My kids' attitudes are completely affected by my attitude. If I am tense, crabby, or quick to anger, their attitude's reflect the same thing. So the last three days, I have being making conscious efforts to be more joyful, playful, and relaxed with my kids. I am trying not to get worked up about the little things, and I've been choosing my battles carefully. I have been quietly disciplining instead of reacting with anger and loudness :) Addie responds so much better this way and we've had barely any sassiness. Life is too short to be crabby. I'm tired of trying to "survive" or "get through" the days and weeks. Time to live and love on my kiddos each and every day :)
I choose joy!!
