one of the hardest things as a parent is to know when to just shut up or when to speak up. sometimes i think i do the latter maybe a little too often. i'm what you call, as i refer to, an extreme mom. i could probably be featured on the animal planet channel spinning off of the show most extreme animals. the show might go a little something like this:
first they would go through 10 - 2 of the most extreme moms
and then here's where you would see my picture, michelle gautreaux rolling in as the #1 most extreme mom
forget the king of the hills, this lady will have you heading for them
they would then graph me in green, localizing all my dangerous points which might include my fierce voice or my quick & concise manuevers when it comes to a child on the run from my wrath
i would definitely have to say though that the focus would be on my punishments - always extreme, always over the top
but i do hope in my segment they might mention that i am compassionate, i love deeply, i give whole heartedly, and i expect nothing in return. b/c even in that sense i'm extreme as well, just ask my middle school child who i embarass daily.
