No Spoiling

I don't mean I want to spoil my kids- I think that is disgusting.

As a kid, I was not given the opportunity to explore my interests and my world. My mother never took us to the zoo, the park, etc. She never could afford to pay for music lessons or girl scouts. Basically, I was a miniature adult when I was a kid. I did housework, homework, and raised my little brother while Mom was at work or at the bar.

So when I have kids, I want to allow them to explore their creativity and interests and education the way I never got to.
