So Katie mentioned that she is trying to remember that she is modeling healthy behavior for her children. I think this is a great way to look at it. I can tell that I am modeling something... I am the only "girl" in my house. I have 4 sons and a hubby. My 3 year old likes to point out the difference between boys and girls and recently started saying things like, "girls don't eat candy huh mom? Girls don't eat ice cream! Girls don't eat cake!" LOL! Maybe I'm modeling self control or MAYBE... he's really confused as to exactly what my role is these days!
