Spring Break!

Standard

Is anyone else starting Spring Break this way?  Must caffeinate before attempting to tackle Mount Laundry!  

Too many parents dread  Spring Break, because we as a western society have been lulled into this “me first” way of thinking, which sadly means we no longer prioritize our own children above ourselves, and that sucks!  I’m not anywhere near being a perfect parent, but I wake up each morning and try again.  

Today we have a full day planned, and I’m really excited about it!  First we’re going to clean the little boys’ room, and then we’re going to decorate it with a superhero theme!  

I love doing special things to make my kids feel important and treasured.  It doesn’t take a whole lots of money to bring my kids joy, but they can sure tell when I put effort in and when I don’t.  More than anything, it’s my attention they crave, so when they can be involved in projects like this with me, it brings us so much closer.

A New Gear!

Standard

For so long my 6 year old has started every school day in neutral, and I have to push him so hard to get each task done in order to get to the bus on time.  I recently put him on a strict alarm system, which seems to be exactly what he needs.  I set an alarm to begin each of his morning tasks, and since he can read, he knows exactly what to do when the alarm goes.  There’s no pushing required 😊

– Lovin’ life! 😀
