I took the power back today and made the Littles take a nap. I can still do that (!) (?)
The problem, you see, is that they beg me all the live long day to watch TV and don't let up until I say yes.
At which point they have won and I have created poor patterns that give them the control and leave me anxious.
But not today. Because they are N to the A to the PPING.
Perhaps tomorrow they can earn 30 mins of TV. Or something. I must find some way to let them watch it without them having to beg me. It will probably require some consistency on my part. uuugghhh.
I received a letter today from my Great Uncle, good friends with my Father, full of condescending passive aggressive preaching about forgiveness.
I will take the rest of the day to form some thoughts about what 2012 has taught me about forgiveness, because I have a lot to say on the matter. Which is why I need some quiet time with sleeping children. I could also use some more of the Costco chocolate Christmas cookies to help me through, but, alas, I have consumed them all.
Oh! Look! Pretty things! These were taken just three weeks apart in December. Trusty Nikon to the rescue, once again.
Note to Self: I miss Three Things Thursday. Work on this.
