At least once per week, I have a conversation with future husband about me not sticking to what I say to my children.
The thing is, parents say “no” more often than its actually necessary!
When I grew up, all I heard from my mother was “no”. All. The. Time.
If someone would have given me the chance to choose where to live, let me tell you, it wouldn’t have been my parents house!
There was no love and affection. Fair enough, we had our moments where I thought that they do love me after all, but that was always crushed fairly shortly.
So to me it is not a big deal to say yes, instead of no. I shower my children with love and affection and tell them how beautiful they are and that I love them and I cuddle with them and take them out to do things…
All the things my parents never did.
Very often I feel bad because I can’t buy them things that are costly or that they have to share a room, but I am sure when they are grown up one day, they won’t mind. What they (hopefully) will remember is the love and support they had and continue to have until I stop breathing!
A “yes” doesn’t hurt anyone, right?!
Until the next time…
