Okay guys.  I stink at asking for favors, but here’s what I need you to do:

Read it.  Even if you read the original version of this essay on my blog, click through and read it again.  The more people who click through to, the more street cred I’ll gain for future writing gigs.

Like itRetweet itFavorite it.  Go crazy with it on social media.

Comment on it on  I promise I’ll respond!  Think about all the freakin’ times you’ve said no to your kids and immediately wished you hadn’t.  I’ve already said no this morning at least a dozen times for no good reason at all!

Last but not least, SHARE IT!  Send the link to every Mama you know who has struggled with the word “no,” which I bet is all of them!

I’m a Grateful Mama for your support!
