You'll be like as a parent to an older child?

Strict?
Easy?
Will you let DH or SO discipline and you can be the friend?

That's the one thing I wasnt told before becoming a mommy... just how hilarious some of the things they come up with really is... and just how hard it is to not laugh, when sometimes its encouraging bad behavior.

So far it seems like I'm the strict one, but we're working on that Tim has started to put his foot down more, and let me be the friend. He's worried that we'll develope the "evil stepmother" complex if I'm the enforcer. So she'll ask me for something, I'll refer to her dad, and he'll look at me for the answer. Hey, it works.

Hmmm... I was raised more strictly than DH. But, I know from my experience teaching that I might not be as strict as I intend to be. Since consistency is so important and harder than you'd think, I'll try to remember to pick my battles wisely and stick to my guns. I'm curious to see what DH does once discipline issues come up. I expect I'll probably be stricter than him.
