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.
