As a mother, one of my biggest goals is to raise independent kids. Kids that can not only think for themselves, but do things for themselves. It seems like yesterday I was changing diapers, giving baths and feeding my kids non-stop. Now, my little toddlers have turned into little pre-teens storming through the house with attitudes and laughter.
8 years ago, you would have found me each day in the kitchen making my babies breakfast every morning, and now my kids are in the kitchen each morning making themselves something to eat to get the day started so I can get that extra 10 minutes of extra sleep!
