This is so true! A tad off topic..I used to drink some, but I stopped about 18 years ago. I had already cut back some, and we were in a fancy restaurant with some family members. The women were ordering cocktails and the waiter asked me if I wanted anything. I just said, "Yeah. I'll have a glass of wine."
My 4-year old grandson (whose daddy was a sorry POS alcoholic) looked at me and said, "You aren't going to get drunk, are you Granddaddy?"
It shook me to the core, and I realized how important it is for us to be role models for our kids and grand-kids.
Kids are sponges.This is so true! A tad off topic..
So my dad stayed with us for a month this summer. Our two year old had never met him before and it was a nice visit. My husband had been dressing her in a pair of overall pants off and on for the past few weeks now that it is cold. Every time he would dress her in these she would say phone phone. He had not a clue what she was talking about. Yesterday we were going for our walk she did the same thing.
So he gave her one of her purple play phones and she put it in the front pocket on the bib of the overalls. It just dawned on me that everyday my dad was here he would wear overalls and have his phone in his front pocket on his overalls.
It has been 3 months since he was here. She never said anything about while he was here, but she was watching...at just 2 years old!
