"How vain it is to sit down to write, when you have not stood up to live"
Thanks for sharing this Pamy! As a mama of 2 crazy toddlers, I have been thinking a lot about this lately and I think this list will be so helpful in my those less-desirable-momming-moments! I just printed it out and plan to post in my house. :)And because I haven't commented on your blog in a while... CONGRATS on upcoming Baby Lee! I hope you are feeling better soon!
"explaining reason." HA!
For children of a certain age, There Is No Reason. I have found that if I am awash with rage, I can threaten things like, "I am going to KISS YOUR FACE FIVE TIMES!" and I can feel better for having made a threat in anger and then carry out the threat without guilt. Alex won a power struggle with Henry about eating T-day dinner by pretending parts of a roll were trains, and his mouth was the steamworks. Still took two hours after everyone else was done, though. I was glad he had the patience, because I would have let the little criminal off.
