Dear Biotin: please hurry up your magical powers and make my hair grow like this
Dear Hair: I like what you've been doing lately. Your letting me have fun with curling you and not flattening after 2 hours.
Dear Troy Maximus: you are getting more and more fun (and active) every day. The things you do to make your dad and I laugh... I swear kid, you can thank me for that center of attention desire.
Dear Target: Im walking in there to get 2 things - body wash and socks for the hubs. PLEASE don't hyptonize me with those clearance racks & conscious, don't whisper to me, "Well today IS payday and all....".

Can we just get real here for a second? Lets talk Momma Bear instincts. Yes, I am THAT mom who is a momma bear to the fullest. When it comes to my precious T Rex monster of a son, I believe he should be tough. He is a boy, and call me old fashioned, but I think its ok and *gasp* actually good for him to fall down, scrape his knee from time to time, get dirty, climb on things, etc. I do NOT baby him in terms of life experiences that will be a valuable lesson to him. Of course, if he is gonna grab a hot item, Im not going to say "Go ahead, burn yourself kid". Y'all get the picture tho. This even comes down to playing with other kids - he needs to learn to share his toys, communicate with other kids, interact and observe, be exposed to colds to build that immune system, etc.
With that being said, I will have you know that you will see the Momma Bear mode come out when a child (for the most part older), jacks a toy from my kid just because they want it, or don't want him playing with. Same goes with if I see a kid hitting Troy, kicking him, whatev. I have sort of gotten used to immediately getting after the kid, in a proper and respectful way of course, and then making sure the parent addresses the issue. Something like "Hey, Rebecca, can you give Troy back that toy and you guys can share?" So see, not too pushy or anything.
Well, I have heard some people tell me they would prefer the kids work it out themselves, or let the other parent handle it and would NEVER confront someone else's kid. Personally, I don't see an issue if the parent themselves aren't jumping on the issue faster than I am.
So I ask you other Momma Bears (or Future Momma Bears)....What would you do?
