Children do not always behave.
They are often sassy. Sometimes disrespectful. Occasionally very hard to be around. Take today for example…or even yesterday. The tantrums, the yelling…the screaming….It helps me to focus on their sweeter sides when I’m feeling especially intolerant of this behavior (all fancy language for ‘My daughter is driving me nuts!’) However, to get through it, this is the face I’m going to conjure in my mind:
It is remembering these images…these sweet moments that is helping me to focus as I deal with her terrible 3’s…or almost 4’s..or whatever is causing the whining, crabby, crying mess she has been been. (And no she isn’t sick!)
Focus. On. The. Sweetness. OK…I almost have it….Got it!
