Oh no....

I'm my mom!!! LOL This afternoon, I realized how much I'm starting to take after my mom :) When we were kids, we never really did anything for ourselves because a) when we made our beds or put away our clothes, our mom would just redo everything we did because it wasn't perfect (ie: her way) or b) our nanny would do it for us (yes, there was a brief time during our childhoods where we had live-in nannies.

Anyway, the point is that we never really learned how to do things because whatever we did was redone because it wasn't done the right way. Today, I saw that I too do the same. *Yikes* My two students were doing such a wonderful job washing my SUV and when they were done, they happily announced that they'd done a great job. Oh, and a great job it was! My vehicle is now black again!! The only thing is, when they went in the house, I snuck back and retouched some of the streaks they'd left behind. I told myself a zillion times that I would never do that when J and I have our own kids and here I am doing it.

I promise that when J and I have our own kiddies, I will let them help with the dishes and cleaning up, I will let them put away their clothes, make their beds and keep their rooms clean...even if they're not always spotless, streak-free, wrinkle -free,etc. because kids are kids and don't do things like adults do and kids learn through 'doing' and shouldn't be discouraged *sigh* Do I have OCD???? Hope not! LOL
