First of all, I'm not like other moms and I get that. I'm perfectly able to accept the fact that when my children go to other people's houses they may hear or see some things that they wouldn't hear or see here; it's like I have to "deprogram" the kids when they come back to me! That's fine and I don't freak out about it. But last night one of them went to a little girls house and came home this morning after I'd dropped her off last night, met the mom, did a quick once over of the house to make sure it didn't look or smell wierd, etc:) She gets home this morning and over the course of the morning I learn that "Her mom let us jump on all the beds." And "We didn't have breakfast, we just ate popcorn and fruit snacks." And "No, we didn't brush our teeth last night or this morning." And "Yeah, we were awake at 5:30 this morning and played and pretty much ran the house with no adult supervision." NOW. I realize it's Saturday morning, I realize it's fun time because it's like a little slumber party, and if just one or two of these little things occur that's normal under the circumstances. But after hearing this list of 5-6 things in just the last half hour I'm thinking perhaps that's the way they run their house! Again, fairly innocent things, no one's in danger or anything, but it doesn't sound like there are too many boundaries. In my house the kids have a say and a voice and all that, but the grown ups are still in charge. What do you guys think? I'm hitting the "Tweens" and I'm starting to panic:)
