The author of Mean Moms Rule just commented on my blog! Yesterday I wrote about how I am a Mean Mom. I just finished her book today. So cool of her! I know some of you follow my blog, but I wanted to share for those of you that don't. Thought it was pretty neat!

I've never heard of it either, but after reading what you wrote... yeah, that's me. I'm not mean. I'm horrendously mean!

Sounds like a good book. Most of my friends and people around us think that we are too strict, while I look at them and think they are too over protective. We may be strict, but we think it's important fr our children to do their part. Even our youngest had to help me pick up his cars off the floor, and I teach both the boys how their bed goes together every morning (really, all I care is that the pillows, blankets, etc are on the bed and not on the floor at their age). I don't care how they eat their food at meal times, but they are responsible for cleaning their spot at the table afterward and take turns sweeping the floor after meals. They are each also responsible for helping me to fold laundry and put their own laundry away (mainly just the older two right now). And my daughter has learned that if she does not keep her room tidy, then I will not deep clean her room, and she'll get spider webs and bugs. She hates bugs, so she is doing a better job at keeping her room picked up so that I can come in and clean. My friends see these things and think I am too strict and spend too much time and effort on this. I'm also big on teaching my children how to behave in public and get a lot of flack for that. But the fact that my 3 year old and my 7 year old can sit through mass or my meetings for work without a squirm in their pants the whole time goes to show that I think I am doing something right. My almost two year old is getting there, but is at the age of testing limits (something the other two went through as well and still go through occasionally).

My daughter, at 7 years old, is learning that the more she follows our rules, the more freedom she gets. If she has her room clean, she can have friends in the neighborhood over any time she wants, and is ready to go spend the night with grandparents on a whim. She can stay up later if she is behaving, and can spend more time on the computer if she stays on her approved websites instead of roaming over to unapproved websites. It's nice to see the message sinking in. And gives me endurance for our 2 and 3 year old.
