"It's time to get ready for school."... followed by wails or choruses of NNNOOOO!
"Yes, you do need to eat your vegetables."---"But they're poisonous!"
"It's time to clean up and get ready for bed." --- "Why!?! Can't we play just a little longer? It's not fair!"
"No you cannot wear shorts, it's only 60 outside!" (We live in Southern California that's freezing here!)
As a mother you start to become a bit immune to the wails and cries of indignation and injustice.
But for once wouldn't it be nice to be able to just say all good news?
I think this might be why I started my Yes Day.
For one day a year, I am the hero, the mouthpiece of the word Yes!
But, until then I will just sigh, roll my eyes and join in whaling with them.... it really throws off their game when you do that.
|My kids and I- I really do love them|
