I agree, I felt the notion that staying home allthe time somehow makes someone a better mom to be a silly insinuation as well. You were the one who implied it though, not sapphire.. I think she just wanted clarification, in hopes that you didnt really mean it the way it came across.
I was stating how I do it. I do it that way because it resounds with me as right. I don't spend my time thinking up ways I can do things to be better than someone I never met on MDC! I think this conversation has gone overboard. Evidently no one wanted any honesty unless it contained the words "everything everyother mom does is awesome, I agree with everyone that leashes are the bomb and even if I don't use them and think they are wierd I still love and respect everything everyone else does, viva la leash!"
Sorry, I didn't get the memo until just now!
