I saw this post a couple of weeks ago over at How Does She about how as Mum’s we should take a little bit more time to a “yes mum”… here is a definition of what a “no mum” is:
1. A mother who consistently answers “No” to most requests her children make, with or without actually hearing them.
When asked if they could get out the legos, John’s mom answered, “No, that’s too messy right now.
1. mean mom, cranky mom, no fun, stick-in-the-mud mamma
Now, I’m not suggesting that I am a “no mum” all the time.. but I do know that I have say no to Miss D a few too many times. It would probably be good for both of us, if I was to say yes more often.
I love the example of a day being a “yes mum”, the lady and her kids looked like they had a fun day! I’d love to spend a day letting Miss D suggest our activities, maybe once a month for a full day! :)
Do you think you are a “yes mum” or a “no mum”? :)
