Do you have any bad habits?
Do you ever see your kids developing similar habits to your own, and has that helped give you that extra push to put an end to your own bad habits?
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

My biggest is the soda habit, which I currently have down to 1 can a day. I would never let the kids drink soda at home, only when we went to a restaurant, and even there I would limit it to Sprite or Sierra Mist. I'm hoping that if I can cut soda out completely within the next two months (giving my DF time to cut his habit, as well), then they will start making some better choices with us.

Brig's dad decided to stop smoking after Brig told him he wanted to smoke when he grew up. I was sad to hear about Brig saying that, but happy his dad realized he needed to change.

Ry, happily engaged to Zach.

I chew my nails It is an awful, gross habit, and sometimes I see Claire doing it, too. I am trying so hard to quit...not only so she won't do it, but because I hate that my nails look so awful.

I curse..often when I get hurt or frustrated.

And yes, Liam loves to say G-Dam#-it. Sometimes I think I need to tone it down. But I am so bad at it. Lol. I try not to use the f-word...does that count??!!

I use foul language, like a lot. The "F" word is in almost every sentence. Same with DH, I have been talking this way since I was little. My parents cursed around us ALL THE TIME so my brothers and I did too and we never got in trouble for it. I always say it is just my vocabulary. We did not ever get in trouble in school for it because we knew that was something we did not do in public, but now that I am an adult I use it everywhere. Not something I am "proud" of but it's just me. Yeah...

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

Omg Katy, I am the SAME way! DH is always like "okay......" Would you consider that a bad habit?
