Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.”
Sometimes being a parent is just down right tough. This week I had to tell my “Mr. Wonderful” or as his sister’s call him “Precious” NO and I hated it. Look at that face can you imagine telling him no? He is a great kid, works, goes to school full-time and I wish I could have just drove to the ATM and said, “Here it is.” I just couldn’t.
I have a hard time saying NO to any of them. I work on it and wonder if it’ll ever feel “ok”.
Tomorrow “The First Born” leaves for her vacation. She is going to Florida with her boyfriend. She said it was ok to use the boyfriend word, you know she has some strong boundaries. I’m taking them to the airport in the morning. I already asked if I could take pictures the answer is NO. I quote, “If I wanted to be blogged about I’d start my own blog.”
I wish I would have just said NO at Parkers last night, I’m pretty sure I failed Weigh Watchers this week. The Happy Hour at Parkers was awesome though.
I will be at Krogers in West Chester this weekend trying to register walkers for The Alzheimer’s Walk. I sure hope none of them say NO.
