Are kids of wohm's less healthy than kids of sahm's?
ah there's always time -- we like watching Clean Sweep together in the morning over breakfast -- and of course there are high holy days like oscar night.....
I've always watched tons of tv and look at me -- smart self supporting adult who can KICK YOUR ASS in jeopardy or trivial pursuit LOL -- I'm really not too concerned about it.
Sounds like your "rules" are similar. My kids like root beer too, but they don't choose that as often. I also don't like them to have anything "diet" or with artificial sweeteners either.
It amazes me how many of their friends are allowed to drink Coke/Pepsi or other caffeinated drinks.
I have no idea if my enforcement of good drinking habits will carry over with them to their teenage and adult years. However, I grew up in a similar household where soda/juice/etc was only for special occasions (I'm sure I had it even less than my kids b/c we rarely even ate out when I was growing up). I think that's part of the reason why I like water so much. Dh, OTOH, had a mother who drank Coke all the time and had it in the house for the kids to drink when they were growing up. All of dh's siblings drink at least one soda every day and all depend on caffeine to get them through their day. Dh used to drink a lot of Coke but now he only drinks it occasionally.
My friends are amazed that I don't drink coffee or some other caffeinated drink on a daily basis. "How in the world do you get through a day with four kids w/o caffeine?" they ask me. I've never ever had any desire to drink coffee so my body has never craved it.
my kids have never been big juice drinkers.
i caught house hunters last night.
my kids prefer a good movie over station junk too.
Where on earth can you get a 5000 sf house for $500K? Was it in a very rural area?
We used to live in the DFW area and I know houses that size cost more than
