In our family, Honesty has always been the policy.  On occasion, we'll do Silence instead of a Lie.  (Because, let's face it, none of us can lie worth a damn.  It's written all over our faces.). But we have no problems at all calling a spade a spade. We tell each other the brutal, honest truth no matter what. You screwed up? Yep, we'll tell ya. We support you, no matter how bad it is. And we will love each other ferociously, no matter what.  Because we're family. We keep each other in line and Honest. Sometimes what we have to say isn't what we want to hear, but it's coming out anyways.  And I'm sorry if you got your feelings hurt, but just realize I'm telling you because you need to hear it.  Not because I want you to hate me.  Just remember, that one day you'll look back and thank me for it.  And you'd rather hear it honestly from family, than angrily and blindsided from a stranger.  Love you!!
Thanks family for always being there for me - to keep me in line!!

My family is like that too, we try to back each other up without allowing each other to go overboard BECAUSE we back each other up! Its very hard to do.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
