So many of the responses last week were SPOT ON about parenting. If you haven't read all of the comments I suggest that you do-great stuff there! As Kelly said, I believe that kids need a parent more than a friend-something I try to do. The best advice given to me, though, was that YOU know your kid best. Their cries, their joy, all of it goes into making the best decisions for them, for you, and your family. As an example, check out Marcy's post about knowing something was wrong with her son and fighting to do something about it. She knew, she fought, and she won in the end.
As for our question this week: what is the one chore that you can pull yourself off of the couch for? You know, the one thing that will make you think that your day has not been lost to blogging, television, and the like? Or what do you do to make the other people in your house think that you got off of that couch? ;-) Tell all people!
