Wow! It's already Wednesday!

Did you ever wake up and realize half of your week was over and you barely remembered being in
the first half? That is how I felt this morning. Where does my time go?
Yesterday we had our weekly homeschool play date, I was still not pleased with Princess's
behavior, but I am hoping it is a stage and will pass, as the others before this have.

(Big Hugs) For my Sister of the Moon, Patience, for reminding me every once in a while
that it will.
We shared coffee, cupcakes, and veg from the garden over conversation almost entirely without
interruption by the children (although it was not quiet, my daughter sang the entire time we were there).

We collected some more leaves (they have different ones in their yard)

She left begrudgingly, but without major melt down. The late afternoon was spent reading, and making pizza
and calzones for dinner.We colored and did a few crossword type puzzles together until bedtime.
Bedtime is getting easier as well. Less cajoling, more story time, sleep.
I need my sleep. Today we will have our Little Peanut over for a visit while her Mom gets some
work done. Princess is really looking forward to it. I hope you all have a lovely day today.
I am hopeful that even if we don't, this too shall pass quickly.;-)

Now I have a few more baskets of the above to tend to.....

I SO know that feeling! I keep thinking- I really need to do a blog post- but something invariably pops up and I don't do it, and then it's 2 weeks later. I know all about growing out of phases- we're dealing with some of that off and on here too. I'm glad bed time is getting easier- sleep is important!

Lol, I'd just read your bit about P's temperament and was thinking to myself, I'll leave her a comment assuring her it shall pass ... and then I read the next bit! ;-)

P is blessed with intensity - although none of you will appreciate that until she is grownup and has become a famous actress or dancer or novelist!

She's at an age which some call a mini-adolescence. If its any consolation, 7 and 8 are glorious. :-)

Kate in NJ said...

MrsD- I thought I was done...more grew.;-)
J- I often leave it off my posts..I get tired of hearing me whine about it.;-)But if we don't really share what we go through..what's the point right? ;-)
P- ((hugs))You are in my thoughts every day when P "acts up" I think of you. ;-)
Jasmine- I'm not...I'm not sure what I wrote that sounded like I was. I'm T-O-O- O-L-D for that.
I'll e-mail you..but for everyone who knows me in real life..don't get too excited..I'm not. ;-)
I'm most likely "out of eggs" by now. ;-)Sorry for the confusion.

B- oh yes. ;-)

Oh Kate, I have been really worn out by someone's behaviour over here. DOesn't it just worn you out? AS Patience says, we will appreciate it when they grow up. But for now, alot of breathing over at my house.

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 .
