A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Discipline

These kind of speak for themselves. 

First Day of the summer, 9:30 am, took about 20 minutes to complete.  It should say "wiping my feet" but I was too angry to be so exact.

Same day, took about 3.5 hours to complete, including a tantrum, screaming, time-outs, slamming of doors, a nap (for both of us) and finally a finished product.  Her defense? "I didn't put them on her face, just her belly!" Note the original with scribbles and post-crumbled into a ball crinkles.  It was quite the stand-off.
 
 We've been incident free for three days now, and she's been unusually kind to Charlotte.  Hopefully the lesson has been learned...

I need you to come and combat my first born with his stubbornness. I am very head strong as well, however, my temper usually gets the best of me. I know he and my girl are what my mother meant when she would say, "Just you wait, you'll have one just like you!"

who said my temper didn't get the best of me? It's the reason I go to confession these days...I finally just said "stay in your room until it's done!"
