    A mom that knows how to handle a situation. husband and I were checking out at the grocery store. There was a mom with several children in the line next to us. ONe of her children was just bellowing that she didn't want to share. I turned and didn't stare and sighed thinking how often that can happen. Then she did an amazing thing. She looked at her daughter and said " you don't have to share" The child stopped crying and I thought to myself Holy carp she is giving in to that. Then the next sentence was the kicker. "You just won't have any then." I wanted to give that woman a hand. The stunned look on her child's face was amazing.

    Definately a warrior mom that can handle a situation.

    Great way to handle it! She deserves an "Attagirl" for that. It is neat to see how other moms handle things, esp when they do such a great job of it.

    I finally watched a bit of that Jon and Kate show. It just seems like a sad show. Even the ones before the big announcement. She seems SO tied up in what things should look like. I cannot fathom how a marriage could actually survive that kind of pressure.

    But the kids are great.
