Sunday afternoons

are usually pretty quiet around here, unfortunately, today was an exception as Princess
was so loud. I'm not sure why, but all I said all day to this poor kid was "be quiet" and "stop yelling".
I'm sure she was at least as frustrated as I was.It was not angry yelling, just very high volume.
I spent most of today cooking and canning.She played outside with Farmer Dad while he worked
in the yard and tried to do a couple of things around the house.Then they played Candyland and
built castles with her blocks.Then she colored and played with her cars after a nice warm bath
which finally calmed her down a bit.
Princess's 5th Birthday party is next Sunday, and I have so much to do.
The weather is supposed to be nice, keep good positive vibes for a sunny,dry day.
Our house is very small, so we will be outside.

I agree, it sounds like a very pleasant day:)

Perhaps P is already getting excited about her birthday? That could certainly cause a lot of noise;-)

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday. Mine will be quite loud for the next few months, or at least filled with the bursts of it from two avid football fans!

I will keep my fingers crossed that you get nice weather on Sunday, with a cool breeze to boot! After the party is over, you can finally relax again!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
