You all...

are awesome! Really. I will continually thank you all for the encouragement. It keeps me going!

Here's the deal:

My sweet, precious Sophie has recently started... hmm... how do I say this politely? Sass talking me.

For example: "what? geez! but Mom?! I know! You did that on purpose!"

and SCREAMING at her sister!

So - I met with my handy dandy mentor & Josh, and we have implemented a new policy.

It's not allowed period. She simply seeing what's allowed, right?

She's pushing, pushing, pushing. I'm TRYING to remain non-emotional, firm, consistent, green light (way to go!) yellow light (calm down!) red light (time out!) - I'll post that one soon!

On top of training Sophie - Halle is doing WHO KNOWS WHAT? ha!! - and Ian is doing WHO KNOWS WHAT!? ha! :D

But - they are each watching me train Sophie, right? So I won't have to train them separately? We'll see.

So, there you have it. I'm spent.

Raising children of character, ones that I am proud to present to the world, really is the hardest job out there.

    I think it is their age... Krue started talking back the past couple of months. I think I have nipped it. Now all I have to do is give him "the look" and it stops him in his tracks. He knows I don't tolerate it at all.
