What am I doing wrong???

Saturday, January 7th, 2012 - discipline, histrionics, more discipline, more histrionics.

I know I am not the only parent that wonders what they are doing wrong.  I'm telling you, some days it is easier than others and today was one of the others.  I think that people should stop selling tickets to the battle of the network stars and just sell tickets to the battle of the wills that go on at my house sometimes.   Wow - how did I get to the place where my 7 year old thinks it is OK to argue, tell me that I am not speaking to HER kindly and/or disobey me all in one 10 second span of time?

Progress, in teaching little ones, is slow.  Like a tootsie roll pop taking so many licks to get to the center, it must take a certain number of admonitions before it gets into their tiny little growing head.   I swear, if I knew the number I would just sit down with the kid and get them all out at once. 

As for blogging, I am spending a little more time working on the design of the page than writing.  It's just so fun changing the font colors and styles and seeing what feels right.  I wish I could figure out how to import my twitter feed and other items to my page...  Making me crazy!!! 

 Good thing they are cute - saves them from my wrath on many occasions.  That and the way they smell...  So fresh and sweet.  Oh, and the laughs when....  Oh darn - there I go losing my mad.  Can't have that!!!

Organizational Tip of the Day 

I cleaned out the garage and finally got rid of the paint cans filling up my shelf...  I had been saving them in case I needed to know what paint went where.  My brilliant husband said it might be better just to take photos of the paint so I would know and then, alas, free shelf space in the garage.  LOVE IT!
