Too Much of a Good Thing
Hypothetically speaking, a mom with 5 kids, whose youngest daughter is as small as a peanut and is presumably (although that mom has learned better than to presume) the last baby she will be blessed enough to have, may possibly not make that daughter walk enough. When they are out and about, that mom may carry her 3 year old daughter too much. In fact, when that 3 year old girl's siblings were the same age, the mom was usually pregnant and carrying a one year old, so the previous 3 year old children had no choice but to walk. That same mom may also have an uncontrollable tendency to kiss the head of the 3 year old when she is carrying her into Target, especially when her sweet blond hair blows in the wind or her little head brushes past the mom's lips. Finally the 3 year old might grow weary of this affection and say, very sweetly and sincerely, "That's enough Mommy."
