand up when they are wrong. I didn't do it until I was older in life, and I wish I would have been more that way when my kids were growing up.
