i so love that you want to be like your big sister, especially in the helpful ways. when your sister asked to be excused from the table tonight and she put her dish in the sink, she had already finished her dinner. i appreciate that you wanted to clear your plate, too, but next time please be sure all your food is in your tummy first.
i love that after she had dumped all of her food on her head and all over the floor, she realized that there was rice in her hair that was perfectly fine for snacking on!
subject change: thanks for all the comments and emails from my post yesterday. i appreciate all the support and encouragement. i know that this is a phase and it will pass, but it still is hard to be in it, even knowing that. i’m having a huge internal battle between just knowing my kids and loving on them the ways they need it right now, or to just go back to discipline. i’ll post more on this later, its a big one, too much for my mind to deal with this late! good night.
