And as hard as it is, those are the parts of life you remember. The middle times fade away, while the great times and the hard times stick with you forever.

I Hate Being Therapeutic

Please follow the link to one of my favorite parenting experts. Her name is Christine Moers. Her FB is .  I love her! My goal is to do more therapeutic parenting. It's a long road for me. It does not come natural. It is hard. It means setting aside my crap. It means that I have to look beyond the behavior to the fear. This is not natural for me. It's almost too hard, but it seems to help. It helps me not be so mad. It doesn't escalate the situation. But it's hard.

Oh, and I don't do TP very well, or very often.....

Santa and God, Best Bud's?

Today Genet asked me if Santa and God have a good relationship....she followed that up with that they must be good friends and that they are probably neighbors......I sorta just mumbled through my response...
Way to go mom with that whole "Santa is real" thing!

I'm doin' it.

I have a vision, but I'm not sure how it will all pan out. I want this to be a place that I can share stuff in my life...and to have a journal, so to speak about life in parenting. It may be open, but I think it will probably be closed...we'll see.
