Do you share your things with the family? Like your computer? Cell phone? Clothes, make-up etc. if you have an older daughter?

Or do you prefer that everyone has their own stuff and leaves your stuff alone?

I share the computer with everyone, but my hair stuff and make up is completely off limits. I use all good stuff when it comes to hair and make-up and so I won't have any little wasters touching it. Good thing I have my own bathroom.

I don't wear makeup and the kids don't ever go on the computer, so I guess it's all mine lol. We use cell for our primary phones so if a friend calls they can talk for a few minutes, but it's not like they use them alone or anything.

i PREFER things to be just mine, for the most part. that said, i find them in here using my computer at times and kate uses my make-up once in a while (i don't wear much so i don't have a lot to offer her). they each have their own phones so they do not get to use mine, but we do have a house phone and they can use it but mostly they just use their own.

and i don't feel like i am being selfish when i say that i prefer to have my own things. i feel like i have opened my house out to my kids and grandkids and have so little to call my own (for now).

nobody is old enough to share anything yet, N doesn't use the computer yet but when he does I'll likely let him use one of the laptops.

I share. My 6 and 4 year olds both know how to use the computer. My 4 year old wears makeup more often then I do(only in the house and when no one is over of course!) Clothes I don't have kids old enough to share with. The kids take pictures on the cell phone.

For the most part everything is shared, nothing is off limits.

Ok, so compared to most of you, I'm pretty selfish! Guess I'll be working on that...

I am pretty selfish it just doesn't seem to matter to the kids. I am looking forward to the day when the food on my plate is actually mine, or when the baby no longer feels that saying "mine" means I have to hand it over to her just cause she has learned the word.
