One thing different

If you could do one thing different raising your child what would you do.......

1. I would not have let Lelynn get away with so much the first 1 1/2yrs.
I let him get away with so much because he was my first and my baby. Then at 1 1/2 yrs We got Guardianship of my 3 1/2 yr old sister and I had to set some ground rules. She never had a consistency in her life so we had to provide it for her which means we had to treat them both the same so Lelynn took it hard when things changed and he still acts spoiled rotten. But I love them both as if I birthed both. <3

    Lol I feel like a bad parent seeing I do feel this way. I guess I just wish I could have prepared him for the life changing event at such a young age. He didn't get spoiled like he did before Grace came to live with us. It was like every week we had court or therapy or visitation with her parents and social services always coming around so I feellike I missed out so much on his life the first we got Grace.

      Well he is 5 now and he turned out ok and so has she. She adjusted very well and hasn't seen her mom in over 2 yrs and only see's her dad 1 time a month. Lelynn is mouthy at times but I guess he will grow out it. Lelynn enjoys having a sister although he says he wants a real sister so we are trying it might be a brother though. We get to spend a lot of time with them now since dss is out of our case and she doesn't need therapy for all the drama anymore.
